…but as the weather has been a bit cold and miserably I’ve spent more time than usual in the house this weekend, so I’ve been using the time to do a few frugal crafty makes.
Our house is quite cold, so I’ve been looking at things I can make to help keep us all a bit warmer. My first big project is to make some blinds for our lounge. I bought some material on a market some time ago and this weekend I’ve started making blinds for two windows. I’m going to hunt round the charity shops for a blanket to line them with to give extra insulation. I’m taking pictures as I go, and if it works out, I’ll put up a post about it.
I’ve also started making a big crochet throw for our bed. I did think about having a go at making a quilt, but I don’t really know where to start with quilting. After a quick browse on the internet, I managed to remember how to make granny squares. I’m just doing a little bit every evening or when I have a few minutes spare. The design has just sort of emerged – I had the idea of using blues, greens and white and I’ll just see what happens by putting blocks of 9 together. It’s going to take a while, so here’s my first block.
Until next time, Tawney x
