Guys, we’re at part 12 already! I can’t believe it =D I hope you all have been enjoying this CAL so far, what are your favourite squares that we have made? I don’t think I can choose as I like them all so much ❤

I have seen some lovely springtime crochet makes going on lately, so I plan on making a post with some of my favourites next week, so look out for that one so you know what to make first =D

This weeks square is one of my own patterns, and is a slight variation to the African Flower crochet. So let’s get crocheting!

Hi Guys 😊 I hope you are enjoying your back holiday weekend. If you have been on the ‘gram lately you might have seen a few posts going around about littleyarnbunny. Unfortunately she has become seriously unwell whilst attempting to make another blanket for charity. I was originally going to post a different square this week, but I have changed the square to align with littleyarnbunnys original squares. The plan is for the crochet community to make many granny squares to make blankets for charity in honor of littleyarnbunny.

If you wish to find out more about this please go and check out stitchedupcraft; we will be making white simple squares with a rainbow motif. I will be making one for our CAL, and several for this community blanket. I hope you guys will too ❤️

Now, let’s get crocheting!

Hi Guys, this is just a short post to show you some of the upholstery projects I’ve finished recently. If you like any of these projects please feel free to comment which ones, and I will try to do a simple walk through on how to do them =)

I also wanted to show you these so that you guys know that these types of projects are manageable, even as a relative newbies to upholstery (the footstool was my first upholstery project, and the sofa my second!)! All you need is patience and a willingness to learn ‘on the job’.

But anyway, here they are!

Guys, we’re at part 10 of this CAL already! Where does time go euhh =D

Happy Sunday, hope you have all had a lovely week; we got back from the lake district on Sunday evening, and I have been wanting to go back since! Do you have anywhere that you want to go back to?

I did get a few ideas for new squares whilst I was on holiday, so definitely look out for those in the coming weeks. Also, if you guys don’t already please do follow me on Instagram as I post more frequent updates there that don’t require a full blog post.

This weeks square was created by the lovely Susan Hinton and she was very generous to let us use in it our Granny Squares Galore CAL; please do go and check out her Etsy store to, I know she would appreciate it =)

As this is Susan’s pattern, I have decided to just show final images of my squares for this week, and also a crochet chart I made for this pattern, for those of you who find them easier to read ❤

So let’s get crocheting all!

Hi everyone =) this week has gone so fast! I’ve made a few new amigurumi patterns this week, and connected with a few other crocheters (more on that later =) )

UPDATE!:

Lilac’s Pattern has been released! Find it here, and find the chicks pattern here!



 

Hi all! This is just a quick post as I’m super excited to show you a few new additions to our crochet family! I will be posting the patterns for these new additions in the next coming days, so keep an eye out for them.

So without any further ado, meet Lilac, the bunny! (Yes I know she’s blue, but that’s neither here nor there ;D )

She’s so cute isn’t she!

And here’s a little friend I made for my Jellycat Starfish, Stevie!

This little friend currently doesn’t have a name, so feel free to make a suggestion for a name in the comments!

As you all know, I released the pattern for my amigurumi chicks a few weeks ago, but they felt like they were missing out, and so here’s a picture of them with Lilac and Floof, the sheep!

New friends!

I hope you guys like the new additions! I’ll post again soon, but until then,

Happy Crocheting,

Abigail

Mothers Day Flower – GSG 6

Hi all! Happy Mothers day to everyone 😊 I hope you all have lovely days, whatever you are choosing to do. I thought we would make a nice flower for this weeks square as a tribute to mother’s everywhere =)

I wanted to make this square special and so I have chosen a 3D flower which we make first, and then we make the square around it (a bit like our St Patricks square!). We will end up with a lovely flower framed in a square.

Beautiful!

Let me know in the comments what you are up to today, and what you love about you parents. I love my parents for putting up with me and always supporting me through all my madness!

Annnyyway, here’s the pattern!

Happy crocheting!

Abigail
