Lots of finished projects

Wow, what a productive couple of weeks.  I have finished so many projects that have been lurking around for ages!

First is a sweet little needlecase

Very handy – useful and practical.  Another beautiful button from Judith of fuse n beads.  I love these cute little hand made buttons.  They remind me of sweets.

I have been getting requests from my beginners crochet groups for simple ‘granny’ patterns.  I have come up with a couple of bags and purses for them to try.  They are very simple, but really effective.

This is simply made with two granny squares and a handle that doubles as a gusset. And of course the obligatory hand made glass button.  Not usually the ones I go for, but it exactly matched the yarn!

Here is another bag, which is made of one large square with the corners folded into the middle.  A kind of envelope bag.  What little girl wouldn’t be really pleased with this matching bag and purse set?

The long awaited granny square blanket is finally ready for showing!  I used tapestry wools for the middle of the squares and King Cole Merino for the rest.  It is fairly small, but I just wanted a smallish blanket for my lap and it is super warm.

I wanted the warm earthy tones to match my curtain material.  Speaking of which, here is another project finished this week – no, not the curtains yet – but a matching draught excluder and door stop.

The colour is a bit funny in these photos because the sun is at a weird angle, but I promise they match the blanket!  Hopefully before too long then the curtains will be made too!

I have also got a few other things for show and tell, but that’s all for today!
