Keeping Quiet and Crochet

Hello, I hope you have all been keeping well. I have been keeping quite quiet recently due to being on night shift and mainly focusing on one project, my granny star baby shawl. It has grown quite big lately, and it measures around 28 inches on the narrowest diameter points. It won't be long until it is finished as I want it to measure around 36 inches, as it needs to be big enough to wrap properly around the baby. I really love making this, it is just as much fun as a granny square!

While I have the granny star baby shawl on the go, I started another baby blanket project for my brother's baby that is due in September and I found it that it is going to be a little boy. This is perfect for my stash busting as I had plenty of blues left over from my Stylecraft Attic24 bundle that I bought last year. I haven't done many squares, but I have four different colours which I am going to border white and then join them together. I am not sure how big I am going to make it and how I am going to border the whole blanket, we will just need to wait and see!

I haven't had much time for sewing adventures just yet, but I have bought fabric so that I am ready to make some lovely patchwork goodness. My plan is to make a patchwork cushion and possible a cute apron!

That's all I have been up to!

Take care lovelies,

  7. I'm happy that you have your portrait on top (with the crocheted hat). I want to make one as an addition to my hippie sweater. There will be yarn left ... I like the fabric you've chosen. I'm positive that you will make something beautiful with it.

  8. I love a baby star blanket and the granny one you are doing is even cuter!!! Really fun!

  12. The apple fabric is cute! I really like the star shaped baby shawl. It's so much better than the other one that had been originally planned.
