Crafty in the Med

I'm here to enjoy meeting other crafters and to share my ideas and projects. I love to crochet,cross stitch and embroidery but I'm keen to try new crafts too. I love music and I love to sing! Singing makes me happy. I collect jugs....its their shape I think! I am addicted to yarn and buttons. I get lost in book shops and can spend all morning there and I absolutely adore rummaging in flea markets. I love to read sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I would be the first passenger on the first time machine ! I BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

Granny squares will never die!

and they won't.........I've been inspired by the beautiful granny squares projects that I've noticed on following lots of really fab blogs like CreJJtionA Tale from Toadstool house and meme-rose....and many many more!!   My granddaughter's bedroom is getting to look rather drab and I thought a bright bright cushion cover made of granny squares would brighten it up.   I am using  Nº 5 Perle cotton and a 3.00 hook.....I chose cotton because I have lots of bits ...left overs and I really need to use them all up.   I also think cotton isn't so scratchy as wool.....my Cookie babe is a real hotpot even in winter she hates cardigans and such and wool will irritate her....I can see her flinging the cushion on the floor if its too scratchy. I suppose I could have done it in baby yarn though.....hmmm the next one!
Anyhow as you can see its underway and taking photos of it has given me another perspective of how the colours combined or not....it looked quite bright to me but now it doesn't seem so in the photograph. I have also tried to keep the bedroom colour scheme in mind.     Amanda  :-)

I love to receive your comments and I read all of them. Unfortunately real life does get in the way sometimes, so as much as I would like to I cannot always reply to every comment, however I do my very best to keep in touch.

Amanda :-)
