Following on from my antics with the tea-set last week, the toy theme continued.
I then had a morning off from crochet to do a little card making - amazing what a birthday deadline can make you do. My lovely husband got me a new stamp at Christmas, it just says 'best wishes' several times, small, in a line, that inspired these cards:
Then back to the crochet I went, having a go at little roses for the first time, I used this free pattern
I have two projects on the go for my children at the moment. The first is for my daughter who has a birthday at the end of March. I thought she might like a big bag for overnight stays with friends. At the moment she tends to just use one of my jute shopping bags. Here it is so far
eco cotton that I found on ebay (and then discovered it is even cheaper to buy direct from their shop). It is no where near as nice quality as the Debbie Bliss that I like to use but it is going to serve it's purpose and be economical as well! It also comes in a great variety of colours.
The other project is for my son, we are going to redecorate his bedroom (prompted by a mouldy blind and friends coming to stay I have to confess). I love doing Granny Hexagons (hex's) and so decided to do some giant ones to make a blanket for him. These were the first two rounds.
can you see my puppy dog sneaking into this picture - she obviously is wondering why I am not taking her photo! Unfortunately I have run out of the 'canvas' coloured yarn, so will have to continue leaving a small number out to catch up with. I know some people really don't enjoy the repetition of grannies but I love it - as you can see! I am hoping to join them all together with the same red as the new blind, I still have a little way to go though before I will be ready to do that.
Have a good week, happy crafting x.
