Craft corner in every room

2019 will be the year I keep my blog up to date!

Life gets in the way but I promise I will try.

Thoroughly enjoying crafting at the moment and have just started my first Crochet Along, Sweet Pea courtesy of the wonderful Lucy Attic 24.

Is it just me or does everyone have a craft corner in every room?


It’s been a long time…crochet square bed throw

It really has been a long time since I posted my crochet projects. Now I am back and ready to display my latest creation which is a crochet square bed throw. I have adapted a pattern from Dottie Angel’s blog, it is a great pattern and the blanket grows quickly (always a relief). As you can see I have not added the crocheted doilies but there’s still time so watch this space.

Blissful afternoon sewing…

Taking advantage of a well earned day off, I have spent a blissful afternoon with Esmeralda.

She has been so forgiving of my stopping and starting, huffing and puffing.

Finally after a few false starts..let me present.. vintage skirts for my grand daughters…

 I have followed  the you tube video with just a few alterations e.g seams were made using a mock French seam.

The material used was Cath Kidston Rosali from the IKEA Wednesbury store.

Perfect Pinkiness

At last, I have finished my granddaughter’s blanket for her new big girl’s bed. I am very proud! The granny squares have been joined together using the ‘join as you go’ method. There are lots of great You Tube clips that illustrate this method. I love the different shades of pink that all compliment each other. I am now feeling inspired…pass my hook quick!
