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 :-)

Happy Saturday everyone!

Finally managed to get some time to take a few more photos (although the weather is pretty bad)-I'm pretty tired from work this week but Myf and I are going to see 'Frozen' later today so I'm drinking plenty of coffee and trying to be proactive!

No blanket of mine would be complete without the amazing squares from this blog here.  DebiY has loads of squares that she's designed that she very kindly shares for free and her instructions are really easy to follow.  I absolutely love her blog and her patterns-I first came across her blog when I was trying out new motifs for the Blanket of Fours blanket for my sister Jess and I've followed her ever since :-)

(I've had to amend the squares slightly to get the sizes I wanted)

I've done a couple of other special squares

And a few more Granny squares :-)

Nearly there :-D

How is your weekend going?  I hope you're all staying nice and warm!

Total number of squares to make-126 (63/63)
Brown edged granny squares-47 made.  16 to go!
Special Square Motifs-32 made.  31 to go!

Total number of square made so far-79 made.  47 to go!


  1. You're such a sweetie - thank you for the compliment. I'm so happy that you enjoy my blog. Your squares are looking great. :)

    1. I recommend your blog to everyone dear, I think you're brilliant :-)

  2. Lovely squares. Hard to pick a favorite.


    1. Aw thanks sweetie, I usually go for more colour combos but sticking to a specific palette means it's hard not to repeat myself! (I like each square to be individual) Can't wait to see how it looks when I'm putting it together :-)


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!
