dear diary,

sorry for the lack of presence here over the past week or so but as you know I have been busy elsewhere looking at, fondling and buying lots of yarn, as well as teaching some workshops over in Germany. It was fun…you can read about it here.

Today I give you square number four which is put together of two pieces. First you crochet the square, followed by the flower and then you sew it together…have fun!
