It was heaps of fun scrapping with fabric instead of paper for a change! There's still heaps of other techniques I'm going to try too....
The other thing I started this week was a crochet blanket. Now I never thought I'd ever learn how to crochet! Both my Nanna's created beautiful blankets and things with crochet but they both passed away long ago so I never had the chance to learn from them. The other day I was looking at all my spare wool sitting in the cupboard and had the sudden urge to find out how to do it. So I headed to You Tube and found this tutorial and before I knew it I was off and running! I'm sure both my Nanna's would be tickled pink to know that I'm having a go at the craft they loved so much... Here's what I've done so far...It's just the traditional granny square pattern but I'm continuing it on rather than making a heap of squares to sew together. These are the colours I'll be using...So far it's only big enough to use as a doll's blanket but I'll just continue on until it's big enough to use as a throw blanket. I like having something to do while I'm sitting on the couch watching tv.. feels like I'm achieving something. LOL... Plus I think it'd be so lovely to see my blanket sitting there on the shelf with my Nannas' blankets.... And you know what? I just taught my Mum how to crochet on the weekend too! She's a beautiful knitter but never learned how to crochet before. So now she's started her own blanket!! I love that I've been able to show her something for a change.... :)
Ok... I've rambled on long enough for one post!! LOL ... Until next time, take care!!
