Back Home Again!





Well back for another round of reality, hopefully by the end of this week my Mum will be settled into her new 'home' so it will be a busy week get all her 'things' sorted out, I just hope all goes smoothly (please!!) We had a long weekend outside London and visited the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexander Palace, a great show and I met Dale Rollerson ,who I did the online Embellisher course with, and of course bought some lovely goodies from her. I haven't actually unpacked my purchases yet!!! The photo's I have posted here are of the wonderful 'Hyperbolic Coral Reef' that is being 'built' in crochet by people from all walks of life in the UK. The idea originated in the US and this project is to highlight the plight of the coral reefs from global warming and pollution. My contribution can be seen on the small photo, the sticky out bit underneath the fluffy pom pom piece.

Hello Maureen, This is a fantastic piece of art. Thanks sooo much for sharing the photos with us. I had no idea something like this was being created. Hugs Judy

I know how you are feeling with regard to your Mum - mine went into a home 2 years ago and is very well looked after. The other residents are lovely people. The crocheted coral reef is an amazing effort and a lovely riot of colour and texture. What a super project to have been involved in.
