My footstool cover is nearly finished! It has taken me a lot longer to crochet this project than I originally planned as I hadn't counted the fact that it is like crocheting a blanket. It is what is on my hook tonight as I am hoping to finish it this week. I only have 6 rows before it is completed!!
The granny star baby shawl is a very new project which I started at the weekend after I discovered that I don't enjoy granny circles very much....not on the blanket scale. I got the inspiration for the granny star blanket after browsing the internet, although after doing a search for the pattern I found out it is not a free pattern. This resulted in a pinterest search for a very clear photograph of a granny star so I could figure out the pattern myself....as it isn't very complicated to do...naughty me!
My granny square blanket is slowly growing bigger in the background, but I am not in a hurry to get this one finished as I only hook it whenever it takes my fancy.
Aside from hooky fun, I have bought myself the sewing machine that I wanted and mentioned before in a blog post. I got it all set up at the weekend and tried the stitches out on an old pillowcase. I was really pleased to see that I could work a sewing machine, and I can't wait to start some sewing projects. Although I am a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of starting a sewing project as I am not sure what to make, where to get fabric from, or if I have all the sewing essentials to do sewing projects. I would appreciate any advice and websites that I could benefit from on my sewing journey!
I think I am going to go back to hooking my footstool cover a little bit more.
I hope you all take care,
