Valentine's Rosebud and heart leaf pattern link

Let's see if this works

Yes, The above link does work, but you will have to add me as a friend to see it I think.

Facebook....easier to add pictures.
Sorry to say my laptop is really struggling and I am using my iPad more and more but not finding it easy to do posts on blogger, the written word is easy but adding pictures isn't so I am using Facebook more and more.
If you want to see the free patterns I am adding just add me as a friend on Facebook.

Either use this link or the Facebook picture on the side bar

 Hope you will join me but if you don't I fully understand Facebook isn't for everyone
Hugs x

A Splash of colour a C2C in Aldi yarn.....

Happy New Year to everyone.....little late but busy yet again
And a new year fitness plan taking a couple of hours a day, so something has to give.
A splash of colour in a rather bright C2C small throw
Great yarn buy from Aldi. I've used an 8mm hook and about 100g has made a piece about 18" and is 16 rows
Link to Ravelry Free Pattern for C2C

Although the original straight version can be found in a Weldons Company pattern book
from the late 1800's, the only difference really is the use of sc (dc actually because it's an English pattern book) instead of a sl st
And it's called Crazy Stitch and they have made a hooded shawl with it
Good old Weldonsworked on the straight it's still called crazy stitch today.

This shawl has been well used in the last few days too, made in 2012 nothing beats a granny shell shawl for a splash of colour and warm shoulders.

Now I can see the worth in yarn bombing!

Make 2015 a time for sharing your love of crochet with someone in need
Kelly Kennedy has started a Facebook group up so give a little or a lot
This is a poem you can add to the gift to be used anonymously
