Patchwork July

Hello.......... patchwork time again

July was quite a busy month here, lots of get together's with friends, for birthday's, a wedding and even a spot of garden table decorating, which of course took a bit of a toll on my health, that's the nature of ME/Lyme disease there is always a price to pay for spending too many spoons (spoon theory), there was of course a little bit of crochet though........

While I was inside recovering, out in the garden summer was in full bloom. 

Well not much else to say about July it seems such a long time ago now, I really must get better at posting the patchworks on time

Happy Crafting

Work in progress Wednesday

Hello.......... I thought I'd do a bit of a WIP Wednesday post as a bit of a catch up, as well lets face it I've been a bit rubbish at posting lately.

In my defence I didn't really have too much to share as energy levels are low and pain has been high and to top it all off this happened, I have no idea why !!! but the knuckle on my little finger came up all red and swollen and that kind of put pay to any crochet for a while, how I missed the yarn.  I'm guessing it's related to the Lyme disease as I'm currently off my antibiotics so lots of my joints have been playing up, but a red and angry looking joints is a new thing here. 

Any road mustn't grumble as of yesterday the hooks been back in my hand.

So a little catch up on the fingerless gloves, well it was all going so well and I was following along with the pattern for the thumb rows, until I hit a snag, as you can see I have teeny tiny hands and well the gloves are turning out to be just too big. So after much huffy and puffy and lamenting my tiny hands, it's time for plan b, just need to figure out what that is, as I adore these pretty gloves.

I'm still plodding along with my rainbow drops wheelchair blanket, which is coming along just fine.

Now it's confession time, as you may know I already have many ongoing blankets on the go eek, well I just thought I'd try to see if I could make one of the flower hexi's, from 'Cute and Easy Crochet with flowers'  That was my plan until oops I accidentally bought some yarn in colours that would be just perfect for this make.......

Well that's about it, hopefully once the Summer's over I'll be around a little bit more.

Happy Crafting
