My creative space…

April 16, 2009 27 Comments by Kirsty


is looking very square isn’t it?

Despite feeling that I’m totally over brown I’m keeping going with the granny squares. If you’re a lover/maker of granny squares you might like to join in with this.

Also square…

Lovely fabric picked up at the Ocean Grove Op Shop. I got a lovely big bag full of goodness for next to nix. Out of town Op Shops really are the best.

Thanks for playing nicely while I was away last week.

Pop in and add your link if you’re playing along this week.

    I’m loving your brown grannies. I don’t know how to crochet but it’s time I learnt and granny square a day might be a good opportunity!

    I like that fabric. Your squares are coming along but I’ve never liked the way fingers and toes get caught in the holes of granny squares. That’s just me I think.

    Brown is such a lovely colour, especially when we’re moving towards winter. Imagine just how snuggly your blankie will be!

    I really need to crochet. I got a thousand books from my grandfather when my grandma passed away. I just need to sit down and learn. I love the browns!

    I think your granny squares are pretty fab too. That will be a beautiful place to snuggle in the winter.

    Hey Kirsty. Love the squares – ALL of them. Perhaps you should get your daughter helping with the Afghan!

    Wow – so many creative people dropping by. I can’t use a needle for anything (except maybe play a record!) but I am in awe.

    mmm, love op shop fabric goodness, I think any op shop is good, as I haven’t been to too many out of town ones. Loving the granny squares, they look great.

    I wish I had learned to crochet when My Grandmother tried to teach me. I am so inspired by what I see in the blogworld. Inspiration comes in many forms.
