Just a super quick blog as it is quite late enough already! I have had the most frustrating evening trying to put my hand spun crochet mobile of the Solar System together for Weaving, Spinning and Dyeing Guilds exhibition tomorrow! Remind me not to leave things until the night before. This Solar System has been. . . a ball ache for want of a better phrase. I think it is finished, it is not too badly balanced but I have spent about six hours on it today! I was awake before six crocheting the rings of Saturn! Let's not talk about Uranus! It looks like someone has sat on it! It is a good job I am not a perfectionist. I will go to bed shortly mulling over how to display it tomorrow! Great idea. . . a mobile! Why do I not keep things bloomin simple? I have taken some pictures so I will share it with you as soon as I can. . . it erm has not turned out quite as I would have liked. It nearly tipped my Mother and I over the edge tonight. The planets kept dropping off and getting tangled. It took at least three hours longer than predicted to get nowhere. I bought it home from my parents at 10pm and have wrestled with it to get it finished. There better be somewhere to dangle it in the morning! The magazine pattern was very helpful. The advice for arranging the sun, moon, nine planets and a rocket said. . . 'To assemble look at the picture'. Well jee thanks a bundle. Look at the picture! I reckon it took five people a week to get it looking as it does in the picture! If I never see another crochet planet in all my born days it will be too soon I can tell ya! My advice for this pattern would be 'don't' just simply don't! Hope you are all set for a peaceful, frustration free weekend! I have really had enough crafty frustration for all of us.
