Well, here's hoping all you mums out there had a lovely Mothering Sunday.  I certainly have.  It was a shame Victoria couldn't be here but it was great to have a long chat over the phone with her.  It's been a day full of flowers:  the one's from Victoria which came yesterday in our best room, then at the church where we enjoyed a lovely service - entertained by the West Berkshire Strings and singing some very cheerful hymns.  Then back home to find more flowers on the doorstep and we all sat down to a homely lunch.

Then I returned to my project.

On Wednesday we are doing a Spring stitchery and I had been looking at it and wondering how to finish it off.  I decided a bit of crochet edging would do the trick.  Now, where was that little book of mine which is the best book on crochet I have ever had.  I searched everywhere (and anyone who has ever been in the workshop when I've mislaid something will know just how painful that is) - I was sure it was in my 'Mum's Crochet Bag ( a mother's day gift from Victoria years ago) but it wasn't there.  Anyway, after going through all the bookshelves, cupboards, bags, boxes I thought it could be in, I finally found it in my second crochet bag in the workshop.  I was so pleased, it explains everything so well:

Then I had to drive over to Wantage to buy a smaller hook.  Then I sat down and set to work. 

It took me all afternoon but I do quite like it
