We spotted this gorgeous Hayabusa whilst out shopping this week. I quite like the body kit on it and how it looks against the green & red bushes too! What do you think?
This week hasn’t been too great If I’m honest. So I’ve been find ways of turning down days into up days. My pain levels have been high & I keep losing my balance. I’m trying my best to stay positive and just rest but sometimes it’s difficult as I explained here.
I guess there are always going to be bad day’s & I just need to fill those days doing something easy and simple to stop focusing on the pain. So I decided to do just that and busy myself with something & ended up finishing off knitting Izzy’s red scarf I started before Christmas & forgot to pick back up again.
I finished off the scarf quite quickly and decided to make a start on learning how to crochet using this Youtube video. The first thing I decided to try crocheting was a simple flower. At first it looked complicated & I thought Id never get the hang of it! Admittedly Izzy hopping on and off my lap didn’t help much at first but I managed to make my first crocheted flower.
I was quite impressed with how it turned out although a little annoyed I had obviously made 1 too many links on one of the petals so it was slightly larger than the others and a bit wonky.. But hey it was my first try 😀
After that I felt quite confident I could make another without a video & managed to produce this second crocheted flower.
I was much happier with this one and carried on making a few more..
Eva loved the flowers & asked me to make her a headband with a flower on. ( Just happened to be the wonkiest one!) So I gave it a go and this is how it turned out..
Eva loved it and tried it on straight away and wore it for the rest of the evening 😀
I’m quite pleased with how it turned out even if Eva did choose the wonkiest flower I’ve made (haha). I have really enjoyed learning too, I’m going to make Izzy a headband next and I want to learn to crochet hearts next too.
Do you crochet? Do you find it a calming hobby too? If you have any patterns or tutorials to share send me a link & I will check them out 🙂
I spotted these pretty flowers on my walk to physio last week. They really stood out so I had to take photo! I love seeing bursts of colourful flowers dotted around, it makes such a difference.
Since winning my LGG4 I am really enjoying taking photo’s of everything. Last month a took a shot of my stretch marks which I’m quite proud of too. I love how you can capture the beauty of everything with a camera handy.
Do you enjoy taking photo’s
