First week of New Years Resolution

Here we go this is my first weeks blog as I promised

I thought that today I would give you some pictures of two of my presents from my Birthday and Christmas

The beautiful box from a friend was full of the lovely books, tape measure, button drawing pins and pen all matching

The bottom right picture is a year calendar desk planner from my daughter, her idea was when I think of something to write as a blog to put it in the planner,  I have quite a few weeks planned out already I just need to set the time aside to get on with the crochet typing up first though.

Todays plan is to give you all a free flower pattern so here it is....
