Isn't this granny square blanket absolutely WONDERFUL? No need to ask where I found it . . . It was definitely my lucky day though!
Above and below are close ups. The lady that made this was a superb craftswoman, with infinite patience too. There must be hundreds of these little squares in the blanket, and then when she's used the black wool to crochet it together, she put a fringe on three sides.
I have to say I am NOT in the same league. The skirt I unpicked is now being turned into a lap quilt, all summery colours. Bear with me, as I have been doing several other things craft-wise too, so it will be a while before it is finished . . .
Here is some recent inspiration. All of a sudden I got my crafting muse back and a couple of craft books I have picked up have had me champing at the bit to make everything in them, which is good in a way (if totally impractical!)
I have been trying to publish these photos for a couple of weeks now, but the computer has terminal constipation and only today have I finally had success . . .
I have been collecting all sorts of material in my travels, and gradually building up a better stash for patchwork again. Some I have actually bought, but much has come from car boot sales. Pure cotton frocks, unpicked, help the stash no end.
