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

I decided on this partly as a change, but also to make a blanket that is a different shape. These are the… Continue reading Temperature blanket – the beginning
An email and a comment yesterday have prompted this post. The questions were similar in that they wanted the name of the block. In truth, I have no idea. I didn't follow a pattern but just played around with a conventional granny square, and this was the result. You must bear in mind that I… Continue reading Stashbusting Stone, the block!
