How's the weather at your place ? It has been snowing continuously the past week. I like to watch the falling snow, from my living room window. (It was snowing when I started to write this post but was not able to post it. :-P It is not snowing now, but something worse(freezing rain) )
Having started work I miss those days when I used to crochet all day and munch on some snack and watch Jane Austen movies. But the feeling was not the same then. (the grass is always greener on the other side ehhh ??? ;-) )
I haven't dared to start any big (fairly big also) project as I knew I wouldn't be able to complete it soon.
I had crocheted this doily a while back and I didn't know what to use it for.

It's almost Friday guys, hang in there!! ;-) Till I post again! Ranjitha

Came across this while browsing. This is definitely meeee !!! Hahaha. :-D
I remember, before I relocated to Toronto, I'd shopped these beautiful colourful balls of size 20 crochet from a local yarn store. I'd almost bought everything the shop had.

I'd made a mistake while making the centre white part and still had a space left after attaching all the 10 flowers :-( To…
