At the risk of boring you all as you read yet another post on crochet - I have some books I want to share with you. Now, as usual I'm behind you all and these books have been available for quite a while and you probably have them already; but I like them and, well, I just wanted to show you them.
First up is Vintage Crochet by Susan Cropper. I have managed, after a very long wait, to borrow this from the library as I fell in love with this wonderful picture..
it is so very 'me' and I could look at it forever. I just love everything in it. Perfect, perfect styling. I can't wait to do the blanket but will try and make it bigger so it will cover more than one leg! When I picked it up from the library and had a proper flick through I was pleasantly surprised at how appealing the other projects were to.
The second book is by Lucinda Guy and Francois Hall.It is one that some of you recommended to me for using at my Crochet Club (which, incidentally, is growing weekly!)
It is a very child-friendly book, with excellent illustrations.
It has a few simple projects as well. Very good. So, there we have it.
Now for something completely different. I am hoping that someone who speaks Spanish will be able to help me with a translation. Our Headteacher is going to visit a school in Peru (Cuzco) and has asked me to make a scrapbook of our school to take with her. I want to include the schoo'ls Mission Statement but translate it into Spanish so the children and staff in Peru can understand it. It is..
We are challenged to...
See God in everyone
Experience the Christian way of life
Be the best learners we can
I hope you can help - leave a comment or email me if you can. Thank you.
