Crochet mood blanket 2014.

Hello ladies, just a little update on the crochet mood blanket,  Ive  caught up again and up to 45 on day 45!

Weather here has been awful,we are very lucky with no flooding but had  over 100mph winds and very heavy rain and hailstones.  Yesterday was a day to stay in and catch up on my crochet and drink lots of tea.

We've  been renovating our bathroom and its caused so much mess ,I can hardly think straight, its nearly finished now. I shall share some photos when all finished.

Back soon,lots of love,xxx

crochet update...

Hi lovlies, I hope you are all well. I thought I'd just pop in to say hi and let You see what I've been up to the past couple of weeks.  I decided to add more of a border to the nanny mcphee blanket and I am happy to say it looks a lot more finished now. I added a double crochet row and then a scalloped edge row. I'm really pleased with it now and think its my favourite blanket so far.

All folded ready on the pile for some snuggling up time.

Other things I've been up to is joining the crochet mood blanket 2014 group, I found on Hazels blog These were the colours I decided upon.

 I'm using Lucy's, attic 24 hexy pattern.

I've also discovered the joy of applique crochet over the weekend and started with a toadstool :)

this one I knitted and made up the pattern...

I also made a heart one today from a tutorial I found on line.

Tonight I have been crocheting some flowers from an old Mollie makes issue, to make a garland for my new welsh dresser.

 I'll pop by soon to show you the results.

I've been surrounding myself with spring bulbs in the home, letting me know spring is just around the corner, keeping my mood up and counting down until I can get back out into the garden :)

These ones were reduced in M & S, £10. down to £2.00,they are coming along nicely.

And these lovlies are popping through out in the garden.

I,ll leave you with these I also got reduced, they are really brightening my day.
back soon, lots of love,
