About Me

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 :-)

Day 2...and a new book!

One of my new books arrived!  It's the crochet borders one and I admit to being a little sad that it wasn't the squares book as I really want to make a start on some new square motifs (and because of work, I won't be home for the mail until the weekend so I'll miss the delivery and have to reschedule) but this book does look gorgeous!



It's laid out with 150 new edgings for me to try out and I'm so looking forward to trying it out :-D

So a few more squares to show today.  I tend to start a big project with 'colour studies', squares that are predominantly one colour done in lots of shades.  As I go on, I do more colour combinations.


Total number of squares to make-126 (63/63)

Brown edged granny squares-8 made.  55 to go!
Special Square Motifs                            63 to go!

  1. There's nothing more exciting than a new yarny book! I do admire you for making a blanket using squares...I don't know if I'd have the patience to join them all at the end! Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope the oatcakes come out good! :) xx

  2. Hi Tina, thank you for your lovely comment! I'm looking forward to trying out those oatcakes out when I have some time :-)
    I LOVE making blankets out of squares-there's a method for 'joining as you go' that the amazing attic24 has shared which is definitely worth a look if you find the prospect of joining loads of squares together at the end to be a bit daunting

    I enjoy laying all the squares out when they're finished and moving them around so this method isn't for me :-)

    I can't wait to try out my new book-I fell in love with it at first sight, all those gorgeous colours!
