I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, considering this is my first attempt at an "in the hoop" project and I've only tried applique a couple of times too. When it came to the back, I couldn't resist dusting off my box of rubber stamps. I knew I had a postage stamp one somewhere and when I found "You mean the world to me", I just had to use it. I can see another addiction coming on!

Whilst my laptop has been out of action I have had the chance to get back into crochet. I hadn't done any in years and there is plenty of room for improvement but I was pretty chuffed with how this little crown hat turn out for my daughter. She really likes the gem stones on it. It's prompted me to have a go at a waistcoat for myself and I've just won a vintage tank top pattern on ebay so thats another project to add to the list.
