Have you had a lovely relaxing sun filled weekend? We have been blessed with warm sun shine here on the South East Coast and it has been blissful just to feel such a sense of hope for the Spring and Summer ahead of us. My favourite sign of this hope is when I hang washing on the line for the first time after the Winter and today was that day. I love sun dried clothing, it feels and smells so fresh and comforting and always reminds me of my childhood.
I have been on the beach pebble collecting this weekend and have enjoyed doing a little decorating with crochet. Not only do I love the smoothness of the pebbles and all their individual colours, I just love the way they feel once I have covered them in cotton with some pretty crochet stitches.
I decided to use white this time, I have used various other colours to crochet over pebbles in the past, but this weekend I wanted pure and fresh white only.
Making these is fairly easy if you know the basics of crocheting and have access to some pretty pebbles. There are plenty of patterns on the net and I followed a couple (as seen above)from this lovely book which I got out of our local library.
I was rather pleased to make up my own design for this black pebble, it just kind of happened once I had finished the two patterns. I'm rather pleased with it.
They look rather sweet together and are very comfortable to hold.
Last, but not least I was thoroughly spoilt with winning this wonderful giveaway from the lovely Lazy Daisy Jones who can be found here. Thank you so much Daisy, you have thoroughly spoilt me(sorry I have just realised I forgot to put that yummy crochet hook and hand gel in the photo!). I am so looking forward to doing some seriously chunky crocheting xox
Enjoy your week ahead and thanks for visiting
