Hello Everyone......hope all is well in your part of the world! Thought I'd share with you my 'Twisted' Elmer blanket. It's not quite finished yet, I've still 10 seams to sew, but I'm giving my crochet sore fingers and elbows a rest first!
I started to make this a few weeks ago, I felt I needed something to make me sit and relax a bit after all the recent difficulties. It became a bit of an addiction.......I know, very unlike me!
I wanted something to use up all my leftover Kings Cole yarn, and just loved all the Elmer/patchwork blankets around, but I decided to put my own 'twist' on it.......
This resulted in some mixed coloured grannies in there too, I love the effect.
I've spent many hours crocheting away, watching the granny piles growing....
Eventually I had enough to put it all together......
This one is for Mr Bea.....he thinks it's because I love him, or maybe because he's 'twisted' too?!
It's not the biggest of blankets but it will help keep his legs warm whilst he's producing his music!
Those of you on Instagram will have seen all this photos before, but I just love the editing choices you have on there, much easier than anything else I've got! I'm really hoping to upgrade my camera this year, and learn how to take better pictures.
We say our goodbyes this week to our beautiful mum so I won't be back until next week. We are planning a glass or two of champagne before the ceremony, partly as Dutch courage, and also as a celebration of a wonderful soul, who touched us all so deeply.....we shall be having a glass for Mum, who loved champagne......so maybe that will make it three glasses!!!
Bye For Now,
Ada :) xxx
I will leave you we another colourful image.....Pumpkin :) x
