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.
Remember my last post? I mentioned that I don't often 'do' pastels! This was greeted with much hilarity by one close friend who pointed to a pile of throws and blankets in similar colours to the above! I was forced into defence - and here it is for you too.

I currently have 4 secrets under wraps, but there's no harm in me showing you the odd glimpse. Is there? I adore working in colour. Planning colour… Continue reading It’s a secret!
Once a year there is an online challenge to make something each day for 100 days. This year it began on April 3, and is due to end early next month. I have joined in for a number of years because I actually work in elements of 100 as a personal challenge during the whole… Continue reading On the way to 100
