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 :-)

Lots of photos...

I have a poorly daughter at the moment-she's been up and down with a nasty viral bug and has spent most of the morning being sick :-(  She's currently tucked up in bed and hopefully she'll be feeling better when she wakes up.

We spent some time this weekend laying out the squares for the Sleeping Forest Blanket-Myf has taken some photos for your enjoyment ;-)









I played around with the arrangement for the next day until it felt like the colours were flowing properly then I pile them up into groups of 14 (vertical strips) and used a little piece of wire to mark the end square so that I crochet the squares together in the order I want!


Over the last couple of days, I've been busy getting some of them crocheted in strips (I crochet the strips together as soon as I finish them) and so far, we have a four-strip wide blanket!



Doesn't it look beautiful already?  Only five more strips to do then it's on to the border!

    1. I love it! It is a lot of work but I'd do it all day, every day if I could :-)

  4. It's looking good. I like your idea of creating rows of squares and marking which one you'll start with. Working on one row at a time is a lot easier than working with a whole blanket - thanks for the tip. x

    1. Thank you darling :-) Putting a blanket together can be a bit daunting for me without dividing it up somehow x
