Sometimes you just want the fix of a satisfying little project, and that's generally when I turn to crochet. Last weekend, I grabbed two colours of Scheepjes Sunkissed, a 3.5 mm crochet hook and got to it. This cute little purse was finished within a few hours... but it took until today to get some buttons.
I originally wanted black and white, but shipping was prohibitive and I haven't left the village this week to get any. Finally, inspired by the Mothers' Day flowers that are enjoying their final moments of glory, these purple buttons were rescued from a charity shop tin for 10p each and will serve as a nice reminder of the weekend it was made. If anyone would like to make some of these, let me know. It is a super simple construction and I can post the instructions.
This weekend we are visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour, I'm hoping I won't have to drive to I can get on with another little project. Wish me luck! Oh and before I go, if you read Inside Crochet, check out page 10 of the new issue (issue 88) - you might just see a familiar face!
