I haven't crocheted for a few months now due to the fact that my hands and thumbs have been very sore this year. However, when I saw Helen's (from Archie the Wonder Dog) post on IG this morning I felt compelled to make some flowers.
There was a call out for #aflowerforjenny on Instagram a couple of days ago .... if you click here there's a great blog post relating to this. It broke my heart reading about what this family has gone through and the courage 19 year old Jenny is showing whilst planning her own funeral.
Today is also ANZAC Day when Australians and New Zealanders around the world remember the fallen in Gallipoli. My girls will be happy when they come home from school to find ANZACs in the tin! It was very strange to be baking on my own and not have the girls asking for a 'lollipop' - ie a spoon full of raw biscuit mixture!
This is the recipe I use (posted to a very old blog of mine!!) and I did just have to try one that broke as I transferred them to the cooling tray - delicious!
Life can be so fragile and can be ended way too soon for some people. I often tell people I love "I love you!" and I will continue to do so a very regular basis. Lots of love heading out from me to you aswell!!
