Wishing you all a happy July, especially those of you who celebrated the 4th.
We have been real busy this month, we had another little holiday in Norfolk with my disabled mum, she really enjoyed it, we did lots of walking (mum in her wheelchair) and the weather was glorious and now it’s back to work.
I have added a new store on my site, there was a lot to set up but I have finally finished it. At the moment there are only 3 lovely crocheted items in store, but I will be adding lots more very soon.
Here is my favorite blanket, I just love the colors and there is a cute bow in each corner.
The size of the blanket measures 27″ x 27″ and it is lovely and soft, ideal for baby or a doll.
I am currently crocheting a lovey blanket and so far have made the head and I’m now working the ears.
My first intentions were to make a bear lovey blanket, but when I finished the head I changed my mind and decided to turn it into a doggy, I have this real cute image in my mind, hope it comes out like I want it to.
Here is the head, I started the cast on circle at the front of the nose then increased out to make the face and head, looks really weird at this plain stage.
Here are the ears, I wanted them to be long and floppy compared to the size of the head.
I started at the bottom end of the ear and worked in a circle, when I reached the length I wanted I flattened the ear then sewed along the top, I like how they have turned out.
I will blog the next stage so you can see my little project coming together.
I do find crocheting so very relaxing that I am struggling to keep my eyes open, it is rotten weather outside hailstones and dark skies so I think I am going to get my own blanket, snuggle up and have a little afternoon nap lol…
