On the hook

I have lots of projects on the go at the what's new?! 

Unfortunately my previous round crocheted cushion met a sad end when lots of the stitching looked to have been unpicked by someone  Nobody has admitted to it though!  So I have started making the blooming flower cushion from the wonderful Attic24 blog (link in my sidebar). I can honestly say that I'm loving every single stitch. I'm using sort of ice cream colours which are my colours of choice at the moment. The yarn is mainly Stylecraft Special DK with some other oddments from my stash. 

I also have this hexagon blanket on the go which has a very similar colour scheme to the cushion above. Yip I really love these colours at the moment! This blanket is going to be for my daughter. The pattern is from the book Granny Squares by Susan Pinner which I'm sure I've said before, is an absolutely fantastic book and I've used lots of the patterns in my projects. 

My little basket has lots of bits of projects in it at the moment...two colourful cushion covers, a starburst blanket with only a few squares done and a colourful granny blanket. All projects which are easy to dip in and out of and just do a little bit here and there.

Lastly I have this little striped baby blanket which admittedly is almost finished. I just have the ends to sew in and a little embellishment to add. This blanket is made using rows of dc and I love the texture of it.

So lots of projects on the go! I find it impossible to stick to only one at a time. Maybe I have a short attention span?! I'm not sure but I just love having lots of projects to choose from depending on my mood. 

Do you have lots of WIPs on the go at the one time or do you finish each project before starting another?

Until next time...

All the pretty pastels

Hello!  Hope you are all well and have been enjoying lots of crafty time?!

I've been enjoying using lots of pretty pastel colours, peach, lilac, lemon, aqua and spring green with lots of white as well. I just love this combination of fresh and pretty. 

 I have a few new projects on the go...a granny blanket, a blanket for a baby boy and a pastel striped blanket. Do you notice a theme here?! Yes...I'm still completely obsessed with blanket making, especially baby blankets I just adore making these. They are small enough to be fairly quick and I can use all my favourite pastels so I definitely don't get bored when I'm making baby blankets.

The little collage above is of some of the projects I've been making over the past few months...I especially enjoyed making the bunting and the stool cover, both were really fun makes.

Well I'm off to do a little more on the project above...a pastel granny blanket, a nice relaxing make with all the pretty pastel colours ❤️.

Until next time....
