A block for my granny squares….

As I’m sure you’re aware if you follow this blog, I am a fan of crocheting. I find it very relaxing to do and like that you can take it anywhere.
I had been making some simple little granny squares, in the car on long journeys to keep me awake and in front of the TV to stop me snacking (and keep me awake)!

Once I finished up my wool I decided to do one more round with another colour and to do this around all the squares I had so far completed.

Sadly I ran out of that one colour so it’s now two! Note to self – keep the paper wrapping, it makes getting another ball of wool to match oh so much easier!
Loveknitting tried to help me but sadly I have had to admit defeat.

As there were quite a few I thought I’d look into getting a former or block shaper to keep them nice and uniform.
My husband offered to make me one and here it is!

He said I should give it a coat of varnish, I was about to when I thought it might be fun to decorate it first…

It is a scrap of wood – hence the slight marks … I decided they added rustic charm… So the first thing I did was to start doodling rosebuds and just carried on.

I added loopy stems and leaves and then started to colour them in…

I coloured in the leaves in two shades of green and once finished I added a coat of this varnish which dries very quickly…

and now it’s almost full, unfortunately my next project has larger squares so I may have to get that peg board after all (don’t tell!)
