A week of learning new things

I've spent hours this week trying to learn several things - How to use my camera, how to use Picasa 3, how to crochet African Flowers, how to read a crochet pattern, where to buy wool, how to use facebook and how to blog. I've also managed a little of my Country Curtains work, baked a few cup-cakes and eaten the odd bar of chocolate.
It has all been very enjoyable if a little frustrating at times. Thanks to all the people who's blogs and facebook sites have helped and inspired me.

Hand-finished double-pleat headed curtains.

Up, and ready for tie-back hooks to be positioned. - The colour of this fabric looks lovely with my customer's painting.

My Crochet Attempt

Just letting you have a sneak preview of my attempts to crochet the african flower and make it into a cushion - only trouble is I'm still a bit slow and not sure I have the tension right yet but thats cos I only have one crochet hook :-( a size 5.
