All about crochet and weather

Here in the southern tip of Africa weather is always on our minds - we love sunny African days, but hate the drought. We wish the rain away and then pray for rain...

Today it is a bit dreary and to cheer us all up I am showing some happy weather...

This is the start of my little sunshine. 


Then the rays were added. The rays were all individually crocheted and then attached one by one to the happy sun.

Next came a little happy cloud...

And then a little rainbow.The rainbow was done twice, then sewn together and stuffed lightly.

Then of course we desperately needed some rain... And what a cute little drop he is!

Finally they were all done... The sun, the cloud, the rainbow and the little raindrop.

Now I just need to add some embroidery thread to a hoop and the mobile is finished! I think this is such a happy little project for a baby room and a perfect gift for a baby shower.

If you would like to try this pattern yourself - I found it in the Crochet Today magazine May/June 2010. I did tweak it a little so it's not exactly the same as the pattern.

Off to finish my next project...
