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....



  1. Lovely photos of your projects. Love the pastel theme. Makes everything look so pretty.

  2. Hi Marianne, Hope you are well. Loving all your projects. i have a few on the go at the moment too. I am waiting for some garden weather to sit and relax on my knitted shawl. Jo x

  3. Pastels and crochet - a match made in Heaven it seems! Lovely lovely projects Marianne and I completely understand the blanket making obsession :o) Have a lovely weekend xx

  4. I love those colours. I was in an antiques/junk shop at the weekend and there was a cupboard that someone had repainted with similar colours. Every drawer was a different colour. It would have been perfect for my spare room, but our car was a long way from the shop so we didn't buy it. I have been thinking, though, of buying an old cupboard and repainting it myself.

  5. Such great projects, I love the calmness of the beautiful pastel choices. The little shoes were adorable, a great make.

  6. I love the colors you put together and your skill with the hook is enviable!

  7. These colors look great together! Someday I will use such colors too but at the moment my stash is full of "strong" colors!

    Take care
