Dressing up the couch.....Granny Style!

I have this 'thing' about polka dots. I simply love it!

When I bought the yarn, I didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I only knew I loved the colours.

Then I found this granny square pattern on Pinterest. Loads of free charts! I find it easier to follow the instructions if it is charted. I tend to get lost with so many words...lol!  Do you know granny squares are so addictive?! Playing around with the different colours was so much fun!

Some TLC for the Piano

It's brand new....the piano...so it deserves some tlc....tender loving care...it deserves a nice crotchet lace cover to ward off those pesky dust!

Free yarn!

I was going through my wardrobe and started tossing out t-shirts that I have not been wearing for some time now. Some are still wearable but a little 'old' to toss into the charity box. Then I came across http://pinterest.com/pin/141019032055172782/ on one of the Pinterest boards I am following. Suddenly I see t-shirt yarn in front of me!.... and it's free!! I can do that!!! 

And this is what I have done. 

I'm doing the cut-as-you-crotchet method. (Don't think there is such a method ;) ) It gets a bit boring if I just cut and cut and roll and roll to get a ball of t-shirt yarn. Besides, I just couldn't wait to get the ball rolling! Hahaha! 

One t-shirt down and on to the next till I get a big enough rug...or mat, for the kitchen...or bathroom. Oh dear, looks like I need more t-shirts!

Crotchet...a New Found Love

I have this thing about EPP...English Paper Piecing...hand stitching and the works. Lately, I have been hooked ...by the crotchet needle hook and granny squares!

Made this table topper....and yes, I also have this thing about table toppers. Most of my EPP projects are table toppers!  Anyways, I simply love to crotchet now. 

Check out my Pinterest Board for crotchet patterns...especially the granny squares!

The Crooked House

There once lived a crooked man in a crooked house...

in Windsor! 

(no camera trick employed!)

Ok...so, I have been MIA for a long...long...time. Truth is, ever since my sweetheart gave me an Ipad, I have not been turning on my PC...fo a long...long...time. I have tried a few blogging apps. Apparently,it's not working out for me. Then, I found this...


If you find me blogging again, it worked!
