Yarny Distractions

It's been awhile since I've done any sewing and would love to turn these
 cotton fabrics into summery tops but alas I'm too busy at the moment.
Crafting time is quite limited so all my sewing plans will have to wait.
I have, however, managed to keep working on my granny square throw
and it's keeping me happy craftwise right now.

I've just made my sixteenth square. There are 48 more to make so it
 will probably be a few more months before it's finished. I don't mind
too much though. It's an enjoyable project to work on, often the 
perfect distraction after a long, busy day.

Another happy project are these flowers that I started making last May.
I want to add a couple more to this crocheted posy hopefully soon.

I've also been thinking of a project using these gorgeous cotton yarn.
Like the summery tops it might be awhile before I could get around
 to it but dreaming up crafty projects is a guilty pastime of mine I have
to admit.

What crafty projects are you busy with right now? I hope you're
 having fun. By the way, thank you so much for all your words of
 encouragement. They're very much appreciated.

Take care. Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh it all looks so scrumptious!!! Those posy of flowers is just darling! x

  2. your flowers are so cute Marion. It's tricky finding time to craft with a young family isn't it? Hope you have a good weekend too!

  3. The flowers are very pretty and your blanket is going to be gorgeous! Have a lovely weekend, Sarah xo

  4. I love the flowers. I'm going on a learn to crochet this weekend :-) the colours in your blanket are day I'll do one. Starting small first though. I'm hoping to find some more crafty time when BigR goes to school but am expecting LittleR to suddenly drop her naps!!! :-) x

  5. That is going to be such a beautiful blanket! Love the flowers too and how you have them arranged in a wee posy. I have far too many WIPs on the go including 3 blankets, a garland and a scarf! Naughty me ;)
