Welcome, it is lovely of you to drop by! On Sunday I went away on a short "jaunt", a little break with my mum and a friend, a little "girl" time away - it was unexpected and very welcome - we headed to Stratford-upon-Avon, a really pretty town famous for its William Shakespeare connections.
We wandered around the riverside and looked at the canal boats and I would love this fountain in my garden!
We ventured into town to find scrummy places to eat
yes it was a short "happy jaunt"
I got back yesterday, so this morning I dashed out to get my copy of "Inside Crochet" to see the article about SIBOL , how exciting, there they were lovely pictures of Sue's blankets! Check out the SIBOL blog for themes for up and coming blankets - its a brilliant cause and Sue is making a fantastic success of it all!
After my last post I where I couldn't decide which projects to start next - I made a decision to try and use up my currrent stash
I decided to use these to join in with Lucy's hook along granny stripe blanket over in the We Love Lucy group on Ravelry
I am already "hooked" on it and loving the granny stripeyness! The only slight downside I can see, is that I wont be able to cart it around with me as it gets bigger - at least with squares and motifs you can do a few and add them on if you see what I mean. I am quite excited to see how this turns out - its going to be a holiday blanket for our folding camper.
As I needed a "little" something to do whilst on the "short jaunt" I sorted out my leftover cotton and started on this
I am hoping to make this into a beachy type bag, however it is eating more cotton than I thought so may have to improvise and make it into something else! The joy of crochet - nothing is set in stone is it!
Thank you to the lovely Louise for mentioning my "join-as-you-go" tutorial on her lovely blog.
Great to catch up with you all!
