I met up with a friend (who I've not seen since my wedding nearly 2 years ago!), at Clapham and we had a lovely day round Richmond park. We sat in Old Deer park and had a catch up with news.
It was a lovely spot, not a sole around, and the sun was blazing, though a little noisy as we were sat in the Gatwick flight path.
We moved on to find Richmond park, which was ait of a trek especially in the blistering heat! We had to stop for lunch as we were sweltering and in need of refreshments.
We spent a lovely couple of hours around the park, and were surprised at the sheer size of the place.
Unfortunately we didn't see any deer except for a fleeting glimpse of one when we were leaving.
One thing that I have made a start with is a small christmas tree decoration.
I start by drawing a basic shape.
I then start to to follow the basic shape as crochet, increasing and decreasing where needed.
I then assess the finished shape and decide what alterations are needed. For this tree I needed to extend the original chain for a longer base, and to change when I did my first increase, for a longer bottom half and shorter top half.
