Don't you just love a Friday afternoon? I know i do!! The chance to kick back and relax just that little bit more than you do through the week cause you know you don't have to go to work on Saturday, yay, (even though i do like where i work mind you ;0)
Well day 6 of the Fiskars Photo challenge has rolled around and todays prompt is "Your craft space".
At the moment for me i have actually packed away my papercraft into 3 big plastic containers, to have a little break for a while and catch up on some different crafts. I didn't have to think about this prompt very much cause its always lying around on the lounge or in the car if i think i can squeeze in a couple of rows ;0)
Its my crocheting!! Portable craft :0)
And a few more pics, I'm well on the way, but i really still have lots to do.......sigh!
13 Colours in total, mixed up to form any colour combinations. My blanket consists of:
4 x 30cm squares,
14 x 20cm squares,
24 x 15cm squares,
53 x 10cm squares and
104 x 5cm squares.
A total of 199 squares, i have finished 55, about a quarter I guess, oh man I thought i had done more than that!!!!
I had to change the original pattern because it wasn't making sense to me, probably due to the fact that i haven't crocheted since i was taught by my year 6 teacher, who taught the whole class to crochet a doily. Now that I think about it, it was an enormous task to teach a group of 11 year olds to crochet, and it was much more detailed than what i am doing now!! Anyway I can't wait to sew all this together it is a patchwork crocheted blanket but i may have to make it a bit bigger to fit a queen size bed.
When you piece it together you actually show the seam so that it adds another dimension to the finished piece, so instead of sewing with right sides together and hiding the seam, you sew with wrong sides together and show the seam.
Okay I'll stop, i'm sure you are quite sick of looking at my squares by now!!
Tomorrow I will post the links that helped me get back on the crocheting band wagon.
Be sure to pop over to FISKARS and check out what all the other girls are photographing, Kim certainly has her work cut out for her, shes doing a great job collating it all:0).
Have a great weekend all.
