I'm back!

Hello again! We went to Brazil to visit my family on the Easter break. Came back feeling reenergised and with yet another crafty hobby. As if I needed more, considering how long I spent obsessing with scrapbooking...

Anyhow while I was in my hometown I saw some cheap, colourfull crochet yarns and couldn't resist. I bought some, plus a crochet needle, and a little pattern booklet. Since Ger from Little Snippets sent me some of her lovely crochet flowers, I've been dying to try to make some of my own. I haven't done any crochet for over 20 years so the results are not great, but it is really addictive and perfect for me, as it is a quick project that can be finished in a matter of minutes.

I'll post better ones when I get a little bit more of practice, but for the time being, I leave you with my PaperPlay entry for this week. Please take a look and participate too. TLF!
