About Me

My photo

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 :-)

My blanket! (photo heavy, sorry)

I finally finished my blanket yesterday-after staying up until 3.30am to get the border done as I refused to go to bed without it!  Myf was at her dad's so at least I could stay in bed a bit longer :-)  And it was totally worth it as my blanket is beautifully snug.
So, I have pictures to bore you with...
The concept is based around the elements-and the layout is inspired by a tarot spread a friend and I designed together a few years back called the 'Elemental Compass Spread'

I took this before I started stitching the squares together and as it turns out, this pic showed the layout better

 You can't really see the border but it's a shell stitch in dark, sparkly blue :-)
So that's done!  It's nice to have finally made myself something XD


  1. That is a stunning blanket and your tiny weird cuties are great too! A couple of Christmases ago, Jess made a Grim Reaper for Marcus and a "Miss Flower" (as I call her) Japanese doll which I love and hold pride of place either side of my mirror. I like to think that they show my pretty and my dark side! You can probably see them in some of my photos as my dressing table gets the best light for photos.

  2. I think I've seen them, so cute! I want a whole army of little amazons and ninjas and gladiators and grim reapers and robots and and and!

    (I'm working out rainbow colour combos for your family blanket so watch this space!)


I'm so happy when someone leaves me a comment and I read every one :-) Thank you for taking the time to comment on my little blog-I try to answer every comment where I can!
