Sunday 4 July 2021



I haven't posted for a while as I simply had nothing to show. Projects in progress were slow to grow while I had little ability to focus on much due to headaches and lack of sleep . Running the household was my main priority which left me little energy for anything else.  

With a spurt of energy I am enthusiastically trying some new crochet .  I really needed to use cotton yarn for this project but couldn't get to the wool shop so I have used left over acrylic yarns instead.  " Blooming Lotus " square is from Sisters in Stitch with a free pattern and tutorial. The acrylic yarn isn't as good but for a trial run it does the trick.

                           I bought another crochet book. 

I have made a start on one of the projects in the book after I finally bought a few balls of cotton yarn on Friday.


Remember the cushion cover I crocheted a while ago? I bought a cushion insert when I was shopping for the yarns and finished it off on Friday night.

Block 6 of " Simple Days" was a delight to stitch. I am in the process of piecing the blocks but, as usual, it seems to take me forever choosing what fabric goes where.

 I promise to pop over to your blogs soon . Thankyou so much for visiting me.
