A little vision of happiness

Keeping me going today, gardening books, crochet & crisps. I have fifty odd little squares now. I'm not making the amount of squares the pattern suggested. It will be more a little cover for me rather than put on the bed.

In fact I can just picture Mikes face if I put a crochet throw on the bed. He will be in for a shock in a couple of months when I want the bedroom re decorated. It will be full of blankets & pretty things then!

Enjoy your day.

  1. Those squares are so tiny, you'd need loads for a blanket for the bed. Have you decided yet how you're going to join them together?

    1. It says in the book a double crochet seam, I might start doing it now. I have decided on 10 squares across which is plenty wide enough for what I want it for.

    1. Thank you, a bit brighter than I wanted but with the wool being a couple of pounds cheaper than the one suggested I can put up with that.

  6. It's going to be a pretty blanket. I crocheted a blanket for myself not so long ago, I re-taught myself to do granny squares, that's all I'm good at at the moment..lol

    1. That's all I can do at the moment granny squares. If I do a square of plain stitches it just doesn't look right. At least with a granny square you can keep going & end up with a blanket.

  7. I think it might take forever to make one of those for the bed. :) They look really pretty so far. I hope you're having a good day.

    1. Yes, a glass of wine would have topped it off nicely, as it was morning I had tea which was nearly as nice.

    1. Ah, The Sound of Music, I have lots of favourite things, so am I. I'm eager to start some other things now but I want to get this done first.

  10. Your squares are looking very pretty! Mike might not like the idea of a crochet throw on the bed, but I bet that he will be quite happy to snuggle under it on a cold evening! Hope that you are enjoying it. xx

    1. Thank you, you are correct I have caught him in the past with a crochet blanket on his feet. That one wasn't quite as girly though.

    1. Granny squares are quite easy to master, once you get the knack you can keep on going & thank you.

    1. I'm rather enjoying it, whiles the hours away until it is warmer enough to spend a few hours on the plot.

  13. I am too plotting to redecorate our bedroom, being the only female in a house of 6 plus 2 dogs I am feeling the need for pretty floral things and I currently have my eye on our bedroom! Jay will not be impressed however if I do it he probably won't notice anyway if I just do a little bit at a time x
