I'm having a change!!!!

Hi my loves, I'm having abit of a change.
Blogger has stopped uploading my pics again, it's sooo frustrating. So I've spent all day creating a new blog with Wordpress. So far so good I've uploaded a few pics already. Please be patient whilst I get use to a new set up.
I do hope you will join me, don't forget to re-follow :)
I've got so much to share.
See you on the other side my loves:


Good bye for now my loves and happy crochet x x x

I'm back. Hoorah x x

Hello again my loves, I popped out briefly to check if the blog uploaded and to take a few pics. I can't believe how incredibly easy this is, I love, love, love it x

I just wanted to show you one of my birthday cards that I really like.....

I like it so much, I might even frame it :)

Okay, let's move on to the crochet.
A lovely lady at knit 'n' natter asked if any of us had any odd balls of yarn we no longer needed as a friend of hers was busy knitting toys for poorly children.
I dashed straight down to my shed and had a fab clear out (I'll show you a pic next time). I gave three big bags of oddments and brought a few in to the house for myself as I'm ready to take on a huge project!

It started like this....

I decided to use 20 different colours!!

I turned them into these....

315 beautiful colourful wheels. I tried sooo hard not to have two wheels the same!

I then turned them into these...

Fabulous stacks of granny circle squares. I love them and think that they look so beautiful. It's amazing how on a project like this the colours just work together so well.

I'm adding the cream border to 10 circles at a time and then sewing the ends in. I hate sewing ends in, but if I do it like this it's less tiresome.

The finished project is going to be a king sized granny blanket for my bed. I've measured it and have decided to make the blanket 20 x 15 squares which is 315 in total. I think this is wishful thinking and just know I' m going to have to make more colourful wheels.

I spend so much time making and creating for others, I thought it was time I made something for us :)

Mind you, it will be Summer time by the time it's finished!

I am enjoying it though, I'm enjoying the repetition on a pattern I really don't have to think about.

There is only one problem, I'm suffering from golfer a elbow from too much crochet!!!!!!

It is quite painful at times. My Dr said I should give up crochet for two months!!!!

My new iPad is a useful distraction :)

Bye for now my loves and happy crochet x x x x x x x x x

Hello my loves, I've missed you all sooo much and the blog of course. I'm so excited to be back. I've got a lot to share with you, as you can imagine. It's been a long time since I've created a post.
I'm not really sure what went wrong, my pics wouldn't upload on my PC I tried everything. A post is not the same without pictures is it?

Last Thursday it was my birthday, I had a fab day. I also received some lovely presents from kind friends and family.
My best ever present was an iPad, yeahhhh. I'm so happy with it and can't seem to put it down. It is effecting my crochet it a little!!
The iPad is what has brought me here today. I found a blog app and here I am. It's so easy to take pics and upload as I go, I'm loving it.

If you've been reading my blog for a while you will know that I'm not technical in anyway at all. So I'm creating a short post today just to try it out and see how it all works.

This pic is a little dark, my friend sent around a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It's scary how fast birthdays come around, next year is my big one :(

I'm going to leave you now to take pics of all the things I want to share with you.
It's good to be back.

Bye for now and happy crochet.
