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 :-)

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hiya folks!  Hope everyone is having a jolly good time :-)

On Sunday evening, my friend Jem posted a photo on my Facebook of this:

with a plea that she really wanted me to try and make one for her...

My daughter needs to talk to her about the dangers of giving me ideas....


I stayed up until nearly 3am figuring it out and then the following day went round to her house-by the afternoon had finally produced this...



Look how chuffed she is!  She wasn't expecting it less than 24 hours later...

Given that I only had DK yarn to hand as well as not being able to find a larger hook so  had to use a 4mm one, it's pretty good!  Especially as I didn't have access to a computer so couldn't look at the original picture again.

I think I may make myself one next year and dress up as a gladiator for Halloween...
