Ripple Blanket from Wendy's Quilts and More

My crochet ripple blanket is finished, just in time for winter.

On my son's bed to show the size

I started to become aware of crochet again in the lead up to Christmas last year.  I saw that Jane in Sydney (@queen_babs on Instagram) was asking for people to make purple crochet mandalas for a yarn bombing event to raise awareness of fibromyalgia.  I thought it was a great idea, so I crocheted 3 mandalas for her and sent them off.  You can read my blog post about them here.

Been One of Those Days from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

It's been one of those days when you plan on doing one thing and end up doing something totaly different. First of all I planned on  writing this morning when I am better at it but that is also when I have the most energy. My plan was to work outside for a while, then come in and write. Well I didn't work outside because it looked as those it would rain. So then I started putting around the house and couldn't stop. By the time I did, it was lunch time. Sat down to have a ...

I love little crochet projects.   The crochet washcloth patterns are one of the best things to try out when you are first starting to crochet.  They are smaller in size….and square.  You can practice keeping your edges straight (mine don’t always turn out that way!), a few new crochet stitches and you can play […]

Spinning Wheel from Thread Head

I got a new spinning wheel - an Ashford Traditional Double Drive.

It is a joy to spin with - I was amazed how different from my other spinning wheel (an Ashford Kiwi - which is a really good wheel too, just different).

I spun my first skein of yarn on the new wheel - it came out very even (the fibre was easy to spin).

This was the fibre - 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon (Bare Stroll Roving from Knit Picks), that I dyed with an odd assortment of colours (I am trying to step out of my 'colour box' when dyeing).

The ...

2015 Finish a Long - Q2 goals from Wendy's Quilts and More

It's time to think about what I want to get finished in Q2. Mmm, so many options.

I'd already decided that 2015 was my year to work on WIPs and I'm going quite well so far. I finished all 4 items on my Q1 Finish a Long list, and although I have started some new projects, I am exercising restraint and not plunging into everything that looks appealing.

So Q2 - what's it to be?

1. Finish my crochet ripple blanket which is almost done. This blanket is about 1.7m tall so will cover me nicely ...

Happy Easter from Wendy's Quilts and More

I hope you're all enjoying an Easter break. We're having a lovely time with my mum and dad here for five days.

Yesterday we took a trip up the Kapiti Coast and went to Te Horo. It's a very stony beach with lots of driftwood, but funnily enough just 10 kms down the road there's another beach with beautiful white sand. I think the other beach is protected by Kapiti Island so there's less debris washed ashore.

me and mum

We also went to Ruth Pretty's Cooking School for coffee and cake. I love ...

Snuggies from Bizarre Quilter

Even though they are not quite finished, Shelley and Rhette needed to snuggy under their blankies...
 both feeling a bit under the weather, and really, it's all a crafter asks for is her creations to be used, loved and appreciated.

 Here is a pic of the robot and dinosaur bunting hanging in situ.
And even though I'd love to get them finished, (and the purple one on the couch which is for my sister expecting her first baby), the mailman brought the horse fabrics to make my little girl's quilt.... and I'm going to try to ...
