Gem of a Find!

Hi, I just wanted to share this little gem of a find with you, which I picked up in my local Help the Aged charity shop in exchange for £3 of my hard earned cash!  How cute!

Going to save some pennies for a rainy day!

Crafty Christening Gifts Any Ideas?

Good afternoon, hope you are all having a crafty day!

I have a little dilema I would like a little help with, my best friend has asked me to be godmother to her twin girls in April and I would like to make them something they can keep, either knitted or crochet a present they can take with them on lifes journey.  I have been thinking about a blanket for them both but wonder if anyone has seen anything special or could suggest any ideas?

Granny Square Crochet Hot Water Bottle Cover

I have been working hard to get this finished and although I am pleased with the results, I really wish I had used some brighter colours as I not really a big fan of pink!!
I made this by making 14 granny squares, I decided to crochet 8 together first (2 x 4) and then crocheted 4 together (2 x 2) so I could make a flap at the back and used 4 little pink buttons to close it so I can get the water bottle in and out to wash the cover.  I left the top open so I can fill with hot water without removing the cover.

So I have added a little granny chic to my bedroom, on to my next project, Mmmm I wonder more granny squares maybe!

Next Project: Sad Hot Water Bottle Cover

As I was getting ready for bed the other night, I looked at my hot waster bottle which was chillin out on my new owl pyjamas and I thought my poor little hot water bottle looked so sad!  So I have set my next project to revive my hot water bottle cover and bring some granny square chic to the bedroom!

Granny Square Cushion Finished!

I am so very pleased with this cushion and I hope my friend Lucy will love it as much as I do :-).  I have to admit I was not sure about using the hot pink to edge the cushion and to be honest I only used the pink because I ran out of the purple wool I was using and really did not want to buy another ball!!

More Crochet Granny Squares

More crochet granny squares, I just love them! they really do make me smile! - I am making another cushion which I will hopefully finish this weekend as I am itching to start another project! I decided to edge the squares in lovely purple wool - looking really funky!!
