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 :-)

Repairing the TARDIS...

You may remember ages ago my very first post was about the blanket I made for Myf's eighth birthday.  I started on it only 2 days after learning how to successfully make a basic granny square but at the time, I hand stitched the squares together with a tapestry needle.  This unfortunately hasn't held together all that well so now that the three big blankets are done, I decided to spend some time doing some repair and rejuvenating on it!

I went over it row by row and crocheted over every gap with single crochet-I also looked at the outer edge and decided just having the border of squares made it look a bit uneven-so I used some of the stash (dark blue with a sparkly thread and some of Myf's favourite shade of blue) and crocheted around the outside to create another border.  It looks much happier and now we have a much better photo of it (the old piccy on the first post was taken with a naff camera phone and came out looking weird)



Now the TARDIS is ready for anything...even a Welsh winter!

With that all out of the way, I really must work out what's I'm going to do for Christmas...must admit, I'm a bit stumped!

  2. Thanks hun-it's lived almost non stop on Myf's bed since she got it (and makes a pretty amazing den too) and it's right up at the top of my favourite blankets list :-)

    I only have a couple of ideas for christmas-next year, I really must take a leaf out of yours and Thea's books and stop crafting through the year for Christmas!
