Summer Craft Challenge 2018 (Week 2)

Week 2 of my Summer Craft Challenge has come to an end already! It began in Gibraltar and ended with a plane journey to England to visit family. Here’s what I got up to this week:

Day 8 Saturday 14th July

At last Donovan the lamb has all four limbs! Ready to be sewn together.

Day 9 Sunday 15th July

Finally, he’s finished and waiting for that little baby girl to be born! He looks lovely, and I just love his floral bottom :-).

Here he is, sitting up!

Another Little Box of Crochet project completed!

I was on a bit of a roll on Sunday, and even managed a couple of rows of my Seaside Stash Busting Blanket too! I’m playing catch up though, as it has been on the back burner for the last few weeks.

Day 10 Monday 16th July

Not much time for crafting on Monday – it was a busy day! Just long enough to manage a row on my Stash Busting Blanket.

Day 11 Tuesday 17th July

Tuesday was rather hectic too, so I only had time for a late night row on my Seaside Stash Busting Blanket in front of Newsnight, before heading to bed.

Day 12 Wednesday 18th July

On Wednesday I was utterly determined to get a bit of crochet done during daylight hours, so I snuck in a cheeky row after breakfast before getting my jobs of the day done. Amazingly, later on, I managed a bit more too!

Day 13 Thursday 19th July

So, not wishing to come over all superstitious, but on day 13 of the challenge I had a bit of a day. Think washing machine breaking down, a house full of builders, lots and lots of dust and then the hot water boiler went. I hid in the corner for a bit and pretended it wasn’t happening!

I wanted to start something portable which can be taken out and about with me as my two blankety projects are getting a bit big to lug about. So here it is, I’m having a go at following a chart by mypicot.com and I’m using my Jumpin Jelly Scheepjes Whirl which has been waiting patiently for the right project to come along.

Day 14 Friday 20th July

We headed off on our holidays yesterday so a spot of in-flight hooky was in order.

Thanks for stopping by, I wonder what next week will bring…

  1. I love all your projects 😍 That little lamb is so cute! 😊
    And the blanket πŸ’• I usually stay away from blankets because I get bored. But since this one looks anything but…I’m very tempted. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Have a wonderful vacation! πŸ˜ƒπŸŒ·πŸŒΌ

    1. Thanks so much Kristabella 😊. I know what you mean, I started and gave up on a few blankets and other projects before finding something I could stick with through to the very end. This one though, is great. Eleonora releases just 4 rows each week, so it’s very easy to keep up with. 😊
