Introducing ........... me!
Hi and thank you for visiting my brand new blog. I am new to this amazing platform, and hope you will be forgiving ….my IT savvy son is steering me along while I find my way.
I am so looking forward to sharing my projects, chatting about this and that, and making new friends along the way. I am in awe of some of the wonderfully talented crafters I have encountered in the blogosphere, their blogs have inspired me to step up my game and to tackle projects I would have considered beyond my capabilities.
I have a very special project in progress. Every year around the 18th July, the citizens of the land are called upon to give up 67 minutes of their time, to be of service and assistance to those less fortunate among us. It’s all in honour of our dear erstwhile president Mr Nelson Mandela, who dedicated 67 years of his life in service for humanity.
So my contribution for 2014 is to crochet 67 little prem and newborn beanies which I will take to a hospital in an impoverished area and hand to the new moms in need of a helping hand.
Did you know? The popular crochet African Flower Hexagon was designed by two South African ladies, Lounette Fourie and Anita Roussow and first published in a South African Magazine called Sarie in 2009. It has been reworked into a couple of different Granny Square patterns, and is wonderful to use in making afghans.
That's my post done ..... phew My photographs are improving daily (so happy) and hopefully my blogging skills will keep pace!
Thank you for reading, till next time ......
Stay strong, think happy thoughts and keep smiling!
