My creative space... Inspiration

(the one above is my favourite!)

I am obsessed, OBSESSED, I tell you with these lovely crochet rugs and cushions with their lovely colourful centres and their clean, crisp white borders!
I took a trek to Spotlight on World Knitting Day last Saturday (hello 25% off!!!), bagged myself some lovely colours and have finally started my own lovely blanket of crochet goodness.  I have been following the Royal Sisters Grandma All Square Tutorial which has lovely pictures to go with it so you know you are doing the right thing and also advocates the join as you go method.  So far I have managed 50 coloured circles ready and waiting their white edges.  I figured I'd just keep going until I either run out wool or get sick of looking at them (which hasn't happened yet)!



(my apologies again for the totally bad use of iphone photos!)

  5. Gorgeous! There is so much inspiration to be found out there. I haven't tried this pattern myself. Long term projects aren't my thing. But with summer vacation here, I might just have to give it a go. Have fun! Best wishes, Tammy
