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 :-)

We've had some gorgeous blankets donated for this project-they've been a joy to receive!  I'm so impressed by the skills and talents of people and by the generosity.

Joyce, from the SIBOL ravelry group, donated a blanket early on-and this week, I received another stunning blanket from her.  She's used a heart pattern throughout that gives such a lovely textured effect.






This is absolutely beautiful Joyce, thank you so much xxx



My friend Lisa has two little ones and she has very kindly donated a blanket that was made for her when her little ones were babies.  It's a gorgeous circular blanket that will definitely bring comfort to a grieving family.



She also has been hard at work with her mum making some squares and blankets for us as well!





There are some pink squares as well that I can't use for this project but I'll keep them aside with some of the other squares I've received that I can't use here for another blanket.







We met up on Wednesday night for another crochet along-this time to put together the squares for one of the child size blankets.  I brought down 80 squares in yellow and white with lots of spare yarn and we had a great time!  I showed some ladies how to use single crochet to attach the squares together into long strips of ten-I'll put these together a little later.









We had a lovely time again and met a couple more new faces!  We also talked about staying as a crochet group after the Cwtch Of Comfort project is finished, with the plan of regularly making donation pieces for charities close to our hearts.
