Latest Projects

I made a small quilt for a friend who left work last week. 

I'm sure someone gave me the fabric which I used for this ... Ann?

Last December I made two blankets for my nieces using the Spice of Life pattern.

Both used the same colour yarn but placed differently.

Aubrey decided she wanted a single bed size blanket so I have started the Seaside Ripple
Its not as wonky as it looks!

I have wanted to challenge myself with crochet, it can get a bit samey, so hows this for a challenge ..Mandala Madness

There are so many different types of stitches, I'm finding the pattern difficult to follow so am relying on the video so I can understand it better. 
I just hope no-one ever counts the stitches, 
I think I have the right amount and then poof I don't anymore and I have no idea what I've done. However, crochet blankets are quite forgiving.


  1. Very nice quilt! The crocheted blankets and doily are lovely. I used to do quite a bit of crochet, but switched to knitting. Crocheting seemed to irritate my carpel tunnel problem, but knitting is fine if I don't do it too long. Good to see what you are doing these days!

  2. That's a pretty little quilt; I'm sure your friend will love it. Your crochet is very nice too. I'd say you've chosen a real challenge in that last project! I don't crochet, but I could never do that! It is very pretty! ---"Love"

  3. Lovely, lovely projects! The crochet Manadala is a amazing.
