Happy July Crocheters

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.

Baby Blanket
Baby Crochet Blanket

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.

Visit my store and see for yourself…

Summer In the Garden

What a lovely day, the sun is shining and there is a gentle breeze, it is glorious.

I am sitting in the garden crocheting a blanket for my mum and I thought I would share my lovely perfumed roses with you.

The plants in the tub are tomatoes, love Tom’s straight from the Bush they taste so good.

Here is the shaded area, there is a fountain right in the corner and the hanging tree is around 30ft high and its branches all sway in the breeze, beautiful.

I am so glad summer is here at last, it felt like we had a long winter.

Today Was A Burn Out

Well I gave my mum the twiddle muff today and she really liked it and it bought a little smile to her face.

She thought it would look good on her feet as they are always very cold, so on her foot it went and her little toes had the bobble wrapped around it lol.

So these were my aims today:

  • twiddle muff – great success, mum loved it and all of it’s bits and pieces, so that was well worth making and I enjoyed making it so much
  • grass – my jobs today were in the garden, mum’s gardener had health problems and he isn’t coming back so I cut the grass today using a flymo. It was a lovely bright sunny day today, a bit windy but that’s ok, I mowed the back lawn then used the strimmer on the edges all was going well. I started mowing the front lawn then all of a sudden the lawnmower caught fire OMG, there was thick smoke coming from it, so I quickly pulled the plug out and eventually it stopped smoking, we have to buy a new one now.

So apart from the burn out, I really enjoyed today it was lovely…
