Hello.......... Today saw the first snow flakes of winter fall here at the Summerhouse, not enough to lay but with the promise of more to come I'm ever hopeful. I do love a bit of snow, the perfect weather for hunkering down for a spot of crochet.
Today I thought I'd share these cute little rose magnets with you.
To make them I used the Attic 24 May Roses pattern, which gives lovely little compact roses, just perfect for magnet making.
then all I did was glue the magnets onto the backs and
They were finished.
I made my roses in Stylecraft Special DK, (Pomegranate Fondant and Clematis) and they were part of a Christmas gift for a friend. I'm a little bit in love with these Cath Kidston inspired colours and think I might have to make a set for the Summerhouse too.
Joining in with the Yarn along, here's book number two of my'40s reads for 40,' it's Anne Tyler's The Accidental Tourist, I've only just started to read it so I'll keep you posted. As for my first read 'Tender is the Night by F Scott Fitzgerald, well it didn't go so well, I had to abandon reading it because I just couldn't tolerate the racism, not really sure why a book of that nature would be listed as a classic. Hopefully it's day has long since passed.
