Hello there, I’m a bit late with this post – it should’ve been written on Saturday – but hey, it’s the school summer holidays so we’re just rolling with it…
Here’s what I got up to last week in my crafty challenge 😊
Day 15 : Saturday 7th August
More festive leaves on the hook for day 15.
Day 16 : Sunday 8th August
My pile of Daisy hexies is growing… perhaps not as quickly as I had envisioned. I don’t think this blanket will be finished this summer somehow!
Day 17 : Monday 9th August
Summer craft challenge Day 17 went on the road… or perhaps that should be the train! I began a project I’ve been keeping on the back burner for a special occasion – a Little Box of Crochet designed by the lovely ladies The Crochet Sanctuary @Lynda-Rose & Lisa. I got half way through my heart which was made between Manchester & London.
Then I got to visit a place I’ve wanted to go to for aaaaages….. Liberty of London! ahhhh! Those fabrics, all the beautiful things….
I may have accidentally made a teeny-weeny fabric purchase 🤪
Day 18 : Tuesday 10th August
Managed most of the second half of my heart on the train home but I was utterly pooped and ran out of steam. The miles we covered on foot and public transport was bonkers (40,000 steps in less than 48 hours), but it was a very informative trip looking at possible places for Eldest to study next year – eek.
Day 19 : Wednesday 11th August
I made a crown and a chubby squidgy heart!
Day 20 : Thursday 12th August
Thursday’s crochet was all about leaves again!
Day 21 : Friday 13th August
A second project finished! I’ve been waiting over a year to make this and it was well worth the wait – a beautiful heart pincushion designed by The Crochet Sanctuary ladies for Little Box of Crochet. I love it!
That’s all for this installment of my summer craft challenge. I hope I can keep it up – I seem to be powering through my projects which is great. Onwards….
Thanks so much for stopping by!
