Rainbowitis – all done!

I love working with colour, so this project has been very satisfying. It took just a little over a month, but I could have finished more quickly if I hadn’t had other projects to keep me occupied too. I used Stylecraft Special DK – as I’ve told you before, it’s the only yarn I can…

Working with rainbows

There’s nothing like a rainbow to cheer, so I have really enjoyed working on this project. It could have been finished last month, but other things got in the way. Last night, however, the blanket was finished – except for the border. This morning, in daylight, I’ve chosen the colours for this, so it should…

Another progress report 

When I need a colour fix I work on this. Hopefully it will be finished by the end of next week Save

Sssshhhh! Can you keep a secret?

I currently have two projects on the go. I told you about one last time, but today I’m sharing a secret. I’ve started a new project which is being produced strictly under cover! I’m grabbing moments when a certain someone is otherwise engaged – and I know that that someone has no idea about this…

And we are off again! 

The start of another project is always exciting. Underneath the crochet you can see some of the hand dyed threads I’ll be offering for sale this weekend. Packaging takes a lot of time- there won’t be much blanket progress for a day or two. Did you know I am a dyer? I’ve been creating collections…

Sixty Million Trebles update. 

A quick update of the blanket I’m making for the above charity project. It’s been difficult to photograph as the days have been rather dark. The picture isn’t a true representation of colours – maybe my computer needs readjusting! I’m over half way. It was meant to be a slow blanket – but I’ve enjoyed…

Charity update 

I’m just back from a lovely but exhausting weekend. We stayed with our young grandchildren while their parents were away for a few days. We love them to bits – and had great fun! However, a nine and a six year old show boundless energy. Cartwheels, swingball, cricket and dancing gave continual ‘entertainment’, and a…

And I’m off again!

Just disappearing for the weekend this time. I’m off to work with a friend using fabric, threads and, of course, yarn! We will also be working on her new website.  I’m taking some of my hand dyed fabrics and threads, and also some crochet. This will come back finished  and I will also be working…

Ups and downs

Life really has a habit of keeping one on their toes. It’s easy to be seduced into thinking that all is fine, and then to be shocked to find that it isn’t. Keeping on an even keel when things are not going to ‘plan’ isn’t easy, but thanks to my faith in the Lord Jesus…

Packages in the post

It’s always good to receive packages in the post, isn’t it? Well, I’ve had two lovely ones this week. I indulged myself! When I was a child I would often stay with my grandmother in Northumberland. It was she who taught me to crochet umpteen years ago. Her home was full of functional crocheted objects…

Will you crochet along with me?

Sadly I have had to shelve this for the time being…. See this post.   I’ve hinted at it on Instagram, and I think I mentioned it here. I also mentioned it in the Ravelry Group, and now I’m going to make it official! Yes, I am going to host a Crochetalong! It will be…

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…
