Better late than never, time to share an oldie this Friday.

Sorry ladies I appear to have forgotten what day of the week it is, whoops.  Where did this week go?
I was called to school yesterday, that's my youngest not well again, bless, he seems to pick up everything that is going.  Then my husband appeared home in the early hours of the morning, it's OK I was expecting him.
I just totally lost all track of time and it was only whilst galloping around the supermarket this morning that it struck me, oh me it's Friday.

I got a phone call from work too asking me to do a short shift tomorrow morning and they're going to let me loose on the public, watch out if you are in town, don't say you haven't been warned.  It's a friends and family weekend so discounts are available if you have a voucher, we also have an Italian dine in, yummy, yum, yum.  If you are one of my regulars and have access to M & S let me know your email address and I'll send you a 20% code for clothing, beauty, home or furniture this weekend.  The voucher can be used on line or in store.

Back to the usual and today's oldie is......

Something a little different from me today.  This was a crochet hat I made from my friends wee girl called Poppy.  I am really bad at not keeping a note of the wool that I use and as this was a first attempt I was just happy to have it finished looking like the pattern.  In my own style I tweaked the design and added the poppy instead of the suggested flower, I would however like to thank Betsy at The Dainty Daisy for sharing the pattern.  She has some beautiful hat patterns if you are a crocheter do go and have a little look.

For those of you who join me sharing an oldie every Friday, thank you very much, I always look forwards to seeing what you have picked as your choice this week.
For those just joining the idea behind sharing an oldie is to reinstate an old crafty project that you have previously posted.  It can be anything you have made yourself.    My only request is to leave a short post below in the comments, purely so I can link to your blog and see what you are sharing, I will comment on all over the weekend if not today.

Do you have anything exciting planned this weekend?
I shall be working Saturday morning now and cropping Sunday afternoon but as for the rest, time will tell.  More from me tomorrow, I have found some more funnies ready and waiting to share with you.
Enjoy your Friday folks and happy crafting.

Hi Erika,
oooooooo! I well remember this one as I thought the name Poppy such a lovely name, and that gorgeous hat must have so suited the young lady.
Anyone with that name must be gorgeous too, as it's such a very beautiful flower.
Enjoy your weekend even though your working.
I'm off to the hospital with DH in a mo.
Hope your Son Son gets better love him.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
