Quick Cuffs

I recently spotted a lovely image for some simple bracelets or cuffs on Pinterest and have finally managed to find time to try some for myself.

The pattern was very easy to follow (and free!) and it took me no time at all to whip up my first bracelet

There is an option on the pattern to do 2 different sizes of cuff, and this is the larger one.

The smaller one took literally minutes, and is equally as pretty

To give you an idea of the difference in size I photographed them side by side

And this is how they look laid out flat

Lovely aren't they?

You can find the pattern and have a go yourself by following the link below:

Yet another granny square blanket

I've just finished work on a special present - a very girly flower blanket.  Eighty squares of pink, red and lilac loveliness!  Here it is, in all its glory.

It's been so long since my last I have lots of catching up to do!  Things have been relatively quiet on the crochet front, but I have managed to complete a few little projects.

One project which I finished last summer, but forgot to blog about, was these lovely little birdie decorations.  They were really quick and make a lovely "just because" present...especially if you keep one back for yourself.

The pattern is another one of Lucy's at Attic 24.  You can see it by following this link:  Crochet Birds.
