Crochet WIPs

Good morning I think that Spring is on its way at last, there are snowdrops in the garden and the bulbs are starting to show as well. Today is bright and a little cool and I still feel like getting lots of jobs finished. I have decided to go through all my WIP ( works in progress ) bags that have been shelved for one reason or another. In order that I will do this I have been setting myself targets i.e. clear 1 bag and finish what is in it or rewind the wool to be used again. It seems to be working.

Firstly I have finished the Stickman family and a bag to keep them in.


Then I found a doll that has been packed away for a least 2 years, I think I must have run out of ideas to finish her and my brain seems to be working this week. So here she is,

Apple Turnover


Now all that needs to be done is typing up the instructions, not my favourite job at all, I am a very slow at typing, although I was taught how to type properly years ago I only use about 5 fingers these days.


Also there is a blanket made with squares so that is being worked on now.


Perhaps my brain is working again because I have started to clear out the house loft, it was so bad that I could not get anything else up there. I have been clearing at least 3 bags or boxes every day. Why do we keep so much???? There were papers from 1990 for goodness sake, they only needed shredding...... a tidy and clear house must make my brain work. I must keep it up.


This week has also been one for adding the rest of the wool to my Wool to your door store. hurrah it is all there now, I only have the hooks to add next week.


Hope you are all getting time to crochet, if you have any pictures of items you have made using my patterns, I would love to see the colours you have used, and to know where you live or where the item was sent. I know that lots of my designs have been bought in Canada, USA and Australia but have no idea of the States or towns..

The internet is an amazing thing to be able to bring together people from all over the world.
