I love this blanket and it definitely one for me to keep. I love the wonderful bright and cheerful colours. Best of all, it matches my new sofa perfectly. The blanket is based on the traditional Granny Square, which is a firm favourite of mine. A total of 81 squares are joined using the wonderful red joining colour. You can easily make the blanket bigger or smaller by adjusting the number of squares you make. I added some tassels in each corner to give it boho vibe, but this is optional. You can find more details and the free pattern here.
I absolutely loved making this Coffee Time Throw. I love the mix of browns and pinks – and best of all they remind me of a lovely relaxing cup of coffee. The patterns is based on the traditional Granny Square. You can find the pattern/details here.
Oh dear, I have had a lot of IT issues recently (laptop died) and so have not been able to show you progress on a number of my recent projects. This Cool Chunky Stripes Blanket was lovely and easy to make and uses the herringbone half treble (uk) stitch – I used this for my Aqua Chunky Cushion too and love the stitch definition. The pattern for this Cool Chunky Stripes Blanket can be found here.
Apologies for the long silence. I have been working on several projects recently and have not got round to writing these up and sharing with you. I have now had the change to give you more details on I made this colour block blanket. Find details here.
Apologies, I have been delayed in updating my blog. I have been recently finished 2 or 3 different projects and have not had time to write them up on my blog.
I love the colours of this Magic Pink Granny Square Blanket. In fact, it was so popular on my instagram page that someone asked to buy it before I had it finished.
I have now written up the free patten here.
I have a been working on another couple of projects and will update you soon.
My favourite thing to make is anything with granny squares in, but every now and then I need to do something different. I loved making this blanket in the Lemon Peel Stitch (sometimes called the Griddle Stitch). It has a lovely texture and is quick to work up. But best of all, it is super easy.
This stitch does not have big holes. It is versatile and can be used to make a variety of items (washcloths, scarves, animal blankets, baby blankets etc).
For written instructions on how to do the Lemon Peel Stitch please see here.
Apologies for the delay in publishing this, but I have finally finished writing up how I put my Granny Hexagons together to make a lovely throw.
Find the page for these details here.
Well I have finally finished my Granny Hexagon Blanket. As promised, I have now provided details on how I make crochet Granny Hexagons, half hexagons and quarter hexagons – please find the pattern/details here.
My next task is to write up a few more details on how I put my Granny Hexagon blanket together. More updates soon.

I haven’t written a post for a while, apologies for this. I have been really busy working on some different projects, and also family life also was busy.
I thought I would give you little taster of what is coming on my blog shortly.
Granny Hexagons have been taking up a lot of my time lately. I basically wanted to make a blanket made from different motifs and wanted to try something other than squares – so I went for Granny Hexagons.
I wanted the edges of the the blanket/throw to be straight (and not hexagon-shaped) so I had to work out how to make two different types of half hexagons as well as quarter hexagons. Anyway my plan is write this all up and have this on my blog shortly.
I have also worked on a simple granny square in between time, which requires a bit less thought.
Hope to update more on these projects soon.
I have just started selling some of my newer crochet blankets in my Etsy shop and so far this is going well. I must say it has been lovely to have some fantastic feedback from happy customers and I am thrilled that my blankets are finding new homes.
I also donate some of my work to charity and this week I sent off 2 large batches of blankets to charities.
All the blankets are 100% Acrylic and washable, so they should be perfect to use in their new homes.
I love to crochet, but sadly I cannot keep all my work. So I am really happy that I can make these items with lots of care and dedication and then see them go off to their new owners. Best of all – I can keep making and designing!
