Saturday indoors

Hello everyone.  Today has been a day for indoor activities as where I live the weather has not been kind, dumping 152mm of rain in the last 24 hours.  We have not suffered any damage or flooding although areas close to us have. 

I endeavoured to take Miss G. to swimming squad this morning but a large tree was over the forest road and the police turned traffic back.  The driving wasn't pleasant with heavy rain, water over streets in places, pouring down hilly streets and into driveways.  I was very glad to get off the road and back inside. 

So what's a girl to do?  Get out the crochet and learn how to make bunting.  My first port of call for a tutorial was to Jacquie's blog Bunny Mummy .  With clear instructions and fantastic photos, I soon got underway after figuring out the U.S. terminology.  I made three triangles this afternoon, only three because I kept making mistakes.  I'm in the process of learning to crochet so it was inevitable I suppose.  Anyway, here are a few photos of me lying on the sofa surrounded by wool and two of the triangles I made.
Look at all that wool and the lumpy bits under the throw are me.
See that really is me, big feet, long toes and all.
This is much more interesting.
What an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.  Even better, hubbie made scrumptious pizza for dinner.  What more could a girl ask for.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Anne =] I love the colours you have used! The weather here is grotty as well. Reaaallly cold again. I'm hopeful that I can set the kids up with something to keep them occupied so I can hit the hooks too! x

Love those crocheted triangles. The pinks and greens look great together.

Oh, I love the start of your bunting. Fun idea. Perfect project for staying indoors.

You are getting so much rain. Hope you don't experience the floods that other parts of the country are getting.

Have a good weekend!

The weather has been extraordinary at the moment in our dear country...and of course the best thing to do on a rainy/stormy day is crochet!
