Crochet (Alice) Bunting Ta-Daahhh!

And it is finished!

Inspired by Alice who writes the wonderful blog - Crochet with Raymond, I slowly worked my way through some lovely Alice-inspired bunting..I didn't follow her pattern exactly as I am clearly not able to read patterns as well as I thought, but it all worked out somehow in the end.

Last night, after I put a poorly Baby F to bed (an evil tick bit his head a few days ago. It sucked his blood and gave him an infection - I hate ticks. Country-folk beware, they are flippin' everywhere!) and then kissed goodnight to his big brother, I snuck back down and opened my new copy of Country Living

I turned just a few pages and then had the overwhelming urge to hook up some more off I went..yey!
And soon it was time to add the white 'ribbon' to hang it off. I chained and chained
It was looking a little chunky there for a while. But, after a little while it was done. And apart from me being too wimpy to stay on the top step-ladder long enough to hang it right, or having a decent camera to photograph it with, it was done. I had made crochet bunting and, I am proud to say, it makes the whole dull ugly wall area, much, MUCH nicer - hooraaayyy!

And here it is. I think once this room is finally done, I might do a before and after of the whole room. I think it would make for interesting reading or a terrifying horror story?

I must say THANK-YOU to Alice of Crochet With Raymond as she inspired me, and in turn, she is the reason my formerly hideous corner of room, now looks much happier! Thanks Alice.xx
