Bridie's new Hat.

So I was sitting there, wondering what SU will surprise us with in the not so far away summer mini catalogue.  Thinking about what is available now, and has been available in the past, in their other markets, and of course, making a little wishlist!  

I got to thinking about the cute little crocheted flower embellishments that are yet to make it to the NZ/Aust market.  Then I got to thinking that, probably, if I put my mind to it, I could make my own crochet flower embellishments (although I would need to find my glasses if I wanted to make them as cute and dainty as the SU ones!)  It wouldn't be the first time I have crocheted on a scrapbooking project (but you will have to take my word for that because that album is in storage somewhere - silly me!)  In fact, the last time I had crocheted, I am pretty sure, was on that layout.

From there the thoughts went completely away from paper crafty stuff, and were focused firmly on the crochet.  A quick trip to the shop to grab some wool, and now Bridie is the very proud owner of an experimental hat (that, just quietly, could possibly double as a toilet roll cover if we were that way inclined!)  But we are not.  So hat it is.  And Bridie is pretty pleased with it.  She wants one for her baby doll too.

See - not paper crafty - but I've been working on, and actually finishing, other projects.  All is not lost!
