About me...
I'm a mum of two young girls, a wife, a daughter, a friend, and I'm a little bit crafty. I work outside the home two days per week and spend the rest of the time doing home and family related stuff as well as sewing, quilting, crochet, blogging and reading. My mum taught me to sew on her machine when I was in primary school and I've been sewing ever since.

About my square...
I became addicted to crochet when I was pregnant with my second daughter (she's now two years old) and have constantly been challenging myself to try new things and develop my crochet skills. My square is five crocheted motifs, with a few embroidered lazy daisies and french knots thrown in for good measure. The motifs are crocheted in cotton thread.
The pattern for the central motif is the Petite Pineapple Doily and the four little motifs are from the Island Necklace by Robyn Chachula (published in /Interweave Crochet, Summer 2009/). The embroidery is done in three strands of embroidery floss.

The square is a little like me - mostly orderly and symmetrical with a teeny bit of wonkiness and improvisation thrown in.

I keep trying to crochet, but am mostly unsuccessful. Yours is simply beautiful - the entire square is just lovely.
