Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.

A Little Lavender Throw ...

Believe it or not I had to start another project. As if I don't have enough going already. My excuse "How could a crafter just sit and do nothing with her hands for a whole month?" So while visiting Mom in South Africa, this is what kept my hands busy and my mind sane. Believe it or not we had no TV just a little radio tuned into "Jakaranda Station" the local radio station. Why no TV ... well lightening struck 3 times in just about as many months and Mom was just over it putting claims in to her insurance. In the month I was visiting we had a few really bad electrical storms, very frightening I promise you. The day I flew back to Sydney our flight was delayed cause of a lightening storm.

Very close to Mom's place is a Hospice and they had a little charity shop, where I bought this lovely thread on a big machine cone for just R50.00 ($4.00 what a bargain). With no tag it was hard to tell what it was made from, it's ultra thin and must have a little mohair in it, cause it ever so light. Don't you just love the colour! And with my trusty size 3 hook which I throw in my suitcase for the just incase I bought some wool, A new project was started.

Once it is completely finished I will repost this post and show you the finished throw, ATM I am 2/3 of the way and still going strong. This throw will end up with all the other lavender stuff I have collected for the guest cottage oneday.

Happy Crafting


  1. I love that design and it looks so soft and cuddly. Ah yes a deal like that - who wouldn't be tempted to start crocheting something. Funny, when I go to visit my mom in SA I also seem to start a knitting or crocheting project. Now you have a memory of that sweet time together.
