A Happy New Year to you all
I need to update you on the Granny a Day project started by Ali last year. I have made one scarf, one baby blanket, 16 squares to make a bag (probably) a multi coloured blanket and now I have started a solid square multi coloured blanket. All these have been recorded in my previous blogs, but here is the multi-coloured solid granny square blanket which has not been recorded
Sadly I did not quite make 366, just 15 short. (sorry Ali) I was doing so well up until about two weeks before Christmas when I went down with a very bad bout of cystitis, resulting in a course of anti biotics, plus struggling to organise Christmas, and deal with updating memberships for my society on a new web based database here. Not really an excuse, or excuses, but that's how it was. I really enjoyed the Granny-A-Day challenge, and hope to find another one this year. I am also enjoying the multi coloured solid square blanket, and want to start another in more muted colours for a certain member of the family!
My Blue jug - I inherited this from my mother in-law and it sits on the pine dresser in the dining room an is usually filled with flowers from the garden. This year I have set myself a challenge to have flowers in it from the garden every day of the year - not an original idea - Margery Fish did the same thing and wrote a book about her vase of flowers from the garden. So, what is in this, rather dreadful display? It does actually look much better in real life. I promise!! There are some sprays of yellow Winter Jasmine, some buds of Viburnum and some gold Euonymus.
A sure sign that the days are lengthening - I spotted at the beginning of this week a couple of rhubarb buds peeping through the ground. Today I have a leaf and many more buds peeping through! I don't think it will be long before I am making rhubarb crumbles.
The sharp eyed will have spotted that I have changed the name of my blog. I don't want to write just about crochet - there are lots of other things that I want to write about. I may change the URL: as well. I haven't decided on that yet. I hope you will all continue to follow my blog- I would love to receive your comments.
