Bloomin' Crochet-A-Long


Hello! And apologies for the lateness of this weeks CAL post...I have been working the past two days and am only just getting a chance to do a little blogging.

To be honest, I haven't had a lot of time for crochet or any crafting this week as I was working all weekend too and unfortunately, the couple of days off I had were mainly filled with household chores!

Anyway...I am still making my appliqué blanket which I talked about here. The applique part is now finished and I have been adding a pretty little crochet border using some nice soft green cotton DK my lovely mum gave me. It was so very nearly finished....but I ran out of yarn! I will have to purchase some more really soon because my Miss M is keen for me to finish this little project as she has her eye on it!


What crochet have you been working on this week? As always, just leave a little note in the comments if you would like me to add a link to your post here.

  12. Very pretty edging, no wonder your little one has her eye on it! Hope you find the yarn quickly and finish this lovely blanket! Enjoy the weekend, hope you get a little more time! Chrissie xxx

  13. So that's why you were collecting pictures of edging on Pinterest! I'm really into pink and green combinations at the moment so I love your choices. x

  14. Hello Lovely Marianne I love the colours of your work and cannot wait to see it all together. After finishing the hot water bottle cover I am keen to start something new soon - however work keeps getting in the way! I am thinking of a blanket but not sure my crochet is up to this yet. Have a lovely weekend Marianne and try and have some rest if you can. Big hug Marianne, lots of love

  15. I love that edging - I really need to learn how to do something like it.
    This is me if anyone wants to take a look at whats on my hook this week. :)

  16. No crochet for me either. My weeks sounds like yours! The crochet edge to your pillow looks lovely!

    Happy weekend!

  22. It sounds like you've been super busy. I hope this weekend at work is kind to you. I love what you've done with the edging of this blanket it is going to look lively finished. So annoying when we run out if yarn. Sending much love xxx

  23. It's so pretty! I love crochet edgings. I really love the color you're using. I'm crocheting some flowery squares lately, but slowly. I'm trying to stop rushing my projects and savor them more.

  24. I just love the colour of that edging. I added a crochet edge to some towels last year and it held up remarkably well, all things considered. x
