Yesterday I picked up a pattern from my local quilting shop it was by Melly and Me. As always I have to get started on things straight away. The problem with that was, there was a crochet component to the pattern. I can knit but I have never crocheted anything, not even a granny square. So the quest was on to find someone to teach me how to crochet. It was 4.30pm so I headed around the corner to a neighbor who I knew was crafty hoping she might crochet. No luck she was sitting knitting when I called. When I got home Lucas's friend Nick was here so I asked him could his mum crochet. His reply was she doesn't play much sport at all! He thought I was talking about croquet. We had tea and I thought I would ring a friend who I thought could crochet no luck there she could also knit, but not crochet. It was now 7.30pm I rang another friend who I knew didn't knit and she said she could crochet. There must be a thing with knitting and crocheting. She was dropping her daughter to a friends at 8.00pm so she said she would call by and give me a quick lesson.
This way my first attempt.
This was my second attempt.
Then finally third time I was happy. Complete with Messenger Bird.
It has been a beautiful day here today a really cold morning but a lovely clear day. I crocheted the third nest while sitting watching Lucas play football. They won which is always a good thing.
