Crochet...Granny Square Blanket, Flower Brooch, Painted Jewellery Box...

I recently finished this crochet blanket, I'm a bit upset about the edging, it's gone all wavy and I can't find where I finished it off to unravel it :(  My camera can't capture the colours properly, the blue is more turqouisey, the purple lighter and the dark pink isn't so reddy (in fact the pink and purple in the flower are the same wool and are a better example of the colour, although the blue is still way off!)...

I also learned to make crochet flowers with the left overs...the photo is of the same flower, the front and then the back, can't decide which side I like better...(this tutorial was helpful, my flower looks the same but I changed the actual crocheting of it to make more sense to my brain!)

And, do you remember, many moons ago I posted about a lovely wooden jewellery box I found in the charity shop for £1, well I've given it a makeover using patterns from my Cath Kidston 'Make' book, much better I think! 

What have you been making?


  1. Crochet flower is lovely.

    Wonderful personal and creative touches to the jewellery box. What a great way to make it your own.

  2. Thanks Mangocheeks, I'm quite pleased with the flower myself, I've always wanted to make them and now I can :D


Thanks for visiting!
