a change of pace....

It's been a hectic week and throw a bit of man flu in the mix and you don't get much sewing time.
I needed something else to keep my hands occupied.
Sharon of Lillabelle Lane had posted earlier about an Autumn Crochet-a-long and over the summer I stashed some wool waiting for Autumn to arrive. Well the 1st of March Sharon gave the green light to join in the cal. The original pattern is from Lucy from Attic 24 who does the most gorgeous crochet.
Out came my wools.... I played with the colour sequence and then I was off...
(excuse the pic, it doesn't seem to want to turn around..)
Here is the progress so far...
  A rainbow waterfall...
I'm onto my second sequence of colours but I think I will need some more wool to make it a decent throw.
 I love the rainbow of colours and it's lovely to be working with some warm wool especially with the cool weather we have been having.
Long weekend for Labour day may see me spending some time with Sweet William. It's about time another block got appliqued. I have one ready to go. Will be back to show you once it's done.
Then it might also be time to get a ufo stitchery out and get a finish there too.
Have a great weekend

Gorgeous!!! It's very tempting to reach for some wool too, Marina! How nice to have it on your lap while crocheting away in the cooler weather. Hope the man-flu doesn't hang around too long!

Hope you have pushed that man flu (not the man) out of the window and you can enjoy what is left of the long week end.
You crochet is gorgeous, definitely a rainbow waterfall.Are you hoping for a cold winter just so you can snuggle under all those beautiful colours? Regards to S.William.
