Snowdrops and Butterflies



Every Spring we have these sweet little flowers popping up everywhere. They remind me of Enid Blyton’s much-beloved book The Magic Faraway Tree because they  flourish in the shade beneath the huge old Oak trees that are so much a part of Cape Town. I designed this square in Spring and now it’s almost Mid-Summer! Oh, the days are just too short even if the Sun sets in Summer at around 8:30pm! I’m always complaining that there are not enough hours in a day or days in a year! So much yarn so many ideas, so little time even if I lived 200 years!  :D

May the crochet fairies always be close at hand!

  8. Hi Again, Sofia! Yes, I have been to Lemnos as well. I love Greece, and the islands. Pity I don't have buckets of money or I would move there permanaently. :D Yes, all my crochet is done in US terms. There is also a video turorial for this square. Have you seen it? Also, have you connected with me via the FB page? I'm always there so easier to get a quick answer to any questions. XOX

    1. Hi there! :D I have tested the link several times now, and asked a friend to test it as well, and it is in working order. It's possible that it may have something to do with the PDF viewer on your device or computer? If all else fails, there is the video tutorial? Let me know? xx
