Well hello, how long it has been since I have blogged!! What can I say....life has been ridiculously busy, something had to give and without realising just how long it had been, 9 months have passed!!
Lots and lots has inspired me of late out there in blog land and its got me feeling the creative buzz again. :0)
I have been on a bit of a mission this year to get lots of colour into our home, mainly through my crocheting, which I have been plugging away steadily at. I do have a few (maybe more ;0) WIP's) but the one I thought I would share is my progress on my very colourful big blanket.
Last time I shared it looked like this, 5 different sizes squares to be joined together.
But when I started joining, I was not a happy camper, it just didn't look how I imagined, and so after many months of crocheting I piled it up and plonked it all in a basket feeling a little peeved! Whilst I pondered what to do, a post over at Lemonde de sucrette's blog last year on her big monster granny blanket, got me to thinking that maybe I could change my blanket to something similar. So I set about making my squares all the one size, and that was 8 rows, with the 8th row being my joining as I go round. So now it looks like this and I am very happy with how it is coming along.
I love that I can do anything, any colours I like.....no rules!! No 2 squares are the same, I don't give a lot of thought to it. I just sit and crochet and crochet and crochet!! It was on the back burner a bit while i was working on another blanket, but I was inspired once again by Lemonde de Sucrette and her Monster Granny challenge that she has running at the moment and I have been kick started into getting stuck into it again. Even though it doesn't really fit into the challenge guidelines, its given me inspiration to get it finished once and for all.
I look forward to sharing some other creations with you soon.
thankyou to the lovely ladies who have been concerned about my missing in action, its lovely that you think of me :0)
