Well a few weeks back I joined my first CAL, which was organised by Sandra at Cherry Heart. It was my first crochet blanket, but I thought I have to start somewhere..
Well I have to say I really enjoyed it and am looking at making another one already, I ordered the Stylecraft wool pack from Black Sheep Wool.
Here are some pictures of my finished blanket.
Oh how I love it so..
Here is the wool I used, I have some left over so thinking of making a matching cushion.
At the weekend I also managed to make a blind for pickles bedroom, here it is before sewing
And here it is completed and hang up. It's made her room so much warmer. I ordered the fabric from Plush Addict, which was great and delivered to my door.
This is the 3rd blind of this type I have made, but by far the best due to getting better at sewing over time.
I now have a Seaglass shawl on the go, but I am making it with DK stylecraft from my stash - Raspberry, Parchment and Gold.
I got to try out the dough hooks on my mixer this weekend, I am so not good at kneading bread so they are a god send!,
here is the bread...
It looks lovely but the taste is not so great, I have real issues making Gluten Free bread, it smells yummy and this time it raised in the tin prior to baking but turns to a brick when cooled:(
Any advice bread makers out there?
Take care and keep safe dear friends
