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)

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.

The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥

Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?

I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
