Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my crafty skills :-)

Here we go!

First post everyone!  Nothing exciting though-I tend to pour out far too much rubbish in blogs so I'll try to keep this strictly crafty........
I've only recently started up crochet and I'm mostly on blankets-but I really enjoy playing around with colour combinations and figuring out how to get the results I want with the humble granny square :-)  I also love making crystal pendants especially as gifts for friends and family.  I don't have a huge amount of crafty me time but maybe I'll get more disciplined in real life and make the time!
Anyway, here's a few pics of the TARDIS blanket I made for my daughter's 8th birthday.  There's no pattern as I made it up but it's 198 squares (each one 5 around) and is massive!




The TARDIS toy Myf is cuddling is the amazing one loopy_jess made me for Christmas :-)  See where I got the idea from?
