Joining Ginny this week for Yarn Along, I showcase my at last finished crochet rug with an edging of my own design. If you would like the pattern for the edge I have put it on the end of this post just for you.
I have also just finished reading Violet Mackerel’s Possible Friend which was written by Anna Branford and illustrated by Sarah Davis. This is a wonderful book and number 5 in a delightful series of Violet Mackerel books. I enjoyed it very much and even though it’s author was aiming at the junior chapter book audience, I found it a quite profound exploration of the complicated human process of making a new friend.
My personal conclusion on the topic of friend making is that age and experience doesn’t make the process any easier and in the early stages of friend making I can still get ” slight butterflies” as Violet so aptly calls it.
Male or female, virtual or face to face, friendships can be tricky. Real friendship, time given freely, has been the most satisfying experience I have encountered on my journey thus far. Violet has an interesting theory on friendship but I will leave you to read the book and find out what the theory is. Make sure you check out the other Yarn Alongs and please join us on Wednesdays.
