Works in progress...


These squares are my first attempts at crochet. Last Saturday night I decided to teach myself and with a couple of phone calls to Mum and a couple of hours later I was finally able to decipher the crochet pattern which seemed like a foreign language to me at first. By Sunday night I was so addicted to it I wasn't even looking up to watch TV. Because I had to work full time hours this last week it was a great small project that I could take to work and do in my breaks. I find it really easy to just pick up and do a few stitches when I have just a few minutes. My youngest daughter wants it to be her blanket already so I might have to teach her to crochet as well. I'm using pure wool so its going to be a lovely warm soft blanket.


This is a little peak of some sewing I managed to get done after work last week. I have two more to complete and then I will show you the complete project.

Wishing everyone a great week!

Both looking lovely! I can see that blanket in my minds eye and love the patchworky feel of the hearts!

Way to go on the crochet, Catherine! It's great isn't it? I have been neglecting my African Flowers in favour of sewing recently, but I keep catching sight of the lovely bright wool out of the corner of my eye and just longing to get crocheting again! Your squares look great!

They are looking great crochet blocks! I tried to do some on the train home today but no go. There was way too many people on the train. Too squishy. We will both have to keep posting progress of our 'little' crochet projects.
