I love reading the ‘crafty blogs’, where people make quilts, knit blankets and display the beautiful things they have made. I can’t crochet. I am a crafty soul but I can only focus on one thing at a time, so in term time, that’s school. I’m sure it will be next August before I finish the quilt that I started making last year. I most admire the beautiful coloured quilts that ‘Bunny Mummy’ makes, along with the crocheted bunting and decorations, she really is so clever. I didn’t make the blanket that Bob the dog is modelling. It caught my eye in a charity shop window this morning. I saw it by chance as I took a different route to avoid the road works. There it was, draped over the display in the RSPCA shop window. I left work early and headed there to see if it was still for sale. They wanted £10 for it and I handed over the money as it would cost more than that in yarn and I even felt guilty that I didn’t pay a bit more. Well, here it is, my lovely crocheted blanket. I’m chuffed to bits.
