There have been a number of crochet projects I have been working on since I took up the hook back in early April this year. I can be a tad impatient when it comes to reaching the final stages....that together with my keenness to learn I've started and stopped and started and stopped and then finally I stopped starting and I continued one by one until I had finished, all loose ends included.
A mug cosy, this was a special gift for Mrs Moo.
I've experimented with a few different styles of flowers, one of my next projects will be a crochet flower necklace.
I stitched this gorgeous flower (tutorial available from
Bunny Mummy) onto a boring old beige cushion. It looks lovely in the lounge room now. Brings in a little feminine touch . . .
I was very excited to find this pattern for a tissue box cover over at The Royal Sisters, I'm making one for every room of the house now, some maybe in just one colour. I really hate looking at boxes of tissues, I usually hide them in a cupboard, but with lots Winter sniffles at the moment I need to have them out and handy to grab at anytime.
My bed blanket is an on going project. This one gets kept in the car now so if I ever get stuck waiting for something or someone, I can just whip it out, and hook whilst I wait. Time passes so quickly and I don't get cranky at anything or anyone for wasting my time while I wait! I am finding Crochet so relaxing and therapeutic . . . I wish I had discovered it years ago.
I'm totally hooked on granny squares....I started to make a cushion with these bright squares but after a while thought they may look better
wrapped draped around my neck . . . if you look closely (please don't look too closely) you will notice I am still just finishing of the red edging on one side, I will be finishing that tonight.
(Did you also notice Bonnie, the cat, running up the tree!)
Then there is my Crochet Bunting, I first came across these at one of my favourite crochet blogs Crochet with Raymond. I didn't finish off the same though, it got a little fiddly for me! They look lovely hanging up in my little Annabel's room. I did most of these during the car trip to Gran & Pops this past holiday.
I can't take any credit for the beautiful bedspread, it was one of my first ever Op shop finds, and still one of my favourite.
Fun and Easy to make, Triangle Granny squares joined with chain stitch. I'm still a little bit wonky and loose with my stitches but I'm sure as time goes I will improve.
What do you think of the little barbie beanie?
It was suppose to be an Easter egg!
I've been collecting books from the op shops lately and have come across some amazing fashions and crochet ideas for the home, plus I have found some very interesting crochet blogs out there with a wealth of information, crochet tutorials and endless inspiration.
Check out these beauties...
What a world Crochet has opened up for me!
