Hooked On Quilted Crochet

I am definitely hooked on this book! Hooked On Quilted Crochet had caught my eye a few months ago. When I got the opportunity to get a copy to review I jumped at it. I would have to say that it has lived up to my expectations. As the name very cleverly suggests, this book… Continue reading Hooked On Quilted Crochet

Lovie Blankets

Before I tell you about my Lovie Blankets,  I believe an apology is in order. Life seems to have become rather muddly and busy over the last few weeks and I have got very behind with my posts. I have completed a number of projects, and remembered to take photos of them before parting with… Continue reading Lovie Blankets

I’ve Fallen A Bit Behind

I’m afraid I’ve fallen a bit behind with my website lately. I’m not quite sure where February went, but we are now into the second week of March! During February I had several projects on the go which I have now finished. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos of any of them and they have… Continue reading I’ve Fallen A Bit Behind

Christmas Knitting Ideas

The last post in my Christmas series is Christmas knitting ideas. I have rediscovered a wonderful pattern book on my shelf called “Jean Greenhowe’s Christmas Special”. All the photos I have taken for this post are of pictures in this book. It is a Sirdar book (number 236). I am not usually overly keen on… Continue reading Christmas Knitting Ideas

Are You On Track For Christmas?

Wow! October is nearly gone already! I don’t know whether it’s because I’m getting older (I turned 60 recently) or whether it’s just a sign of our society today, but the years seem to go by so quickly now. Ideally I should have started on Christmas projects in early September, or at least have some… Continue reading Are You On Track For Christmas?

Birthday Cushions Completed!

I am pleased to report that both the birthday cushions have been completed. (See “Two Extremes of Cross Stitch”.) This is the first time I have used this kind of kit and I have found it very enjoyable and satisfying. The coarse canvas and the printed design have made the projects easy to follow and… Continue reading Birthday Cushions Completed!

Two Extremes of Cross Stitch

I currently have two main cross stitch projects on the go, not counting a couple that have been sitting around for a while. These projects are both intended as birthday presents for grandchildren, and they represent two extremes of cross stitch. The one I am making the fastest progress with is a kit set cushion… Continue reading Two Extremes of Cross Stitch
