Daisy Granny Blanket

First of all, thanks for all your lovely comments recently and HELLO to some new folk!
It's so lovely to connect with so many like minded people through the magic of the internet, and although I may not reply to every comment I do read and appreciate every single one. So thank you!
Now a bit of crochet news.
Remember these pretty little daisy granny squares........'s because I showed you these way back in September!
And that's not it really cos I started these little lovelies waaay back in June last year.

I'm using Stylecraft acrylic, lovely for a snuggly blanket.
Only 18 colours, ha ha!

Anyway progress has been slow, it's a stressbusting project, picked up and put down when time and other projects allow.
I've really enjoyed this blankets journey.

Finally back in November I finished the basic squares
468 of them..............yes that's right 468!

Next job to edge them all in white and guess what I'm nearly done!
YOU can see the bottom of the basket.

And here they are.
Don't they look scrummy.

Aren't there alot of them.
I can't wait to get them all joined together and edged.
Just one thing nagging at me.
I have some new colours of Stylecraft yarn in my stash.......
........................I am so tempted to add them to the pile, so tempted.
They're the colours I used for my Dad's Birthday blanket
See the colours in my new header, it's them, pretty colours aren't they, would look good wouldn't they.
Will this turn into the longest project EVER!
Not sure, what should I do? What would you do? Add more in or get on and finish it?

Maybe I'll lay them out and see what they look like.
I know I'll show you and you can decide for me!
Good idea.
Be back soon.


  1. Such pretty colours and pattern - it's going to be a real beauty. Finish it, I say, so that we can all have a look! I've only made about 100 out of 400 blocks on mine at the moment. x

    1. Oh I'm busy slaving away on it can't wait to see it myself! Love your patchwork on your blog by the way.

  2. Looks already great! I am curious for the end result, byebye

    1. So am I hope it turns out how I picture it in my head!

  3. Hmmm, knowing me I'd push on and finish it. I say get all the rest edged and then see how you feel. But with 468 already, no harm in adding a few more into the mix? Make it a nice round 500 perhaps? Lay them all out, snap a few pics and let us have a look. I'm excited to see it x

    1. You see I feel just the same, I've done this many........a few more.....I'm thinking about it!

  4. Hi I'm Heather! Please email me when you get a chance, I have a question about your blog! LifesABanquet1(at)

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …
