Introducing June

But just a glimpse  I’m not impressed with the camera coluthough! That outer circle is GREEN! It looks grey to me     But… after adding another round … postaday, summer, July, 2017, photography,  On we go … I wonder what will be next?

Nearly there!

I’m so pleased to be able to say that the Spirit of May is almost done! All blocks are finished – and LOOK! It’s a bad photo – taken late last evening – not just finished BUT JOINED! Now it’s waiting for a simple border. (and a few ends, too). It won’t take long now…

This is fun

It’s surprising what a random choice of colours will produce. The Spirit blankets are all based around the daily temperatures of each month, and in previous months their position has been determined by Theo ‘appearance’. This month I’ve chosen a different way to work. I won’t give you too many details at the moment, but…

I did it!

Yes, April was finished last Thursday evening. Phew! Now I can get on with May, which is a little more colourful.  I have a few things on the back burner which I’ll share with you over the next weeks but one thing is for certain – I won’t be starting July until June is finished…

Flaming June!

To say that it’s been ‘warm’ here is a bit of an understatement! According to the thermometer the garden temperature is currently 30 deg C. The days have been sunny and warm – each day fielding glorious blue skies and no rain in evidence at all. If the heat continues we will probably be under…

Do not read this post without sunglasses

You may remember that I ran out of Parma Violet, well today I’ve managed to locate some – so I’ll soon be back on track. In the meantime I’ve pressed on with both the Spirit and Temperature blankets. The first 15 days of April were certainly colourful! I didn’t expect that bright splash of Yellow,…

I seem to be stuck on blocks!

Do you know that feeling….. You just want to get started on a blanket! My fingers are itching!! I have the yarn, but I’m still waiting for the final instructions. The sex of the baby will be revealed very soon – and that will determine whether pink or blue is the added colour! I must…

Play with a purpose – The Posy Square

All you need is a ball of yarn and a hook! I’ve been playing around with a few odd balls of scrap yarn. Some were so small they really qualified as ‘lengths’ rather than ‘balls’. However, the object was to make a circle in a squaare – as easily as possible! Now I don’t  expect…

Spirit of Catch-Up

  Progress on The Spirit of February is slow. It will certainly take a few more weeks to complete as I work on other projects. Here are the centres of the last 12. This month is much more muted than the last two. It will be interesting to see the final result – only a…

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…
