I’m just popping in on Saturday morning before I head off to eight hours of boring work (he he did I just say that?)…. Bring on 6pm I say!
I have one part time job and two other part time jobs which are voluntary work and count as part of my course load… On Thursday, at one of my voluntary jobs, a colleague brought in an heirloom that her grandmother had crocheted because she knew I’d love to see it.
And it’s stunning. in fact, I’ve never seen anything like it!
Luckily I’m learning, don’t go anywhere without your camera, and said to her: “Marg darling, I’m going to have to put this on my blog.” She understood.
So here it is, and I just want to say that I think this is truly amazing and I’m not poking fun at it! I was speechless when I saw it and while we thought it might be fun to sneak it onto a workmates desk before their next client, we were only joking and deeply appreciate the style of the time and the work that went into this! I’m a little bit nervous about publishing these photos in case someone takes them and makes fun of them on a crochet-haters blog… so just be warned…. I will kick up a fuss if I see them anywhere but here! This is a truly precious heirloom and I appreciate it for that.
Ta daaaaaaa! Crochet has changed in style hasn’t it! I can see this so perfectly in a home full of that frosted peachy coloured glass… somewhere my mandalas would stick out like a sore thumb!
Want to see a swan close-up?
So there we go…. As much as I appreciate this, I really hope that anyone reading this from a different country applies google translate so they don’t think that’s my latest FO!!!!!!!
KB is still away…. and Raymond is missing her like crazy and driving me crazy…..
Apparently all his cat food is disgusting and he won’t lower himself to eat it… I heard myself snapping at him this morning “It’s not poisonous…. eat it now or you’ll be getting it for your dinner…”
Oh dear…. If I ever become a mother (which I have no intention of by the way!) I can see myself in that role already!
Anyway, I’m off before this post turns into a big solo-Siamese mother vent!
Have a lovely, lovely day everyone and I hope your weekends are relaxing and fun!
Lots of love from Alice and Raymond! XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
