Updates–2 A Little Bit of Spring

By the week before Easter, I was beginning to think that spring would never come. So I decided to crochet a couple of mats in spring colours to cheer up my porch.

I bought some Robin DK in green yellow and lilac from our local market and searched for a suitable pattern. I found this one on Ravelry. I thought it looked just right in my spring colours.

I had seen a spiral mat on Pinterest that I liked The pattern was on Ravelry here,  but I did not want to pay for the pattern. So after looking at the pictures, I worked it out for myself. I did not make it into a square like the one on Pinterest,  I made a large circular mat in the same spring colours .

Add a bunch of tulips in a painted jug and I almost felt like spring was here!
