Stormy weather

What do you do when it storms? I read, or tat, or knit, or crochet. I do not do anything with electronics... no Internet, no phones, no sewing machine. 30 years or so ago, a friend of mine was typing on her electric typewriter during a thunder storm. Yes, she was struck by lightning. Luckily, she wasn't hurt badly, but her scrape with nature was enough to keep me away from any sort of technology during a storm!

So, yesterday I read, I tatted, and I crocheted.

This is Robin Perfetti's Noelle in size 20 Omega. I love this pattern, and I'm really looking forward to all of the patterns in the set being released! I wasn't sure how the size 20 Omega compared to the size 20 Lizbeth. It turns out that although the two threads feel different, they work up to the same size. Noelle is 4.5" across.

I'll bet you guessed that I crocheted more button flowers.

I just can't help myself.

It's much easier to pick up a button and a crochet hook than to decide which project to start on next. Besides, while I'm crocheting, my mind usually wanders and during the ten minutes it takes to finish one, I usually am inspired to look at a book I haven't pulled off the shelf in a while.

Today is the last day of school, and I am looking forward to a summer of weaving, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and tatting!


  1. well the snowflake is a dream, and the little buttons are very cute like that multi-color on the last pic.

  2. Ooh, that Noelle is lovely! Clear weather today, I think!

  3. Yes, good idea to keep away from electronics in a storm! Love the snowflake. And the buttons too. I look forward to seeing what you get up to when there's no school on your agenda.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
