[the new grannies in town]

Here in Brizzy it's been somewhat miserable!
Good news for my newly planted and surprisingly surviving herb garden - not so good for my enthusiasm to venture out of the house.
So I decided to embrace the crappy weather and use it as an opportunity to remain in my pyjamas and uggs a little longer than usual, indulge in wintery comfort food and make some progress on the new granny rugs.
Here's a little of what I'm working on...
Sweet and colourful - fuchsia, yellow, lilac and mint
for my step-mum.
Delicious berry tones - Red, fuchsia, pale pink and green
for my soon to be mother-in-law.

Perfect distraction on a rainy winter's day.
I'll be starting a third soon too for my MUM mum - You can never have too many projects on the go at once!
Stay warm, dry and cosy everyone! Jx


  1. Very pretty and the perfect project for a rainy day! xx

    1. Thanks Anna.
      My body's really not enjoying the Brizzy cold snap but at least I'm getting a few crafty things done! Stay warm! Jx

  2. Jane I love these! My Granny Lucy used to make these all the time... I have two of them from her home in Virginia that I schlepped back to Australia and use for rainy days! They are the PERFECT comfort. Can't wait to see your finished product!

    1. Thanks so much Allison! How special to have your Granny's handmade blankets! I also love the look of them folded and stacked in our bookshelf through summer. Jx

  3. How lovely! Have a wonderful day, Kellie xx


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments.
They truly make my day!
