Ten more Grannies!

I found some more scraps of yarn at the Charity Shop so I made ten more crochet Granny squares.
All the colours were rather dark the day I rummaged though the box of yarn but I think these squares would work well in a man's blanket so I'll be posting these to Jan in Australia tomorrow.

On their way to Australia

Whilst I've been on holiday in NZ I have used up scraps of fabric to make 18 x 10.5" square QAYG string blocks and 30 crochet Granny Squares.

                                       These are the last 8 I made in the last few days.

 I love making them all. Hope Jan can use them in her charity QAYG Quilts and crocheted blankets. 
She supports so many worthwhile causes it's been a pleasure to send her donation blocks over the past few years.
Have a look at her blog: somanyquiltstoolittletime
Perhaps you can send Jan some donations too, even a top or quilt?

A quilt finish - FIRST for 2019

I finished a small baby quilt and labeled it ready for gifting.

Bright colours, suitable for either a boy or girl. Baby is not due for some time yet but we need to gift it to baby's Mum before we travel home.

It measures 34" square so ideal for a Play Mat, as a cover for the pushchair or snuggle time.

All hand quilted with Perle threads, using blue and green threads on alternate blocks.
