A little bit of crochet

Hello all, I hope you've been having a good weekend.  Quite a relaxing one here for a change, so even had time to do a bit of crafting yesterday! Today's jobs were mostly outside as the weather was dry - if a bit blustery - and we really needed to do a bit of garden tidying!  The effects of the frequent (!) heavy rain and strong winds have taken their toll a bit on my little garden and it's definitely looking a bit battered and weary with it all.  I'll be so glad when the plants and shrubs all start to come out in leaf and flower - although it was nice to see the determined little daffodils making a concerted effort to cheer me up!  And I also fed the weary old cat (that really lives with some neighbours but never seems to be in the house!) as he seems to have adopted our greenhouse as his 'chilling out' room!

Anyway, I just thought I'd share a little bit of crocheting with you.  I was delighted to sell another crocheted baby blanket recently, and so I thought I'd make another one using the corner-to-corner pattern that I really like

I've used the lovely soft Stylecraft Special DK, which I think is ideal for blankets - soft, durable, washable and reasonably priced! 

The blanket measures approximately 90cm square and I've added it to my Etsy shop.

The crochet pattern is on the lovely 'Felted Button' blog here.

I'll be back this week with some new cards too - yes, I really have been busy! 

Back soon,
