Hello there! How has your week been going? Good I hope!
Have you been making anything fun?
I have been busy making granny squares in lots of gorgeous colour combinations to make some granny buntings, well, my version of granny square bunting anyway. I have been quite productive and speedy for me, I usually seem to take a long time to amass a nice pile of squares, but this week they have grown pretty fast!
I stacked them all together and then spent quite a lot of time admiring the way all the colours worked together in little slices and glimpses, something about this really pleased me and made me very happy! So of course I had to take a heap of photos so I could remember it and look at it later whenever I need a little colour fix. So that is why you are seeing all these pictures of stacked squares, it is all quite self indulgent really!
I think they look a bit like a fat colourful caterpillar. I am thinking there are a few colour combos here that would look great as a skinny stripe blanket too!
Anyway, I am in a bit of a tizz getting things made for an exciting market that I am having a stall at on Saturday 18th October. It is the first one for the season at Emu Plains Market, held about 5 minutes from here at the Balnarring Racecourse. I love this market, it is set under the gum trees and has lots of stalls, I have been as a shopper last season, but this is my first market stall there with my Little Woollie Makes things! Eek! I hope it goes ok!
I am taking along a bit of a mini yarn stall too, just in case my stall looks empty with too few crochet makes, I will have yarn for sale as well. Come and say hello if you are down this way, I'd love to meet you! (that was the best part of the last market, meeting some readers of this blog!)
I really enjoyed doing the Nanna Cool Market in Chelsea last month, the feedback was so encouraging and everybody was so nice, this one is much bigger so I hope I don't get too lost in the crowd!
Now I have to crochet all these squares into lines of bunting, I thought it would be a quick job, but I did one piece this afternoon (16 squares), and it took about 10 times longer than I had anticipated!
So that is how I will be spending tomorrow I think, and hopefully I will have more pretty pictures of some finished bunting. I know it's been around for a while, and probably done to death, but I still love a bit of bunting fluttering on a Spring day!
Okay, I had better go and get started on those buntings, I might be able to cross a couple off my to do list tonight if I am good!
See you later!
