The past two weeks have not been the best for me at all, I have really hurt my right hand, I
On Saturday I went along to the stitch group and got another surprize as three more women brought in their finished hats from the hat workshop, I think all the women did a great job! what do you think?
Also I finished a hat I had been crocheting in merino yarn, you cant see in the photo, the the hat is pink, I am thinking of adding either green hearts/ stars or flowers to it ... what do you think would look best?
During the week in work we celebrated Ladies Day with the residents (in Galway each year we have a famous horse race week, every Thursday of the week is known as Ladies Day, all the women get dressed up and enter competitions for Best Dressed and Best Hat) so three years ago I came up with the idea of holding the competition in the nursing home - I worked hard this week organizing the party and clothing and buying the head pieces, and on the day I changed out of my work clothing and into my dress and hair piece - the residents got a great kick out of this!

When I got home that evening Morgan had got me these:
He told me he got them for me because I was the best dressed lady, how lucky am I!? The jug I have the roses in was a gift from my mum, it is hand painted and gorgeous!
My Aunt and Godmother Mary asked me if I could make her the Summer Rose baby set for a christening that she would be attending, I made it a little larger then the last one to give room for growth
I started this on Friday night and it was finished my Saturday 10AM! I was delighted and proud but my hand really paid for it :(
I want to also show you all what Morgan made for me, he animated a cartoon of me crocheting as an intro for my YOUTUBE channel, I cant get over how cute this is! I just love it, Here is the link to my husbands Blog - go check it out if you can, it is really interesting and covers everything from giant spiders, three legged cats to movie reviews! LINK
Thank you all for your comments on all my past posts and I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend :)
