Progress Report

A beautiful colourful Autumn is nearly over and Winter fast approaching.  The other day I found crochet demonstrations on You Tube.  I thought I would give it a try as I have never crocheted before.  Here are the results, some colourful granny squares.  They have been very quick and fun to make.


Our little dog Pip was desexed the other day and has returned to her normal self, although we have discovered that she is not the breeds we thought she was.  She is a Ridgeback x Rotti (we think).

This week has seen the progression of my Truly Scrumptious quilt.  Here is a sneak peak.  I still have to put on the outer borders and three more little lady heads.


Husbands jumper front had to be undone about half way because I did not shape the arm holes (What a silly dill).  It now has to be re knitted.  Never mind.....

The weekend will see Dear Jane blocks emerging one by one. I have been collecting fabric until now so I am ready to get into it.

  1. Your granny squares look cosy and colourful, and your quilt does look scrumptious.

  3. Hey Marina,
    My goodness your crochet is so neat. Well done. Shame about the jumper. Don't you just hate it when that happens. Take a deep breath and start again.....

  4. Your TS looks lovely. I like how you've used the ladies heads.
    Granny squares are cute too.
