More hooky playtime!!!

Woop!!!! I did it. I can't quite believe it but I really really did it. I made one of Lucy's hooky ornaments and she only put up the tutorial today! Mighty proud of meself I am. Just took an evening to make and assemble and I just LOVE it. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to get my Rico wool that I ordered, so on Friday I contacted Lisa from First for Yarns to see where it was. I ordered it in October!! Big delays, she said. Oh no! I got to have that yarn. So without even thinking anymore about it, I picked up a bit of Stylecraft and Hayfield Bonus (all I have left of my dwindling pile) and began a practice ornie. But lookie!! How good does it look? Well I think so ;-). Here are a couple of pictures and if you want the instructions to make one for yourself then head over to Lucy's blog.
