Final decision on the Mini Triangle Rhombus bag.
 one complete Rhombus in mini triangles and two with  mini rhombus border
first triangle is ch2,
ROW 1: sc into 2nd ch from hook.turn. (2sts)
ROW2: ch1, 2sc in st, turn, (3sts)
ROW 3: ch1, turn, sc in first st, 2sc in next st. (4sts)
ROW 4: ch1, sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in last st, turn. (5sts)
ROW5: ch1, sc in every st to last st, 2sc in last st, turn (6sts)
ROW 6: ch1, sc in every st, 2sc in last st, turn (7sts)
repeat until you have 9sts across triangle or the triangle size you want.
finish with 9sts = 2.5" 6.5cm equilateral triangle
2strands of DK and a 5mm hook
following triangles are made in reverse 9sc into one side of the first triangle and a decrease on each row until one st left pull yarn through. Weave in ends.

New Ikea Wardrobe....

When we moved to this house, it has no attic, and the only room with a wardrobe was ours...
This single bedroom was starting to turn into a storage room with no style!!
It's been re-arranged, tidied and a big new wardrobe added....
Its taken 3 years to sort out the upstairs storage......I now have a lovely big wardrobe in the single bedroom to fill up.
 We decide a relatively cheap Ikea wardrobe was best as it was just for storage in a room no one ever sleeps in... a pretty room but no grand children as yet to fill up the space.
So I will be using it as extra storage for clothes, out of season or that I plan to get back into one day and just can't part

Lot of red and white accessories I made a couple of Christmases back...
Decorated with the future in mind...may be a grand daughter?...but no chance as yet.
The sun is shining right now but a hurracaine is forecast later....
Good Luck to everyone who might get a visit.

Rain held off long enough to finish the screening....

Didn't think we would get it finished, but the rain held off long enough for us to finish the screen we started last weekend.
It's the beginning of a car port Phil has wanted for Noo Noo.

 Made myself a Rhombus bag on a day off work....
 one flower on each side was enough....
each shape is a different colour.
Have a great weekend everyone....
I have a couple of days off over the weekend, then 6 designs to complete for the yarn company
