I am joining in with the Stycraft yarns Lilypond crochet along

I have not made much progress, I actually want it to rain so I can stay inside and crochet! How silly is that? Are you joining in with this one?

 I saw the display for this in my local fabric shop. I stopped to take a peek...

The crochet along is Stylecraft's first. Launched in collaboration with Jane Crowfoot, a crochet designer I much admire for her intricate designs. I also fell in love with the colours; greens, teal and aqua. It is called Lilypond and it is spread over 4 months, there will be 8 fortnightly instalments.
Number 5 is due very anticipation is mounting!

As you can see I have only completed 1/4 of part 1, 2 and 3. I have a long way to go...

Let me know if you are joining in and we can follow each others there a badge I wonder?
Here is the link if you are interested in joining stylecrafts Lilypond crochet along.

Here then is a list of things I plan to sew...

What a difference a duvet cover makes...our bedroom:

The story behind the story:

I rarely write about or photograph our bedroom, simply because it is an undecorated mess!
From previous experience with our other houses, I have noted our bedroom is always the last to be decorated. The first is always the kids room with the second usually being the Kitchen or lounge closely followed by the spare rooms. Is it the same in your house? Here are some before pics...
