I'm hooked

So, I have not been creating much lately, my mojo packed up and I was feeling so lost I could not even sit at my craft desk, I had just lost all my motivation. So instead, because I felt so lost sitting around with nothing to do (I usually sit on the couch with the soon-to-be hubby and colour once the kids are in bed) I decided to have a go at crochet! It looked quite relaxing and, I will admit that my first attempts a few weeks earlier resulted in my being asked to stop because the other half found my constant swearing a little distracting while he was trying to watch something, lol, but I went and got a new hook and it was all good. I saw a pic of this headband a while ago in someones etsy store and while i was randomly searching for something else I found a pattern for it, then after I made a few I added the inner row of petals to this one.

After a week of crochet I have a small pile of these now, but it was so nice to unwind and whip these up I could not stop :) i made some with 3 rows, some with 2, and I have tried several different flowers. I crocheted until I could not move my fingers any more, LOL!!

So, I will be back with a card or two over the next few days, I forced myself to finish one off and now I am feeling like I am getting back in the groove... or I could just show you more headbands, bahahahaha!!!

Crochet is one thing I love but just CAN'T do - no matter HOW hard I try!!! I'm envious of your obvious talent in this department - and perserverance to get there - and from what the gals above have said I reckon they'll keep you busy - LOL!
