Strawberry top flowers and Brown Owls

Don’t these strawberry tops look like flowers? I think this every time I cut them and Amelia said to me the other day – “You should take a photo!”, so I did.

And in other news, last night I buzzed along to the Brown Owl’s club house for a little crochet lesson.

And, … ahem…
I just wasn’t very good.
I showed Phil what I achieved in the good two and half hours (above) and he looked at me like I was bonkers. I sat opposite my good mate Kim who seemed to have been born to crochet and busted out a fabulously frilly khaki square. But honestly … I think I got the knack of it… in the end – thanks to Jess and also Kirsty who sat beside me saying “through the donut and back through the donut, now catch the yarn… etc”.

But I think it might be a while before I can give Alicia a run for her money.

But it was FUN! And I got to meet some new crafty people, and catch up with some old chums and drink champagne and I laughed a lot. I was so happy that when I got home I couldn’t sleep and then today I feel pretty good. I like Brown Owls.
