Giveaway Winner

I just realised that I put the 9th rather than the 8th as the date for the draw, oops sorry!  but since nobody seemed to notice and I did say Sunday,  I got Hubby to pick a slip at random today and the winner is...........

Lorna, a very talented lady who writes an inspiring blog Here

Congratulations   I hope you enjoy making something crafty with the fabric and buttons.

Thank you for all your comments. It's always good to explore new blogs. There are such a lot of talented people out there.

I'm slowly getting back into the normal routine now everyone's gone back work and Uni'.  The garden is starting to get it's spring tidy on the odd nice day. There is such a lot to do but it makes it more manageable  to do one bed at a time.

When the weather's not so good I've been catching up with some of the TV I recorded over Christmas and doing some more crochet.  When I laid out the squares made so far it didn't look big enough, so I've decided to make some more so it will be 9x9 blocks (about 4' square)  Then it might get a border, we'll see how it goes.  Only problem is running out of some of the colours now and some are discontinued but it doesn't matter too much,  I'll just add in some others!  The colours remind me of spring so it's now offically my "Spring Flower Blanket"

Bye for now


  1. The blanket is coming along so nicely, the colors are beautiful and I love the way you have a more intricate square next to one a bit simpler, just lovely.
