Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

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  Nยบ 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 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 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  :-)


  1. That is going to be beautiful - I love the colours and I also use a lot of cotton or bamboo. I enjoy using natural yarns xx
