About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Crochet Blanket / Shawl

Good Morning All
                   These are some new shaped beads  that I got this week so if 
you would like to buy any, the link is  HERE.
This is a crochet blanket or shawl I have crocheted in browns and beiges, it is about 36" square, the wool is so soft, it is lovely.  The reason I made it in browns and beiges is because Lorien, when Hollie was born, wanted her room and bedding in beiges.  I thought they may have announced another on the way by now !!!!!  They only moved into their first house last year, so I do understand that they have alot to do there before having another baby.

I found the pattern HERE and it is so easy if you can do basic crochet stitches.
I like it because you do not have to do a great big long row of chain stitches, you start off from one corner and then increase until you get to the size you want, then you start to decrease.

Beautiful Wendy. Its an unusual colour for a baby blanket but it will go so well with the beige room.

Have a good Sunday. The workmen have finally finished in the house so theres a LOT of cleaning up to do today.

I have not done any Crochet for a while, must get it out and on the go again.

Both offerings are lovely Your pins are amazing I (when pennies allow) will be popping over and although you've used unusual colours for the blanket it sounds like it'll match perfectly AND be far more praction than white, pink or blue
