Work in Progress Wednesday……November edition!

Can’t believe it’s already nearly the end of the month! December is only 7 days away! You know what that means! Christmas is just around the corner!

Every year I tell myself the same thing I will start early with my Christmas shopping get it done well before Christmas Eve. Then I laugh really because who am I kidding as if that will ever happen!

This year I am kind of ahead of myself. I have started making cute little crochet baskets to put gifts in. My friends and family can reuse the baskets for any purpose and hopefully there will be less paper waste!

This pattern I love as it’s a contrast in colour and you can make the basket any size. Just change the hook size or add or minus rows.

I have a gorgeous fabric I am lining the basket with too!

Can’t wait to show you all the finished product!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day! Thank you for reading my posts!

Work in progress Wednesday 11 August 2021

Is it just me or is this year flying by!

With Covid raging around the world it’s an anxious and stressful time for everyone. I hope you are able to keep safe wherever you are.

The one thing that keeps me sane during lockdown times is crochet. I get so lost in selecting yarns and patterns and counting stitches my mind doesn’t get a chance to wander and think of all the sadness in the world right now.

At the moment I am working on some blankets and baby accessories. I will have some items ready soon for a gift pack. I just got the boxes in today. I will show the preview on Friday.

Baby booties available soon in my Etsy shop

Above are a cute pair of baby booties. I still have to finish them but I love the colour and simplicity of the design.

Continuous granny square

August 15 is granny square day. I love to crochet continuous granny square blankets. They remind me of days of old. A beautiful traditional design that will last for decades to come. I am nearly finished the blanket. I am not sure of the name of this Caron cake but I love the blue and mint and white combination!

Stacks of blankets

These are some blankets I crocheted. Some from patterns and some my own ideas. They are in various stages from completed to just needing a boarder to needing just a few squares to complete.

I love the variety of colours and the warmth they radiate!

What are some of your favourite go to projects to unwind! Comment below!

Thank you so much for reading my blog. Take care and stay safe.

My week so far…..

This week has passed by in such a blur! Don’t know where May went but here we are the first week in June.

On the bright side I did manage to do some crochet work. Below are photos with some of the projects I worked on this week.

Project 1: The Aster Chunky Crochet Rug – Pattern by Stitchedupcraft. You can find Kylie from Stitchedupcraft on Instagram. She is a very talented designer and her patterns are so easy to follow and look amazing when finished. The great think about her patterns are that you can customise them to suit your style and colour preferences. There is so much room to add your creative flair to them. This is the 3rd pattern I have made from Kylie’s designs. I have a couple more lined up which I will feature when I finish them.

The second lot of work is from the Art of Crochet series. These squares are from series 2. I have worked on both series 1 and 2 but I have to say the style of the squares and colours used on series too are amazing. Hoping to finish this by the end of the year. I am half way through now.

Well thank you for reading if you got this far. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. I will post updates of my work as I go along.
