#100 Pastel Delight / Block 100 delight!
5 1/2″ sq
I like this, it adds extra interest to the Granny Square middle
#101 Into the Blue
5 1/2″ sq
Bit boring to crochet if you made a whole blanket from these blocks – according to my CAL notebook.
#105 Double Stripes
5 1/2″ sq (3/3 this week!)
These dc stripey blocks are a bit of a swizz – a filler for the book’s block count. I’ve photographed this upside down! If I rotate the pic the angle makes me feel vertigo-ish so I’ve left it.
Confession: I’ve also crocheted next week’s blocks this week because I haven’t got anything else in progress at the moment. I fancy doing some hand sewing so will do a bit next week as I’m ahead with the blocklets. I won’t post them early though, I don’t want people to feel they’re behind when they’re not.
I’ve got a pack of felt, some threads and ribbons so will see what I can come up with. Oooh speaking of ribbons – guess what? I WON five rolls of three metre ribbons this week. :-D I’ll post a pic when they arrive.
I’m in declutter and scrape the dust off the surfaces mode at the moment. It must be bad because at one stage I stopped singing along to Louis Armstrong and found myself doing an “Oh myyyyyy god” at the billowing clouds of dust that were between some of my folders. Shameful.
Have a creative weekend, if you can, everyone!
I’m beginning to get a decluttering/cleaning urge too. Think it’s because the sun has come out finally! Would have to be sunny for a loooonnngggg time to get it all done here ;)
Your blocks are lovely Rachel – some of them take a bit of patience don’t they, but so well worth the effort; will they become a blanket some day?
Spring-time clean does get to us doesn’t it – such a nuisance when it takes away from craft time, although, don’t we feel better when it’s all freshly done! Do have a lovely weekend! Joy x
Looks like it is your lucky week :). You won the book. Would you like anything specific written in it by the author?
“Happy crocheting” or similar?
You are most welcome. Can you please dm me or e-mail your address. Thanks :)
congratulations have fun with your new book and ribbon – you are on a winning streak maybe you should buy a lottery ticket today – good luck with your sewing x
I’ve got one! I thought the same- third time lucky…
Lovely blocks as always. Decluttering will start here once Dave the Decorator has finished! Found the crochet hook- yippee!
So, anything on the lottery ticket? I’m impressed that you’ve made it to triple digits, I still have to hit the #20 mark…. heh
Congrats on the half way mark. Love the colouring of the blocks. I’m looking forward to seeing how everyone puts their blocks together. :)
It’s actually more than halfway because of the swizz of the last section, it’s nearly over, 9 weeks or so left. There are around 26 blocks left. Then comes the fixing together….
