One Photo & Twenty Words: the blast from the past

What? It's the 9th already? That means that it's time for One Photo & Twenty Words with Abi of Creating Paper Dreams

Here we go, then:

I'm trying to crochet. I tell a friend. She says, "But if YOUR Grandma taught me, what were YOU doing?"

Ha ha ... sounds like a wasted opportunity back then (but how generous of your Grandma to teach someone else!). Glad you are making up for lost time.

Ha! I really wish I'd asked mine to teach me, while I still had that chance, although she did try with knitting and I was a disaster. Looks like you're doing pretty well there.

Sheena said...

Its a great craft & by the looks of the photo you know what you're doing :)

Brilliant! Love the fact that your Grandma taught one of your friends, but not you!

Missus Wookie said...

What a good question - do we get to discover the answer? Whatever you are creating looks good tho'.

Louise said...

ha...what were you doing then eh!! Looks like you have mastered the art of crochet x

Daydreaming maybe??

Nathalie said...

Always a hint of humour :) I love this meme and i really should put it on my planner to play along sometimes. Nobody taught me to crochet but i wish i did...

Miriam said...

Having fun I should think :) Love it!

Mel said...

I think you were chatting! Or having a giggle with your friend! x

Nathalie said...

Yeah! You pushed me to join ;) Thank you Sian for always being so inspiring... I think my first try will actually turn into a page :)

Maria Ontiveros said...

LOL! What a great story (told succinctly). I posted two photos today - one just for you!

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

That is a good question! My grandmother taught me to crochet as well.

furrypig said...

I would love to learn to crochet so well done you!

alexa said...

And do you remember? And are you going to tell us? Lovely mini story and beautiful crochet :).

Sandie said...

Beautiful crocheting... and what was YOU doing back then?

Theresa said...

well done on mastering the crocheting. I'm envious, I can't get beyond Granny Squares!

Carmen said...

Ha! Yep. Exactly how I feel about wishing I'd paid closer attention to my Mum's knitting advice!

Jane said...

I was always too busy to learn from my mum and older sisters!

Alison said...

This looks pretty impressive to me, Sian!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Haha - adorable, Sian. And I love the way you have photographed this!

Jo said...

Haha, that's great :)

Wanda said...

Good one!

I can crochet (sort of, as long as it's a large-ish pattern), but knitting is a mystery. Cross stitch, with adequate lighting and magnification, is my needleart of choice. Wishing you success with your crochet adventures.

Melissa said...

What a great story in so few words!

Lesley G said...

I find it very therapeutic having recently gone to class to learn. Nanna tried to teach me back then but I didn't want to know!

Jenny said...

Hi, I just came across your blog from my friend Sinead's and its really beautiful! I'm actually just learning to crochet myself and I'm HOOKED already! (Haha!) It's soooo therapeutic! Anyway, just wanted to say hello! :)

Abi said...

He he! I can knit and really want to learn to crochet. i feel i lack the patience though! Thanks for joining in Sian!

Sinead said...

Great photo and great quotation as always Sian! I love crochet and you seem to be doing really well from the looks of that photo :D xx
