Good morning everyone, are you all enjoying the wonderful warm weather!
I would love to be sitting outside in the sunshine, but I can only stare out the window at the stunning blue sky.
Inside my office I am FREEZING! I have two thick cardigans on, and I have brought in my fluffy warm slippers from home and have slipped them on.
I must look like a bag lady!! But I have a lot of computer work to do this week, so not moving around very much, so need to stay warm.
I have been taking a bit of “me time” recently, you may recall last year I had decided to give up crocheting. I was finding my thumb just did not like it, so I hung up my crochet hook!
I have tried a few other crafts to keep me busy on the sofa in the evening….but with encouragement from my friend I picked up my crochet hook again.
I have always been a “wild” crocheter, although I knew the stitches I could not read a pattern. She suggested that I went back to school.
So I did!
I take it easy, never too much crocheting. Any twinge in my thumb and I down tools. It’s fun and I am really enjoying it….I can read a pattern!
But as always ribbons and buttons are not far from my side…….
…..and added to my crochet work.
I made this bag to keep all my crochet tools and things in.
I lined the bag and made pockets for all my crochet hooks, allowing room for all those others I may purchase!
The flowers needed buttons, so to match the polka dot dogs I choose our spotty buttons.
Find all the colours here.
To finish the bag….it had to be a handmade label.

I love my bag, I took it to school this week and it was so easy to find everything.
Thank you, my friend for encouraging me and giving me that little push to pick up my hook again.
