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 :-)

Summer Solstice

I've missed Myf terribly this weekend-it's the first time EVER she hasn't been with me the morning of her birthday and it was so hard yesterday.  I did go to Cardiff to pick her up for a few hours (her dad and grandmother were quite resistant and needed reminding that I've ALWAYS let her dad come up to spend time with Myf on her birthday, no matter who's day or weekend it is!) so I took her for a nice lunch with a couple of presents.  I spent the evening celebrating the Solstice with friends-lots of laughter, good food and great company!
She's just got home now and has had a great time opening presents (I have taken loads of photos of her happy face)

She asked me to make her a rainbow ripple blanket as she loved the last one I made so I managed to finish it the night before she went to her dad's (and I finally found my other camera!)  I used the amazing Attic24's ripple pattern and the first round of the border she describes here and then I used rainbow colours in alternating spike stitches for the rest of the border.

Happy Birthday darling girl.  I love you!
