YAY! Go granny!

One thing I just love the look of, but couldn't get the hang of for some reason, was the granny square.  However, after managing to complete my doily I decided to give it another try and here are the results!

I don't think my tension matches the pattern, but the good thing is, they are all more or less the same size, so at least they match each other!
I have to have a look at sewing in all the loose threads of course, as it was really a case of trial and error with changing colours.  My pattern seemed to assume I knew how to do that, but it seems to have worked out ok, I just need to get rid of the ends.
I really enjoyed doing these and plan to carry on adding to the collection between other projects.  I do have a vague idea of what I'd like to do with them, but I'm not sure I'll be able to figure it out yet. I might be asking advice!

Also, a tiny bit of progress on my stitching.

Not alot I know, but I do plan to crack on with this as I'd like to bully Steve into getting this and the home one framed and up on the wall pretty soon if possible.

Anyhow, I'm off to make a cup of tea and sit to help Joe with the Bible reading he has this week. Psalm 72: 1 - 20. Then I have to walk the dog and do some housework. 
I really fancy making some cakes as well today, but not sure if I'll have time.  We'll see. Not sure it would be helpful diet wise either, but Joe loves to bake, so might just have to be brave!

Hope you all have a great day!



  1. nice colours on granny square! Love the cross stitch in progress!

  2. I'm not a knitter, but I think your granny squares look wonderful! The colors are so pretty. The cross stitch is coming along nicely as well.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
