The flowery scarf and bookmark are all courtesy of my friend Sharon who introduced me to the Happy Hooker. The scarf is from a pattern there (the garden scarf) and the bookmark is just 3 of the flower motifs -simple.
I thoroughly impressed myself by reading American crochet instructions and not getting into a muddle!
The brooch was based on a pattern in a kit I bought from Purplelinda Crafts, a site I have (un)fortunately recently discovered and will therefore be spending quite a bit of time (and money) on I'm sure!
The flowery cake was delicious too!
Next project: A scarf for Himself. Wool is chosen, foundation row is made... watch this space!
