This and that

Never say ‘Never’! I’ve been caught out before. Jan, if you are reading this please skip this next paragraph!  Scraps accumulate and there was one thing I always insisted I would never do! That was – turn them into a Granny Square! So how did this happen?  Well, there is a story behind it but…

It’s been a while..

Yes, I’ve been quiet. It was on doctor’s orders as I prepared for a heart procedure. It took longer than I hoped to stabilise meds but finally all was ok, apart from a last minute hitch, and earlier this week I was admitted to the hospital. I’m pleased to say That I am now home…

A disappointment

Published earlier on Creating something every day where it can be seen in its entirety. It serves me right. I tried to cut a corner! I need a crochet blanket quickly. It must be bright and cheerful, so, rather than spend time dyeing one I chose a bright and cheeerful combination that I have seen…

Catching up 

I thought I had already shown you progress on Ocean 9. How wrong could I be?  My memory is not as good as it was, obviously! It’s coming along nicely. About a month’s more work I think. Only able to work on it about an hour a day for a while.  I’m considering a C2C…

Back on dry land!

I am breaking a rule. I am usually very strict with myself and only work on one project at a time. It means I can focus fully and am always eager to finish because there is another project waiting. So, Ocean 9 is underway but I won’t be able to openly work on it over…

First colour sequence finished

I’ve decided to count these rows slightly differently. I have no idea if this will work – it will be too late to change by the time it is finished. Here’s the first colour repeat.   I think the colours will become more apparent in the next post. I’m also wondering if I dare take…

Ocean 9

A new commission – Ocean 9

Finished

Really pleased at the final result of this blanket. It’s been slow progress – but only due unexpected circumstances. It will be delivered next week. If you would like a similar one let me know – I’m taking orders.😉

Blogging from A-Z April Challenge

Apologies for the abrupt ending of this series. I had some really good ideas for the rest of the alphabet – but sadly health issues meant the challenge had to end. I’ll post the rest of the alphabet as separate posts during the forthcoming weeks. In the meantime – very slowly – I have been…
