Back Again

Its been a really hot start to the year, not conducive to energetic activity, however I have managed to do some art and crochet, the poor garden is dry as a crisp, hopefully we will get some rain soon.


I have decided to gift crochet blankets to family this year, and the easiest way to do this is join CAL’s on Ravelry. My favourite is BAM2016  (Block a Month), well actually there is two the main block and alternative filler.

January main pattern is Stars Aligned by Polly Plum, here

January filler is Larksfoot by From Home pattern here

Of course the main square for February had to be a heart! Grandma's Heart pattern here.  I changed the last 5 rounds and added the popcorns as I wanted it more solid.

I loved the filler square, Fan Dance by Polly Plum again, pattern here.
I am doing sveral other Cals but will show in later posts.

However I couldnt resist doing this doily for Valentines day.


I am trying to do a spread in my journal every week.

Well that is it for today, I am going to try and post once a week, cause I miss blogging!
See you soon Sharon


  1. I am so glad to see you back Sharon. I have missed your colourful portraits.

  2. These crochet blocks are terrific, I especially like the second and must check out this CAL.
    How interesting to see your lovely paintings in Real Life here with your pastels and hot drink.

  3. Sharon I can't believe I missed this! Gorgeous crochet...I was such an avid crocheter back in the day!! Even made many of my own patterns intuitively!! Love the colour combination you picked for the wool!! So nice to see your gorgeous artwork again!! Don't forget to join paint party friday again...I'm sure everyone misses you as much as I did!! Also what brand are those blocks you're using? Love the bright colours!
