Hello my lovelies, today we are celebrating my 300th post! Who'd have thought it, eh!
So today there will be a little giveaway but more of that later. First and quite timely I think, some snugly, cosy crochet. Just what we all need after the dreadful weather we've been having.
Although today the weather seems to be trying to redeem itself. I snapped this as I walked back up the hill from the shops. I love this little glimpse between the houses of the fells as I walk along the main road. Anyhow back to cosy, crochet.
Two almost identical blankets. Have you spotted the difference? The one on the right has some bullion crochet centers, see the little swirly bits.
All these squares were crocheted by my Dad. He then passed them on to me and I wove in all the tail ends and crocheted them together. (All the bits he doesn't like doing.) But since he is now retired and likes something to keep his hands busy when he can't get out in the garden, it suits us both as I'm unable to keep up with demand in our local wool shop. These two are the right size for a buggy, pram, car seat or just a small persons snuggle on the sofa.
Right, now for my little giveaway to celebrate my 300th blog post. I must admit it nearly sneaked by me, I almost missed it.
So I put on my very worn thinking cap and decided a pair of lacy fingerless mitts might be appropriate to see you through the autumn.
And something to keep your teapot cosy too. A 30' style patchwork tea cosy.
And a small selection of vintage Pearsall's stranded rayon threads to keep those toasty fingers busy.
And just because I thought they were pretty, some teeny tiny crochet flowers for you to do with as you wish. I always leave long tail ends so that they can be used for attaching the flowers to your chosen project.
All you have to do to be entered into the draw is leave a comment telling me what you might use these teeny crochet flowers for.
The giveaway is open to all.
You have until I say it's closed. (Power crazed, that's me, lol)
Please note the blankets are not included in the giveaway.
