Five Point Star - Crochet

My latest small project. Thanks to an image on Pinterest for the idea. I learnt to crochet at the age of 6, so it's relatively easy to work out the pattern from just looking at the photo.

On another note, I'm not updating my blog as often as I used to do as I found myself spending too much time on devices instead of spending time enjoying working on my craft projects. So, now there is more time spent on finishing off big and small projects, and cooking yummy dishes and baking. :-)

Hexagon blanket - Finished

The hexagon blanket I was working on was finished and washed a little while ago. It is now in use. :-) I placed a DVD case in the photo to give an idea for its size.... There is not really a pattern for this blanket. But I'm sure there are several patterns that look similar to it floating around on the internet. I think the combination of colours is what makes this blanket look attractive, and I love it, of course. xx

I'm around as I have always been. :-)

Happy New Year 2018.

I know it IS long overdue with updating my blog. A few crafty friends were enquiring about my well-being and my updating of the blog.... I'm still here and around as I have always been since the last update in September 2016, which was ages ago.! I just didn't get around to write and update my blog. I have been keeping very busy, mostly catching up with what I was missing out on while focusing on my (other) professional work. There are certainly a lot of laughs over cups of tea and coffee involved in the process (of the 'catch up'). :-) I enjoy having my HOT cups of tea and coffee, nowadays. Having good long sleep on a regular basis definitely a plus in many ways. Patchwork, quilting and several other craft projects are very much at the centre of my spared time as I'm continuously busying myself with my long arm machine quilting service. Here I was, at a monthly social craft outing last Saturday, enjoying my cup of coffee and working on a crochet hexagon blanket - only 8 more rows to go and it's done. :-) .... For those who haven't seen me in a while, I got my hair cut short before Christmas 2016, after 20 years of having it long, almost down to my waistline. And, in case someone is wondering, life is still very much full of wonders when it comes to travelling. I don't seem to be able to stay put for too long.!
