Is it Spring?

Good Morning, Is it Spring? my Grandson asked last weekend, I had to say not quite but it won't be long.

Its only 8.30 here and the ironing is done, the next jobs are blog and some serious typing to catch up with pattern instructions. My youngest daughter is a slave driver, "lets do this Mam" and "you need to get this done" more emphasis on the latter comment...


I have been up early this morning because Phil and Mark our son in law have been away on a photography trip.

I went to stay with our eldest daughter. She gets up for work at 6.00 so I did as well and I came home before she left for work. As she only lives about 10 minutes away, I think I may have been home before the birds woke this morning.

It is another bright start to the day which always makes me feel like getting on with things, on miserable days I just want to sit and crochet...

I love the designing bit of my work but really have to push myself to type up the instructions.

Seasons Blankets

I think that because it looks like Spring outside I should talk about the designs I have that relate to Spring.

The blankets shown above are my Seasons blanket collection, Spring is the top blanket, I chose the colours to represent bright blue skies and crocus flowers. All the colour ways shown and 2 sizes of blanket measurements are included in the instructions.

Anna

This is Anna, the doll I made for Spring, the instructions include her little bag and a slightly bigger one to put her in to carry round.

 

Finally Springtime in Paris

The colours were chosen from a photograph I took in Paris.

Paris

Choosing the colours from the picture, I don't know how you feel, I love choosing the colours for a new project, but don't enjoy finishing.. For me its the typing up of the instructions, if only I had a magic wand......

Finally upcoming news

If you are worried about trying to make a doll, I am going to be working on a new CAL which will be how to make a doll... I always try to make the patterns easy to understand and not too difficult to follow.

I will also be doing videos to help beginners through the process of this CAL.

I am not sure just yet which one I will do or if I should design a new one, Watch this space.......


I used to find it hard to write this blog but now I find it difficult to stop, I hope that its not too boring, I seem to blather on like I do when I talk but I must go, the typing up of instructions awaits, so I must finish here,

I hope you are all well
