2017 New Starts

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year.  I did.


Today I am going to show you some new projects I have for 2017.  The first one is not really new, as I am morphing my Ravelry 2016 BAM into the 2017.  I only did 6 of the 2016!  For January’s Blocks I did the main block Moody Blues by Helen Shrimpton


For the filler block I didn’t do the chosen block as it was very lacy so I did last year’s August block - Queen of the Meadow byLettice Rose.  In my colours it looks as if it should be called Queen of the Coral Reef! 


The next project is a pretty vintage project for a dear friend.  An Afghan design - Song of the Forest by Johanna Lindahl.


It is a join as you go which is good as I suck at joining!  Quite complicated but the instructions have lots of photos.

The last project is a project for those times when I don’t want to pore over instructions, great for while watching TV etc. Mind you it is in 4 ply!  But is wool so will be heavy enough for a throw. It is the Memories Cal by Julie Yeager.  


In between these I have lots of WIP’s from last year to finish!  So, a busy New Year for me.  Have you lots of new crafty plans for 2017?

I hope you all have a wonderful week and produce a lot of eye candy for me to look at, lol.
This made me laugh when I saw it, so me!

  4. The squares are great! Nice to see bright colours in the middle of my dull grey winter day! I can totally see what you mean about the "coral-like" ruffles in the Queen of the Meadow square :)

  7. LOL, how appropriate that definition is for us crafters. Your blocks are mini works of art in themselves - so neat. I really like the start of your new crochet.

  8. Those are beautiful blocks and yes....the 2nd one looks like coral! Beautiful! I was going to join but I just don't see how as I'm making presents for next year already. Your last block is so pretty and I do love the vintage look and feel to it. It is just gorgeous. Is it a pattern for just one block or is there a whole blanket pattern? It is stunning! Well, they all are! Love the procraftinate sign. Have a great week!

  10. I love your Moody Blue square with the pop of red and yellow. And you already know I love your Queen of Coral Reef square. What a perfect name! And your Song of the Forest blanket will be so pretty done in those colors. And Sharon - I LOVE the yarn you're using in your Memories squares. It just makes me happy to look at it. And thank you for the chuckle. Procraftinating! What a great word!
