my first blog

ok so here it is, like i said before i dont really know what im doing, ive only just recently got in to blogs. i read alot of blogs, mostly sewing and cookery blogs i like to learn new things and look for things that will inspire me, and most of all im nosey...real nosey.

ive recently (maybe the last 6 months) got in to crochet, i decided to crochet my family a god it took forever and the kids broke it within about 2 days but it was rewarding and in the end i fixed it up. so i then decided that i would make all my xmas pressies and with 4 and a bit months to go i thought i would have enough now thinking not! and really how many ppl would appreciate a hand made thinking that only the ppl that make gifts themselves would appreciate a hand made gift. id love it, im sure my grandma would too and maybe my sister but in an ironic, kooky sort of a way but my mother would prefer a m & s voucher. im gonna make a list of ppl that would appreciate it and start by making those ppl pressies first, good plan batman!

ive started making a baby blanket, its lots of crocheted squares joined together and then im gonna make little crochet flowers to go on top and because im not very good at finishing off im going to attatch a piece of fabric to the other side to tidy it up, ive crocheted the squares and joined them together today ive got some yummy fabric and im looking forward to finishing it.....but i dont know how!

ive looked on you tube for a tutorial but i cant find anything :( should i just hand stitch the fabric o the blanket or should i bind the edges? can anyone give me a clue?

well i dont know how many ppl will read this but i feel better for writing it down, i hope this blog doesnt turn in to my own personal moaning session tho!

im gonna post some pics as well to make it more interesting but for now here is a photo of my new basket


  1. Hi!

    Congratulation on your new post and on making that blanket! I think that every family should have at least one thing handmade, and it is better if it is made by a family member.
    My mum crochet a blanket for me a few years ago, and it was the best thing ever, me and my husband used to fight for it (now my mum has crocheted another one for us).

    I am not sure how you want to finish it with the fabric, but maybe this tutorial will help

    Let me know how you got on with it!


  2. Well done!
    Keep at it- it took me ages and ages to get into blogging, but I stuck at it, and now I really enjoy writing about what I've been up to.

    Good luck!!

  3. Ooh thank you for the encouragement, it makes me want to blog even more
