While keeping company to my boys at the hospital, I had with me a little purse with inside just one ball of cotton, a hook, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle!
It was enough to start few motifs (taken from a japanese book!) …….
…..yes, they are the 4 suits of a deck of cards : hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs!!!!
Honestly the clubs are still missing a couple of pieces……..!!!!!
Yesterday afternoon, I decided to collect some neutral colours to crochet a pot holder for the diamond…
I was in doubt if to add a border all around, but I decided to keep it simple even because the sides came out straight and neat….. unbelievable!!!! ;oD
I took some pins to fix the right position for the diamond….
….. and then with a 3,5 mm hook and a thin variegated cotton I sewed it on, using a simple slip stitch chain….
My first pot holder crocheted by me !!!!!! I'm quite happy with it, so in the next days I'll crochet the remanent ones!!!! A simple craft, so rewarding and so useful!!!!! ;oD
