Alli's Place

Where Alli shares her thoughts and feelings…

Weekly Witterings #11

1. After last week I have only been into the office once this week, on Monday afternoon to see our graduates presentation as she completed her rotation with us this week.  We get her back in six months though as she is joining our team perminantly when she completes the graduates scheme.

2. I have ditched the crutches at last, and for the last few days I have been making an effort to go for a short walk at least once a day. I can only manage about 7 minutes at the moment (more if I take a crutch) but it is improving.  I might try a swim soon.

3. Good Friday was Messy Easter Day at church. This is a couple of the crafts, Palm leaves and an egg that opens to reveal the cross.  I like to think of the egg being a bit like the tomb. 

4. It is Easter Day today.  It makes me wonder how many people actually know why it is a bank holiday weekend…

5. This week I have been working on some crochet bunting as well as creating these little monsters for Jack, Emily and Eilidh.  More about the bunting later.

Easter Monsters

These little monsters are crocheted using this pattern.  

I have adapted it slightly as my plastic eggs must have been larger, so I increased the stitches to 30 (by doing 4 single crochets followed by 2 singles in the next stich for a round) and then did two or three extra rounds on both the bottom and the top.

I also crocheted an eye by doing 8 singles into a magic ring, changing colour and doing a round of single chrochets followed by a round of two single chrochets into each stitch.  The teeth were sort of three single chrochets joined to one and then sewn a bit to shape.


So I have mad three; blue for Emily, green for Jack and a purple rainbow one for Eilidh.  I just need to get some sort of chocolate egg to go inside now.
