Work in progress



My little stack of grannies is surely and steadily growing and I now have enough for the front of my cushion cover..whoop whoop!!  I've made a start on the back, I'm going for one big Granny...how much fun are they to make.  


I've been asked a couple of times about the yarn that I using...it's  Drops Muskat and it is so lovely and soft.  I do love cotton, but I have to say it was a bit of a challenge initially as I found that it did split quite easily, but I'm finding the more experienced that I am getting, the less I am doing this.


It does come in a gorgeous range of colours as you can see here and whoops..some more just happened to find their way in to my shopping basket last night...I really must show some constraint I think!  Whilst I wait for it to arrive, let me share a few more pictures with you......


Let me introduce you to Mr Collared Dove.... yes I know that is not very exciting........


however look....can you see......

....... we also have Mrs Collared Dove and they have been very busy and industriously building a nest in the tree at the bottom of our garden......

  5. Love the crocheted work. We have very similar doves (mourning doves), but they are the laziest nest builders around. Two or three sticks in the crook of a tree and they're done! Sometimes they lose the entire nest to a strong wind. I do like the doves though, and we have quite a few in our yard. Wendy x
