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!
