Little granny crochet brooch

I am just a little bit proud of this little brooch. It was soooo simply to make. Little granny square background with a loopy flower and button sewn on top. Makes a change from the usual blankets xxx

Crochet circle cushion cover is now a little hat!

Ooops started a granny circle crochet cushion yesterday.
It was going so well then after the 6th row it started to go all so wrong.
I'll have to go back to the lovely blog that shared the pattern and ask for a little bit of advice!
Oh well never mind my little doll now has a mob cap....try not to waste anything...think I know where I went wrong.....ever decreasing circles maybe??
Big match on tv soon....c'mon u reds!!! My big boy is there right now

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone I finally learnt how to do it Heather x

Kool Kotton

Went to Manchester on Saturday to purchase some of the lovely Kool Kotton that Abakan sell. Great price and it is so lovely to crochet with. I'd also like to knit some buntings for my caravan with it. May just take that when we next visit Anglesey....very soon.

I take quite a lot of photos on my I phone even though I have a pretty damn good camera.
I'm giving it a go on here. Uploaded for you to see some of the Kool Kotton.
Off to work shortly but before I go I'm going to have a go at Heathers http://www.littletinbird.co.uk/ little granny circles
I quite simply love this blog
Also do visit Orans place to see her completed granny stripe blanket....its so lush!
 xx Later xx

About Me

My photo
Hello and thanks for visiting me. I'm Heather and this is all so new to me. I am a big big fan of other peoples blogs. I love all things quirky and different in my life and my home, mixing the vintage and the new together. Having mastered the basics of crochet mainly through the internet and a lovely lady who had the time to sit down and show me just how it was done I am now quite addicted. However I need to learn how to stop skipping from one project to another! I'll share my 'projects' with you and my love of vintage crochet and knitting patterns that I hope to upload onto here. I am also quite a big fan of charity shops and will share my little finds with you too. Lots of blogs have inspired me to do one of my own I hope you can come back and have a sneaky peek at 'whats occuring' in my life! Heather xxx
