Colourful crochet for a gloomy day.

I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself this week, just a bit fluey but haven't felt able to do much. I haven't done any sewing but this has meant that I've been able to catch up with some crochet mainly my Yvestown granny blanket.

Well it's getting there!
I crocheted these recently using the Royal sisters tutorial for Grandma hearts here.
I used the same pattern & made these red hearts for Lissylou who is having a 'Red for Heart' sale tomorrow in aid of British Heart Foundation. Good luck with the sale Lissy Lou I hope you make lots of money.
I made some for myself too.
On Facebook I was recently bemoaning the fact that I desparately wanted a small round wooden stool. This was so I could make a crochet cover for it just like the one on Dottie Angel's blog.
Well thanks to Claire at Dolly dollop, who came to my rescue I now have one. And in return I'm going to crochet her a cover for one of her other stools, I believe she has a few ;D As you can see I started yesterday, this will be mine as there is an annoying mistake on the first round.
And these are getting ready for the Easter craft sale. They need eyes and fluffy tails yet.
Along with these, which will become rabbit faces on flowers and then added to plant sticks.

What a lot of gorgeous crochet! Wow!
I have been wanting a stool too, to do exactly what you are doing, lol. xxx

Lovely crochet, especially those bunnies. I'm always amazed at how quickly you crocheters (is that a word?) can produce a blanket. It seems much quicker than knitting.

Sarah said...

So pretty and clever xx

I am so loving those pink & white hearts, so pretty.
Hope you feel better soon, I've had this dreaded lurgy that's been going around for 3 weeks & it's still hanging on!
