A lovely surprise....

Look what arrived yesterday in the mail!!!! I have finally caved in and bought wool to complete Attic 24s ripple quilt! I love seeing it on everyone's blogs...



aren't the colours gorgeous...Sorry but I started last night in the dark.....with my new



Lighted crochet hook!!!! Am just so happy I am finally feeling a bit creative again....I could crochet before I was 5, and remember being allowed to go to Waltons when I was 10 and spending $20 on wool. I would leave the shop with two bags full of wool.....ohh the good old days lol
