If you’ve followed me for a while, or have had a little nose around my blog, you’ll have seen that I teach crochet as well as make and design things. I actually own and run a bespoke craft cabin in my back garden, where I’m lucky enough to be able to do what I absolutely… Read More The Makers’ Cabin bag
If you read my last post, you’d of seen we went to a local sunflower field as a trip in the school holidays, and I just had to come home and have a little play with some yarn.

It’s time to finally show you the blanket that I made at the end of last year. I’d made lots and lots of circles and changed them into squares which you can read all about in some previous posts I made.

Until I’ve finished what I have started! Yep – I think we’ve all said that at one time or another! But this is me writing to myself to try and resist the urge to pick up my hook, scissors and or material, and get creating! I’m itching to start designing something new, BUT, I must… Read More I really must not start anything else……….
So this has been a mission this blanket, to say the least, and this square was a real pain for a good few months of the summer. The project I found on Two Hearts Crochet , where she’s very kindly shared loads of free graphs, and has a Facebook page where lots of other people have shared… Read More The Harry Potter Blanket – Part 1
Finally a little bit of blue can be seen in the sky here in England.

The finished pieces are 2… Read More Crochet Squares and Diamonds
