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 :-)

Another fantastic evening with the ladies!

Yesterday was fabulous!  We had an amazing turnout for the crochet along-most of the ladies who came last time came again and we had some new faces as well!  We had a great time chatting away, talking about the cause, swapping crafting stories and it's been wonderful for me to make friends of a like mind :-D

Two ladies have made a blanket each already!  Bonnie has made this gorgeous piece in a lovely chunky yarn.

Claire has made this fantastic blanket-it is her very first one!  She's done a brilliant job with it :-)  Well done sweetie!

These two gorgeous squares were sent in all the way from the Netherlands by Fiona from the SIBOL ravelry group-thank you darling, they are wonderful!

By the end of the evening I brought home a lovely bundle of squares :-)

Great work ladies!

This morning, I bumped into Lisa-she came to the last crochet along but was working last night so she handed me these lovely three squares today!  Great work Lisa!

This is the pile so far-

143 so far!

Would you like to get involved? 

Here's what it's all about-

'Cwtch of Comfort' requests blankets to donate towards bereavement boxes for the '2Wish Upon A Star' charity that supports families suffering the loss of a child.  I have been inspired by the amazing SIBOL project to ask people to send me squares as many find the thought of making a whole blanket a tad overwhelming!  So with your help, I'm hoping to have a whole big pile of squares to work with by the end of this month.  Could you help?

Here's what I need you to do:

Make a square!
It can be either knitted or crocheted
It must be approx 6" (knitted can be a little bit smaller)
Pale pastel gender neutral colours or White only please
Acrylic yarn

Email me at amberspider@googlemail.com and I'll send you my address :-)

The deadline for squares is the end of May 2015-I'd really like to have lots and lots of squares to put together and any help would be so appreciated.  Even a share on your blog would be a massive help!
