Simple Crochet Baby Blanket

simple crochet baby blanket


A few weeks ago I started a simple crochet  baby blanket. It is just a striped blanket and I was going along really really well and making some great progress when I ran out of one of the colours.

You see I thought I had plenty of that colour but it seems I had plenty of a similar colour… but none that actually matched it perfectly. So I hopped online and order some new yarn and I’m still twiddling my thumbs waiting for it to arrive.


Hopefully it arrives soon as I really want to get this blanket finished and set up in the babies cradle.

In the meantime, I’ve still got plenty of things to keep me occupied.

Wish List Wednesday

Wish List Wednesday

I love looking at pictures of quilts, but I enjoy designing my own and figuring out the quilt math too much to ever [...]

Project Life Gift Cards

Project Life gift cards

Each core kit comes with bifold journalling cards, and these are something I very rarely include in my layouts. Partly because I don’t usually have that much to journal, partly because I can only ever use them on the right page of a spread because otherwise you have to go back a page to get [...]

Sewing Pants that Fit

Sewing Pants

One of the reasons I got back into sewing was that I struggle to find clothes that fit me well. Like most women, ready to wear doesn’t cater to the quirks of my body – long torso, small waist, large hips. I’ve been sewing regularly for about 5 years now, but I still struggle to [...]
