a block, a daisy and a granny finds a home ...

This week is one that flew by so very quickly - I am very happy that I managed to finish block 3 of the throw - and here it is!

The pattern for the Krista throw was part of a Spotlight promotion and is accessible via the link:!/Spotlightstores/app_371522569543043

Giving a granny ...
One of the practice blocks made in the beginning of this journey as part of the tension test found a new home this week. The teal coloured granny square is made in one of my favourite colours and when I saw that someone was making a blanket in support of a friend trying to quit smoking I knew that this little square would be finding a home soon.

To accompany it I thought a little daisy in the corner will be super cute - and set out to improvise the little flower. As you can see it took me a few trial runs to create a likeable daisy and I'm very happy with the end result and hope that it fills the receiver of the blanket joy every time they look at it!

The final granny ...
I also setup a pintrest board this week and before long found that so many ideas and inspirations clipped there - highly addictive methinks. Spent quite a few hours just looking at pretty crochet pictures and clipping some pretty ones to the board.
In google and pinterst there is one pattern that keeps on popping up - it is a super cute amigurumi koala bear. With Christmas coming up soon and charities calling for toys I'll be trying my hand at making this little bear. Maybe I can even find someone who'll crochet along (CAL) with me and we can double the bear making efforts!
Thats me for this last day of September. Have a very good week - warm pixie smiles coming your way. xo
