Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

Yesterday was somewhat cooler and a tad breezy here but still a nice autumnal day, I had a lovely walk with the dog in the afternoon.

I don't know how we've got to Friday again so soon....it never happened this quick when I worked lol! Anyway I'm off to share an oldie with Erika again...some crocheting today.

I think this has to be my most accomplished piece of crafting....a circular Christening shawl. 
I actually made it in my early twenties long before I met and married hubby....I can't remember how long it took me to do but there was no way I'd have managed to finish it in 9 months along with all the other preparations needed for a baby!!

Not easy to photograph as it's a little wider than a double bed!
Another 3 ply piece and crocheted in one piece, then stretched and steamed into shape. It was used for all my three children and I hope it will be used for generations to come

Off to the beauticians this morning to get some waxing done, then no doubt the housework will be calling again since those fairies never put in an appearance!! Enjoy your weekend whatever you're up to.
