Easy crochet cardiEasy crochet cardiIt is of course another one of these, shorter in length and with cap sleeves for summer.  Im in love with the colour, even with my favourite orange tee… which probably wasn’t a combo I would have intentionally chosen.

These photos give you the added bonus of giving you a peek at my lovely camera… a Nikon 3100.  I adore this camera, it does everything I ask and more. Well except take photos without me attached to it – hmmm I wonder if I can get a remote to do that – trundles off to search the internet and find out…

Anyway Ill be back tomorrow, Im going to share a couple of other WIPs and some goals for 2012. Enjoy the last day of 2011! Jx
