CAL #3

“My mother taught me many craft and household skills but she never taught me to crochet. 
For that I have to thank her, as it meant I had to teach myself.” 
~ Pauline Turner

Well our Canadian Thanksgiving is over for another year.  It is always a fun holiday and a time to reflect on our blessings.  It is also time to check in with Ladybird Diaries and Chrissie Crafts again. They are the fabulous ladies who are hosting a crochet-a-long every week on Thursdays. Join in if you can.

I am working on an afghan with 4 basic colours (2 different blues, cream and gray) in a number of variations.

I did not have a lot of free time this week but I managed to make 6 hexies.

Slow and steady is better than nothing at all :-)

Notice the bumble bee and hexie (honeycomb) pattern on the tablecloth?

The three hexies on the right side of the photo are completely finished but the other 3 on the left still need to have the ends woven in.

 If you are joining in with Ladybird and Chrissie, I will be peeking in at your progress.

  3. Well done for making progress, it's better than what I've done this week! :-) Chrissie x

  4. A wonderful quote. I, too, taught myself. Except, I called my grandmother to explain things like treble crochet. She was a local call, my mother long distance.

  5. Your hexies are looking beautiful! Suzy x

  6. Wow looking fab! your hexagons are looking brilliant x

  7. I love the colours you've used for your hexies, it'll be so restful and easy on the eye when it's finished. I may have made good progress on my scarf this week, but I have an unfinished granny square blanket that I started 4 years ago! So well done for having got those hexies made!
    Glad to have found your blog via the CAL .
