Hello again!

It has been a while between posts for me (again), but I'm glad to be back!

Before I say anything else, I want to say hello and welcome to all the new followers who have come to visit in February and March. One of the reasons I started this blog was to try and feel part of a crafting community. 

I don't know many people who have the same level of crochet and knitting obsession that I do, so I really wanted to try and connect with some other like minded people, and there is such an active craft community online that I thought a blog would be a good way to do that.

 Its so great to now have people regularly visiting this blog, and leaving such kind comments. I'm sorry if I don't always reply individually to each comment, its just due to general business rather than anything else. Please be assured that I do still read and value every comment, even if I don't reply.

 I have been beavering away on my blanket - a lot of progress has been made since my last post. I've spent most of the last 2 weeks doing the seaming on this, but I'm nearly there now!

The (brief) flashes of sunshine that have from time to time come through the window while I have been working on this blanket have really highlighted the stained glass effect I think.

Normally when working on a blanket like this, I would have a smaller project on the go simultaneously, so that I can have a little break from the blanket if I need to. However, since I started adding the black seaming to the blanket, I've just found it so absorbing and fun to work on that I haven't wanted to put it down!

I think this may be my favourite blanket yet! Hopefully I will finish it over the weekend, and then be able to share full completed snaps with you!



  1. Beautiful! It really does resemble stained glass, especially the purple and pinks. I LOVE it :)

  2. This is coming on beautifully - and a perfect thing to have on your lap in this weather! Jane x

  3. Hi! I absolutely love this rug! I am currently crocheting one that is similar in that it is hundreds of tiny granny squares that I am joining together, but I am struggling with joining them so it leaves a nice clean finish. I love how you have stitched these squares together and was wondering how you have done it? Grace :)


I love to read all your comments, so if you have a question to ask or just something to say, please leave me a message and I'll reply!
