where do you crochet?
This is a corner of our family room with my nice blue sleepy hollow chair (a little the worse for wear, after 14 years of children romping all over it), and some crafty stuff that is generally spread in various parts of the house. I like to sit here in the afternoon winter sun and do a little hooking if I have a spare half hour. I often sit here to eat my lunch or read a magazine, it's just a really nice spot in our house!
This is part of my first crochet effort my lovely red and green granny square rug, I am really happy with the colours and how vibrant it is ( you can see it hanging over the back of my chair in the top photo). The next thing to do is decide on a border and finish it off!
This is a cushion I am making in similar colours to the granny. My blue owl is something I made to experiment with fair isle colour knitting, once again similar colours. (I think I keep coming back to favourite combinations, no matter how I try to do something different). I think he's kind of cute! Being a novice, I made the pattern too complicated and it was slow going making the owl front, I am happy how he turned out and I learnt a lot, but I would simplify my pattern next time!
Do you have somewhere you particularly enjoy crafting in?
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great creative day!
