Crochet crazy

Although my first love was always painting tired bits of furniture to give it a new lease of life, I have more recently been seduced by soft furnishings.
I’ve found myself hoarding fabric and collecting buttons old and new.
Soon I may make something with them!

Wandering through Pinterest( you’ll find me under Becky Moran on there)I discovered Textile art, which I found quite exciting for awhile.
Here’s my first amateurish attempt at it.

Not quite Léa Stansal standard but I’m quite sure it’s something I’ll return to.

This was the piece of work which so inspired me.

I’ve recently taught myself the basics of crochet.
A couple of youtube videos later(thank you Carina’s Craftblog) and I’ve well and truly caught the bug.
This is what I’m aiming to make at the moment.

I’ve only started this week but am so addicted I am walking around with a ball of wool under my arm crocheting as I go.
This is what I’ve made so far.

I will post photos when I’m finally finished.
