Bunny

I’m loving the sunny weather we’re having! It seems to do wonders for the state of mind!

So I finially finished the bunny I was crocheting! 

Unfortunately I got the arms to far forward and didn’t realise til too late!oh well!! And I’m not happy with the shape of the ears….i followed the pattern (they look just like the picture) but they are just not right. Hubby was rude/cheeky about them….said they looked like condoms!!! Didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!! Although the more I look at them the more I agree! (Just don’t tell him!!! Lol!) 

Hope you enjoy the sunshine! 

Busy busy…

So I’ve had a busy couple of weeks, between work, birthdays, trying to get used to not being greeted by out cat everytime I walk in the door, poorly baby aswell and I wanted to create a crochet cat, I think I did ok with it!

I used a pattern out of the book Edwards menagerie…..I found it easy to follow the pattern and after several attempts at the face I’m fairly happy it! 

So I had my birthday, in which I was spoilt! We had a lovely meal out,which was a nice surprise! My mother in laws birthday was a couple of days after mine, so it felt like a long celebration!! 

Work is busy as usual, the eldest one  I look after has started playing football at various local club….thankfully I only have to drop off!!!  (I am not a football fan!) 

Long week

Last week was the second week of half term and I was back to work! After having a up and down week before I wasn’t looking forward to the long hours half term brings at work! I had to take Eddie with me so looking after the 3 boys was a little bit of a challenge but I managed!

It didn’t help that the husbands scooter broke (again!!!) And we had to take him to work for 6am, so it mad either an even longer week 😦 thankfully it’s fixed now….let’s hope it stays fixed!!!

However I did manage to try a different bunny pattern 

There are aspects of both patterns I like and don’t like so was debating whether to create something using the bits I like from each pattern….not sure if I’m brave enough yet!!!! 

I’m trying to create a crochet basket at the minute and it’s turning out smaller than I’d like…oh well practice it is….!

Let’s see how this week goes!! Have a lovely week everyone!! 

UPDATE! so here’s the finished basket…smaller than I thought it would be and the handles were a pain, but I guess it turned out ok.

Saturday morning….

Up far too early because of a certain little monkey! Sigh!!

So I’ve had this week off and to be honest I haven’t done much, had quality time with hubby and not so little baby, caught up with family and didn’t get round to doing half the jobs I wanted to do! Oh well! Making memories is more important! 

Today we are off to a wedding where my dad’s partner is bridesmaid and my little brother (who’s 8) is page boy….should be an interesting day! Hubby will be smart in his suit, Eddie will look great in his checked shirt and jeans…and I’ll be in a dress….help!!!! 

Hubby has been on late shift this week so after I put Eddie to bed I started a little project…


My little uneven, mismatched bunny! Undecided weather to add a face, hubby likes it without! When in started crocheting my goal was to try and make an animal…think I need to keep trying!!!

Happy easter weekend everyone!

Granny square

So I’ve got a week off work as the family I work for are away! And to kick it off I was ill 🙁 but all better now thanks to brilliant hubby who did the bulk of looking after Eddie!! Because I wasn’t well, Eddie seemed to pick up on it and was clingy and grumpy too! P

I also managed to make a granny square that is different to the ones I had been making…what do you think? The wool I used was a scrap and a pain in the butt to work with!!

That husband of mine….!!!

I love my husband and he’s taken up crocheting with me….after I’d finished my granny square blanket he decided he was going to make one too. He found some lovely looking wool and started crocheting. He was using a size 8 hook, so the weave was bigger and used 2 balls of wool to create something slightly bigger than mone. And the cheeky sod finished the blanket in 2 days. 2 DAYS!!!!!! 

I’m proud of him for doing it but a tiny bit annoyed because it took me ages to finish mine! 

And of course our little one loved it as it was so soft!

Crochet…..my granny square blanket 

So after about a month and 4 balls of wool, I’ve finally finished my little project! I’ve made a granny square blanket for my son! 

So I started with a blue ball of wool with darker blue flecks in it. The second ball was white with  green and blue flecks in it. The last two are the same, a multicoloured/dyed wool, picking out some of the colours already in the blanket. The end result is that it’s 28 inches square, so will make a nice blanket for now and then maybe be used as a lap blanket when he’s bigger?

I think he likes it!!

It’s definitely unique and I now can’t decide what to create next!!!
