A big wave to Sian fellow Monday wavers on this extra day of the year.
Plenty of time on my crochet projects again this weekend - having ordered some yarn for a new project I decided that I should finish some of my current projects before starting a new one. Or at least get them to a sensible pause point. I sewed in lots of ends on my big project and it is now in a box waiting for my sister to finish her half. More sewing in ends and sewing parts together to create clusters of forget-me-nots for Miriam's Dementia Awareness project she posted about here.
What about the smiling lady I mentioned in the title? Crochet again - at my new knitting and crochet group. We meet in a lovely cafe which is popular with students (LoveCrumbs for those who know Edinburgh). 10 of us sit around a large round table with piles of yarn in between our cups and empty plates (I must take a photo!).
We were chatting and making when a lady came up to us and said 'you have made my mother very happy'. This lady and her mother were in town to visit their daughter / grand daughter who is a student in Edinburgh. The grandmother lives in Canada but grew up in Iran. She was delighted to see people knitting and crocheting and loved that there was a mix of ages making things together. She said that when she was young, in Iran, she saw the ladies sitting together making things but never sees it now. Her daughter said that she had been smiling since she sat down and noticed our group and that this was her favourite sight in Edinburgh and she posed for a photo with us. Our 2nd tourist photo in 3 weeks !
Hoping you all have a great week and welcome to March and spring.
