Crochet Coral

We were lucky enough to be able to see this amazing crochet coral reef during a visit to Manchester Museum.  Its part of Coral Something Rich and Strange.  I left wanting to make my own but I am not sure my tiny terraced house would have space for a coral reef.  I have found some links in case anyone else feels inspired.  Unfortunately I have been too busy to make any yet but if you do please share your pictures as I would love to see how they come out! Patterns here and here, some more photos and ideas here.

Den Making

A lovely fresh wintery morning was spent building and playing in dens.  I loved dens as a child and made many in my garden.  Our garden is so small that the children's den making has to occur out and about!
