I recieved my copy of Mollie makes and in it was a lovely granny square stool top, I don't have a stool but I do have an old bed side cabinet which stands in the hall with the phone on. Our hall is dark and dingy not at all pretty and I thought I could have a go at making one to sit on the top. So I found instructions for the required stitch on-line and had a eureka moment! I can do granny squares hooray! Unfortunately I hadn't realised the cabinet was rectangle not square so instead of putting elastic on it I edged it with a pattern from
It's brightened up the space no end, I can't show it in situ as it's too dark so this will have to do.
I have now started some small granny squares for a blanket, oh how long I have wanted a granny square blanket now I can make my own hooray. I am using up all the wool I already have so it's another stash buster and will be very multi coloured : )
I have had two poorly little girls over the weekend ( an everlasting tummy bug, YUCK) So it has given me time to just sit with them and do quiet things. They both went back to school today, I hope they will be ok.
Woody was home at the weekend too, which was a nice suprise as we didn't think we would see him till the end of the month and he painted my little shelf for me.
Here's a little before and after
Much better now I really love it.
I have also done some more hexies,
this one is my favourite so far
I'm off to make some more granny squares yay : )
Have a lovely week,
