Hello! And Welcome To The Beginning!




Well, I'm an extremely late starter aren't I!  I only discovered the wonderful world of blogging 7 months ago (I know! How could I have missed that!) and have been kicking myself at what I've missed out on for so long.  My journey started when I'd finally resolved to tackle crochet, and the simple granny square had been whispering my name.  I'm more of an old fashioned 'look in a book' girl when it comes to things like this, but I threw caution to the wind and tappity tapped away and found myself in Attic24 with the lovely Lucy showing me the delights of the Summer Garden Granny Square.  Now, I went away and did a traditional granny square, a lovely white and pink one which was very naively and unintentionally done in a mix of DK and 4 ply yarn (oh how young and foolish I was back then) but I had done it and was ever so proud!  But as soon as it was done I went back and poured over that lovely blog, wowed at the colours, read the kind words, vowed to make all the projects and quite frankly became a little obsessed.  Now I'm sure Lucy will be very relieved to hear that I soon broadened my horizons and ventured to the Blogs I love list, trying not to feel too disloyal, and found a whole welcoming, lovely, inspiring, wonderful community full of like minded people. It's a community I want to be part of.  So here I am.

Is it a little wrong that I framed that first attempt?
