Finished this tonight for Emiky my niece.
I have just started to read a novel by Dawn French called Oh Dear Silvia. I chose it because it is my mothers name and I fancied a funny read. Although the main character is nothing like my mother the book is still awesome and pretty funny in a dark, twisted sort of way. For those of you who don’t know Dawn French, she is a British comedian who has done many sketches from French & Saunders to The Vicar of Dibley. Pick it up soon, you won’t be disappointed!
I got the inspiration for the colourful stripes from the blog I love buttons by emma. She has shared her pattern for a really cute giraffe but my niece Alix wanted a dog. Take a look, her blog is awesome. Just busy making a tiger for my other niece Emily.
My name is Ash and I am a 27 year old stay at home mum, I live in the highlands of Scotland. Throughout my pregnancy I was plagued with problems and to top it off, nearing birth I was diagnosed with OCD. The purpose of this blog is to share my crocheting projects and to also reach out to people suffering from OCD. Crochet has definitely been a help and focuses my overactive imagination onto something creative rather than ruminating on my obsessive thoughts. I hope people who do not have the condition will also follow my blog and share with me some of their crocheting passions and trials of motherhood.
