Ooops it's Tuesday

Hello All!
What a bad blogger I've been, missed my Sunday post.
Well I'm here now so here goes.

The Granny Baby Blanket has changed a little since I last showed it. I decided after a bit of deliberation, that I would crochet the squares together, which is a great way of doing things.
So It's now looking like this.
The girls at Butterfly Knitters on Saturday persuaded me that it needed another row and it will therefore become a square.
This picture was taken in the garden on Sunday when it was very, very hot.
Monday turned out to be very hot and humid too (some very grumpy children at school) with nasty clouds around which eventually broke and gave us some rain.
DD has now finished GCSEs so is a lady of leisure, evident from the beautiful drawings on the drive which she and BF have been making today.
Self portraits.
Love is in the air.

A lovely cow.....
and piggy.
I've just realised looking at these pictures that I've a blob on my camera lens. It's been cleaned now so hopefully normal service will be resumed.

I've seen a pattern for a cardi from Drops which is getting me quite excited, maybe I can use up some stash, but I'm trying not too think about it too much because I must get off and do those Friendship Blanket Squares (why do I leave it soooo late?)

Hope you see a bit of nice sun in your neck of the woods this week.

P.S. I've just gone to the Drops website to give you a link to the cardi and they've released their Autumn/Winter Collection. Lots of lovely patterns there ~ flippin' 'eck ~ more in the queue.


  1. It's been so nice to have a bit of good weather isn't it?
    Nice drawings. Really cheery :)
    Your blanket is looking lovely. I really love the colour combo.
    Lol I have a case of startitis at the moment. Up until now I only ever worked one project at a time but this time my stash is building and so is my WIP bag (now bags).

  2. What a fun post.. loved the chalk drawings and the granny squares. My next granny square will be planned and matching colors.. doing different colors on all of them makes my mind explode. LOL
    We're having 3 days of rain and then the sun is supposed to arrive. I'll believe it when I see it!
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Lovely blanket. I hate sewing up so crocheting the squares together sounds like a far better option.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  4. Yes crocheting squares is a lot easier - could have given your old mum credit! Lovely pics - a bit of childish fun. Makes me think of pics on infants school tea towel.

  5. I recently discovered your blog and have enjoyed reading back through your posts. I love your granny square blanket. I've only just learnt to crochet and have started a blanket, though mine is being made with lots of random colours. My son has just finished his GCSEs, I've been more nervous than he has over them. Love the chalk drawings.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
