Blogging again

I am sorry to have been absent from blogging for such a long time. We decided to make some changes at home and it was longer than we expected, it was well worth it in the end, a bit of plastering here and there painting ,decorating, new carpets, furniture etc that sort of thing.
Then I had some health issues which took away my enthusiasm to do very much in the way of crafting and I thought I would never get my mojo back but thanks to my daughter Sarah who encouraged me to crochet  I have made these throws and have really enjoyed crocheting again I found it very relaxing.
This first throw is a freebie from Attic 24.

This granny square throw is a vintage pattern from a magazine that I bought in the 70s and Sarah and I found it pictured in the Molly Makes magazine I made the smaller version for Sarah when she was a baby and could not resist doing this one again. If you visit Sarahs blog on the link above you can see her lovely work plus she has posted the pattern for this throw.
You will notice that both throws are done in the same colours to match each other.

Here is a photo of them all together the small one is a sweet little afghan I crocheted for a friend who is expecting her baby at Xmas it is a free design here
This was a very quick and easy  little afghan and I really enjoyed crocheting it.

I have managed to do some cross stitch during my absence but have not finished them into anything yet but I can feel my mojo returning at last and am happy to be almost back to normal thank for visiting and please come back soon. Take care.

Beautiful crocheting! I love the fantastic colours you chose for these. If working with such gorgeous colours doesn't make one feel better, I can't imagine anything else that would.
