Yet another work in progress..

Here I am being ably assisted by Harry, assembling those crochet granny squares that were my first foray into the world of hooky.

Someone's up to no good..

It was much easier – and quicker – to assemble this little project than I had anticipated.  Phew!  I made two panels of nine squares each, and joined these panels at three sides with another row of three granny squares.

Watch out, here comes the scarlet woman..

That leaves one side open like so:

Can you tell what it is yet?

And finally, I made two long strips in the same colours, which look suspciously like they might turn into handles..

Have you guessed yet?



A bag!  It’s a project bag!  But it’s not quite finished yet, because I’m going to line it.  And for this, I need to learn a New Thing: namely, interfacing.  So not quite a finished object (you know I’m not very good at those), but it’s definitely on its way, and I’m very excited!

  1. Your cat is gorj! Is he an Abby?

    • He is a Bengal: loud, spotty, slightly high maintenance, a good hunter, very cuddly and – and perfect crochet company! He is very sociable and is known as the ‘village cat’ – he often drops into the local pub for some prawns and a fuss..

      • Oh my, you are hilarious! I’m so jealous! My sister is looking for a friend for her cat. Would you recommend a Bengal? How did you get your fuzzy little buddy?

  2. Hi, this is Veronica from AgujasBlog. I had a giveaway and you are one of the winners! I will send you a care package of several crafty goodies. Enjoy! Here’s a link:

    • Hi there Veronica! How exciting,I am delighted that I have won something! It has come at a great time as I’m recovering from major surgery (that’s why I received this message so late). At least I will be able to spend my recovery doing some lovely crafty activities! :-)

      It’s the first time I’ve ever won a draw like this, so thank you very, very much.

      Best wishes

      • I thought that might have been the case (from reading your blog). I’m glad that my little care package will come at a good time. Don’t forget to send me an email with your mailing address. Send it to Veronica (at) AgujasBlog (dot) com. I’ll ship it right away!
