Tah Dah!

Sorry I didn’t blog last week. My chest infection became pneumonia and I was knocked right off my feet, but an infusion of antibiotics have done the trick and I am nearly functioning on 3 cylinders, lol.   The upside while I didn’t feel like blogging etc . I have especially in the last few days been able to do lots of crochet.

First of all, I did manage to finish the Bam2015  Afghan with a couple of hours to spare for the Ravellenics. So here she is in all her glory.




For my troubles I got two awards, the WIP Wrestling:


And the laurel for modular work from our team Captain:

New Starts

As I last posted on finishing the Afghan I was going to treat myself to starting a new one, well I have decided to do both as I have ideal recipients for both. So the Lotus Moon Tiles started 2 weeks ago and I am motoring ahead of the group on it as it is for my grandnieces birthday and that is before the Cal ends.  By the colours (pinks) you might have guessed Kendal will be 8.



The second one is for my sister in law; it is a Cal run by the Colourful Cal group on Ravelry.  Its starts on 1st September but  I have got a head start, I am using odds and ends of wool from my stash.  So I present Demelza by Catherine Bligh, it was influenced by The Poldark series on the BBC.  She has also designed a Ross Afghan as well.


So far I have used 18 colours!  It is very satisfying to use up odd bits of wool that have been cluttering up the place for ages.

However, I have to confess that I have an order of wool in the post for the Julie Yeager Cal that starts in 2 weeks, no wonder I need to be ahead on the other cals.

Finally I wish to thank Anna from Anna's Simple Crochet for the One Lovely Blog Award.  I will do a separate post for that during the week.  Have a beautiful creative week everyone and I will see you on my rounds.

  8. Oh... that finished blanket looks beautiful. And your Lotus Moon tiles are just lovely. I love the name, even. :) And then I scrolled on down and saw that Demelza square. Wow. That blanket is going to be gorgeous, too. I love those colors! You have some heirlooms here and in the making, Sharon. I'm just imagining how thrilled the peeps you're giving these to are going to be.

  10. I miss your stunning works of art but this gorgeous creativity will suffice... I love those colours together and your artistic talent transcends all genres obviously! Your use of colour is always perfection and makes my heart sing! As a former avid crocheter I understand how complex some of those patterns can be.... Fabulous work!
