The temperature blanket is progressing, but not as fast as I would have liked due to a variety of unavoidable circumstances. I've mentioned before how handy it is to be able to crochet alongside invalids' bedsides etc, but it really does help if you are prepared! The next square was easy, only two colours for… Continue reading Right but not quite.
Yes, this might be the first post of two today, but I may run out of time! Firstly, did you catch the recent post on Stashbusters Anonymous? You may like to read it, it might fill in a few gaps!

It was meant to be a slow blanket - but I've enjoyed… Continue reading Sixty Million Trebles 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… Continue reading Charity update
