It's been soooo long since I posted a blog here, but life is busy sometimes... although I did quiet some crochet in the last months, I didn't find the time to post blogs. But after finishing another project yesterday, I felt I needed to write something about this project. When opening WordPress I found out … Continue reading Finished WIP #1, 2 and 3!

This blanket … Continue reading My unfinished projects: project 2

I've been seeing a couple of crocheting books for quiet some time now so I decided to finally order them at Amazon... I'm very happy I have received them 🙂 I already had the PDF version of the Granny Square Flair but it's much nicer to hold a real book in your hands.
