A day for bright colours !!

Well goodness me I'm sooo tired, getting back to the normal rhythm of life has really hit me tonight.Although I'm enjoying being back at it , I didn't think i would be sooo tired .It has meant tonight that my eyes are too tired to sew so i decided to get my hook out and settle into the gentle rhythm of my Granny Square blanket. I
managed to finish another row of 10 squares ( not all tonight !!). So needed to delve into my box of centres to work out the sequence of the next row of 10.
 There isn't really a particular way I'm choosing the colour sequence I just don't want too many of the same colour repeating in a line .
 Next sequence selected I can crack on with it ,I would really  like this blanket finished by the end of this summer and my eldest does keep asking me when he's going to get his blanket. He had quite an input at the start of the blanket as I let him Select the colours ( not colours I would usually work with on a piece destined for our house, but it will be in his room and I think work quite well in there ).

Today has been a day for working with bright colours , I'm going to let you have a sneeky peek at a project I'm working on with my youngest sons class ,we're producing a quilt to go on the class wall which will then become a perminent fixture in this classroom  for many years to come ( hopefully). The children involved are 4 to 5 years old and are learning to use fabric and sew.

I will be posting progress reports on how the quilt is coming on . I think you may also agree that it has certainly been a day for bright colours !!


  1. I really like your chicken cushions and the tree with 'hand' leaves on if really lovely.

    What a lovely blog. Do you use freezer paper for your chickens?

  2. Hello from another Tracy! Helen Nicholson recommended your blog so I just popped over to say hi. Lovely crochet you've got going there. I don't have the patience to learn, but hubby is teaching himself as we speak!

  3. Hi Tracy thanks for popping by, crochet is very new to me but I like the speed at which it grows.Glad to her your husband has taken up the hook, I can strongly recommend the attic 24 blog for crochet inspiration.
