I've always enjoyed playing with colour
ever since I was a child.
I taught myself from a booklet
when I was expecting my first baby
born on July 5th
and that's today.
This preciously kept booklet only cost 35 cents when I bought it
in White Plains, New York in 1971.
A crochet hook
and a basket full of yarns make my fingers tingle
and want to create!
These are very large flowers
measuring 18cm across
(almost 7 inches)
I joined them all together to make a wall hanging
which creates a corner of happy colour
on a wall in my home.
This pattern was taken from a new Crochet Club I recently joined
called: "Susan Pinner Granny Squares".

Sue is wonderfully creative and talented
and you will be spoilt for choice among all the ideas and new patterns
which appear on a weekly basis.
