colour ... after a grey patch

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I am so touched by the gesture of a lovely blogging sister!  She has featured my crochet work on one of her beautiful blogs


Speaking of crochet, I have some to share with you.  I was away from blogging for a while as my grandmother passed away two weeks ago. 

Soon after, I continued an old, monochrome crochet project.  But I feel that crocheting too much of one colour pulls me to more colourful crochet.  Firstly though, I managed to finish off another old project.  Do you remember all those squares I used to blog (a bit too much) about?  Yes, there were those greeny bluey ones that became a blanket/throw.  


There were a load more of the crazy, whacky colours though, and they became this:

  
One crazy coloured blanket or throw!

I also had yet another girly crochet request: something to cover this scruffy-topped,  bedside table


There was a pattern I'd been wanting to try out for AGES.  Others have done it too.  So I thought I'd use it for this.


Now it sits happily in the newly painted, girly-pink, girls' bedroom!

And because I can't JUST be working on old projects like this


here's something new.  



Colours that I've been wanting to put together for a while and a Sarah London pattern I've been after for a longer while.
