Ongoing projects


I’m working on a couple of projects simultaneously at the moment:


African Flower Pillow 
(for previous post look here)
Only have to join the flowers on the outer row and crochet
an edge around it and then it’s finished.



Play Mat 
(for previous post look here)
The panels are connected and form the front side of the mat. Have to cut edges and a back side now.


For the finished project look here.

For the tutorial look here.

New Grannies
Although I love to crochet grannies, I can’t bring forth a complete blanket. Too boring, doing the same granny over and over again. So now I’m trying this: crochet one different granny each day, until I have enough to form a complete blanket. Maybe that works for me. Who knows, I can show you a REALLY LARGE blanket in time. 




Little Stool
Well, actually this stool is a project I did finish this weekend, but I want to make another one. I must say ‘we’, because my husband made the stool and I only made the seat. They’re for the bedrooms of our daughters and have a matching table.

Good tidings: my brother and his wife came to visit us this weekend to tell us they are expecting a baby! Lots of things to do for me!

And I found the most beautiful orange roses this week!

    1. Thanks, Kim! The play mat is finished now (see my latest post).

      I would like to see your UFO quilt as well (you mean UFO as in Unidentified Flying Object?)! I'm curious! Can you show me the result when it's finished?
