crochet sailing boats

Well it's been a long time since I did any Pretty, Crafty Homing, but I succeeded at the weekend.

I made one of these:

Do you know what it is?  It's being blocked in the photo above, and below you can see it hanging.

I've hung it in the bathroom. Mr CA hasn't noticed yet.  Or at least he hasn't mentioned it!  I can just imagine what he'll say when he does.

The pattern is by Bunny Mummy.  It's a fab pattern.  It works up quickly and uses tiny bits of yarn.  I shamelessly copied and added the same kind of embellishments.

The chunky glass beads and the little fish finish it off nicely.  I think so anyway.

And that's it today.  Not feeling very wordy.  I've spent hours and hour and hours today listing items in my new shop (I'm writing this post on Sunday).  Want to see my new shop?  Go on then, it's here.

Don't forget to enter my Something Old, Something New competition.  The deadline is 31st July and there is a prize!

I can just imagine what my husband would say if he saw something like that hanging in our bathroom and would think that it is probably the same as what your husband will say when he finally notices!

The hanging is adorable and I think my husband would probably have a similar reaction: just act as if he didn't see it!
Congratulations on your new shop!

Pretty! Funny how the men never notice the little details, huh?

That's so cute! My boyfriend doesn't notice anything either. The other day he says to me, "What is that?" and I look around and go, "What's what?" and he points to a picture that's been on the wall above the TV since we moved in and goes, "That! What is it?" I was incredulous and said, "you mean in all this time you never noticed that picture?" He said, "I knew there was something on the wall but I never really looked at it before. What is it?" (It's a picture of the first Cliff House in SF, taken in 1904).

Such cute little sail boats! My hubby would probably have something to say about them - but I have a weapon... put them in the baby's room! :)
Love them!
