And then there were two!

We woke up this morning to find that another snowman had mysteriously joined the first one! I think shes actually a snowwomen!
I woke up at 3.30am and looked out the window and their were my mad neighbours building a girlfriend for their mamouth snowman. Shes not quite as tall but just as spectacular.

I'm wondering if tomorrow will bring a son or daughter snowperson!

I brought the new crochet magazine that came out last month. The members of the friendship group that I run wanted to learn crochet so I found someone to come in and teach us but I thought I'd get a bit of a head start with this mag. I have been practising for the last week and I think I'm just begining to get the hang of the simpler stitches.

I want to be able to make crochet flowers for my scrapbook pages so I got some books out of the library, but they are not so easy to understand!

Heres my first attempt though! I didn't really understand the directions so I just went my own way with it and I don't think it's turned out too bad!
Thanks for looking x

Well done finding the magazine - I'm having a right pain getting one here. Bloke in my local newsagent said shops had stopped selling it and were waiting for the next issue! I will go down there today and say 'oi you lying sod I know someone whose got one!!' ;) Going to phone the big newsagents in town and see if they've got one - if not they may be able to back order it for me.

Your flower is gorgeous - loving the colour too :)

How funny would it be if little children snowmen started appearing - what brilliant neighbours! *g*

How scary if you woke up and there was a crowd of them looking in the windows at you!!!!!! ;) your neighbours are mad Sam fancy being out there all night building huge snow people. we have a snow cowgirl at the back of ours but she isn't a patch on the ones by your house.
Loving the flower. I can see hats and gloves being prettied up with these in the future!!!
