Well I finally finished my pink 'we are friends again' blanket, although I had to crochet another 60 squares so that it was the right length which, of course, was no hardship. I used double-knitting yarn, a 3mm hook, 3 rounds of trebles and the final round I used a half treble (the pale pink) so that when the squares are sewn together the edging is the same height as the trebles - err if you see what I mean!
I worked out that if you use 5 different shades of pink (not including the edging colour) you can attain 60 different combinations (ha ha, such mind-blowing information).
So now its in my sewing/crafting room covering my rather scruffy old nursing chair, which is really comfy and ideal for the back problem.
So until I get round to doing a full upholstery jobbie on my lovely little chair, this will do nicely.
I don't know if its the drugs (painkillers) but, although not a very productive week in what I've made (mainly a mess) and attaining my First Class Honours Degree in Procrastination, I've designed my little head off this week and I am in 'bag' mode - more on that next week.
Before going, I would just like to show you these
are they not just lovely. I found these at hmsdesign on Folksy do pop over and have a look at all the wonderful flowers.
Also this, which is top of my wish list at the moment
Born, raised and still living in Kent, The Garden of England.
I'm a 50's something mum of two kids, 3 German Shepherd dogs and live with Mr Philistine (aka "but whats it for?"). I love, love, love to create: sewing, crochet, knitting (err, not very well though), paper mache, mosaics, paper crafting, painting, renovating old, unloved interesting objects, organic gardening, veggie growing and since 18th September, a very excited hen keeper.
Just in case you think we have palm trees in Kent, my photo was taken in Taba, Egypt - that's the Sinai Mountains in the background.
