FNSI for July

Well here I am unexpectedly back in UK due to family illness as my father has been unwell. Fortunately he is well on the way to recovery and hopefully will be home soon.
So my afternoon was spent hospital visiting and we found that the hospital has a very lovely smoke free garden which it was a pleasure to sit in. These alliums were gorgeous.


So I just had a couple of hours in the evening to work on my new crochet project - Persian Tiles. It is a kit by Janie Crow
This is my second block and I now have two more rounds to work to finish it off. I need 16 of these.
I love the colours in this project.
I hope that this will post successfully and that my photos are not too blurry - I am working with a basic phone and tablet!
Hope everyone had a good Friday night and that you are enjoying your weekend

Hi Lin,
sorry to hear about your dad, thankfully he is improving. You are doing a lovely job on Persian Tiles; Janie Crow has some lovely designs. I am still working on her Mystical Lanterns blanket, trying very hard not to get tempted by another of designs! LOL

Hope your Dad continues to improve!

I have "Persian Tiles" as well, although I've yet to buy the yarn. I'm not sure where I would put it, so I've been considering other colourways....
