Works In Progress

I have recently started planning a new crochet blanket. I nearly have all the wool I want and can get going soon. However yesterday I realised I should probably finish some of the projects that I have laying around before I start anything new. But I have sooo many ideas and want to get going on them  lol.

This is just 3 of the projects I have stashed around the place.

The first is a Ripple Blanket based on Lucy's pattern here. The coulours don't show up very well but take it from me it is VERY bright :)

The next project is something I have been working on for a while. When I get a new ball of wool I start by making a granny square for this blanket. Then each coloured square is surrounded by some creamy Aran wool.

The last project is going to be a cushion cover. I keep seeing piles of crochet cushions on pinterest and I MUST have my own collection lol.

So I really should finish at least one project before I start on my new blanket idea.....

A Cold Start To the Season!

Well its not been the best start to the growing year. We have had snow on the ground for the past 3 weeks. This time last year I was enjoying the baking sunshine such a big difference this year.

A snowed under polytunnel
A very cold Wartime Garden
And a frozen Orchard
Hope it warms up soon!

New Garden

I have a new job and with it not one but two new gardens to work in.

The Wartime Garden

The Poly Tunnel Garden

both need quite some work but it shouldnt take me too long to get them up and running. The Wartime Garden is a dempnstration garden showing a more traditional way of vegetable growing. In the Polly Tunnel Garden I can use more modern methods and grow a variety of different and unusual fruit and vegetables. I can't wait to get started :)

On the site you can create your own Sci-Fi comic book cover.
