Has it been a month??

I don't seem to have done much in a month.... just busy with work and kids and animals and nana's getting sick and so on.
But i think i have found another little addiction to add to my list of crafty things to do. I saw these on julias blog a few moths ago and wished i could remember how to crochet !! Then i thought i will give it ago and a few hexys later i have mastered the little hexys called african flower hexys. They are more than a bit addictive to make and are quite quick to do. Me being a beginer it takes me about 35-45 minutes to sit and make one i now have about 10 made. They are about 4-5" across depending on what size hook you use. there is also a flickr page of them, it is amazing just what ladies have created with them!! google african flower . The pattern is on the first page at the bottom if you want to give them ago. she has a great tutorial on how to this.
