I was having a tidy up in the attic and I discovered a box of crochet cottons in a variety of colours and thicknesses. It took me right back into my past.
I lived in Portugal and Spain for about 7 years and I used to love to sit in the sun and crochet the afternoons away. I bought lots of pattern design books and magazines and, as most of the instructions were in chart form, I seemed to have unlimited inspiration.
I made no end of doilies, runners, small tablecloths, even edgings for towels and bedding. How I wish I had photographs of my work. I gave most of it away as gifts. I have made so many things and I am sure I have forgotten most of them! These days I take photos of all my creations. Digital cameras have allowed us all to be able to have a collection of pictures at minimal cost. I really appreciate that.
I craft mainly in thicker yarn these days and haven't made anything in such fine thread for ages. I discovered that I still enjoy it - though I have to wear glasses now!
I am getting older - but I am still a fine hooker!
