Current WIP

This month has passed really quickly. It’s been fun to share with you each day, and today’s topic will confirm that I am still working on the Raspberry Lobelia blanket! The rows are now getting shorter – but I think that it will take most if not all of April to finish it. I may…

Video

Is this a cheat? I have no means of making a video about crochet, so I’m including a link to the one that I have found most useful  for instructions for making a corner to corner blanket. There are other videos and instructions on the net too, and, of course, the technique can be used…

Where

Where do you crochet? I always sit in the same chair with my sample squares and current yarns at my side. I took the above picture this morning – and noticed something I didn’t want to see!! In a few more rows I will need Aster – but look – a rogue whisp or too…

Friends

There’s nothing like childhood friends Sometimes these friendships last a lifetime Sadly I lost my best friend of all earlier this year  My dear Mother, seen here with my first grandchild and her first great grandchild. She was 97 when she died so lived to see him grow big and strong. Who is your best…

Texture

Texture, to stimulate both the sense of touch and sight is very important to me. The gallery shows just a few of those that I live with each day…… there are hundreds more….! Posted for National Crochet Month

Joy

Tea Time

Tea time passes without recognition….. Coffee, however, is celebrated with peace and solitude 😉 (Posted late for National Crochet Month due to unforseen circumstances – more to follow….)

Weather

It’s March, and spring is here. To be honest – spring began in January. We have had bluebells flowering since then – bulbs were early, everything seemed out of ‘kilter’. Today is glorious. The sky is blue – as you can see from the above The second photo shows part of the view from my…

Current WIP

Half way! The turning point! This is a Corner to Corner crocheted blanket. Otherwise known as a C2C, you might like to come and join us in the Ravelry C2C group – the link is below and in the sidebar. Tonight the rows will begin to get shorter. I started it on 28th Feb, and…

Shawl

Images float past me of old ladies sitting with blankets over their knees while clutching shawls around their shoulders. Could this be the inspiration for this prompt? I hope not! Once again the prompt is for something I haven’t made. Chatting on Ravelry (see the link to the C2C group in the sidebar), however, I…
