I seem to be a bit besotted with granny squares of 5 rounds. They don't have to be multicoloured, but it helps. This little video is part of the story of this blanket. (If the above doesn't work the link is here) So, 12 squares in memory of 120 blankets. I wonder where they are… Continue reading Back with more grannies.
Well, we survived the heat, but how have you fared with the rain? No floods here, but around the country family members have experienced 'puddles' of various depths. It's been scary. Stay safe wherever you are. I have another short video for you this week with more details below. The video will give you much… Continue reading Catching up

The above squares are for… Continue reading Pastels? Hmm…

I used them to make some squares for #365crochetsquares2019 Working out from the centre the colours are: Cornish Blue, Powder Pink, Spearmint and Toy. They certainly fit well into the range, and… Continue reading Pastels
It doesn't do any harm to look back. One of the largest crochet projects I undertook was this. It was a blanket of enormous proportions for someone special.
