Picnic on the Beach Blanket – Week 4

Happy Saturday hope you’re all well and safe?
That’s another week done and how much fun was this , creating Sand Castles, kites and shells. Three key things on the beach right? Can you see them? was a fiddly week but well worth it.

I think I can figure out what’s coming up next week, can you? If I’m right then OMG all those ends x 4 *sigh*

Even so I cannot wait, roll on Friday, we seem to flying through it this year which is good as I am so looking forward to finishing and getting it ready for camping trips as soon as we can again.

I hope you are enjoying the journey as much as me, thank you for reading, enjoy your weekend.
Take care, Marie x x x

Picnic on the Beach Blanket Week 3

Evening all, I was late starting this weeks instalment. Had emergency vet trips all weekend so didn’t get chance to print off the pattern until Sunday to make a start.
Doggie is all well and on the mend now, thankfully, in case you were wondering.

So week 3 is all about picnic food and who would have thought you could create food with yarn in a blanket. Thank you Coastal Crochet you really do excel every year.
We have apples, blackberries and cupcakes, can you see them?

Absolutely loved creating this weeks delicious delights, doesn’t it look fabulous?
Roll on Friday for week 4 can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

Take care and thank you for reading.

Picnic on the Beach Blanket Week 1

I am a little late on my blog catch ups on this one this year, yes it is that time again for the annual crochet along with Coastal Crochet. I love Eleonora’s CALs because I always learn something new and week 1 was no exception. This year the option of colours was summer or Autumn so I opted for Autumn as it has my favourite colour in, can you guess it?

Just look at this Tunisian Entrelac crocheted gingham square to start off this years CAL. So yes you could say I learnt something new straight away.
I was a little worried as I have never really tried Tunisian crochet until recently with not great results I have to confess. I shouldn’t have been, She always does great tutorial videos to support each of her blankets, so I watched studied and off I went.

I looks so effective doesn’t it? But oh my goodness look at all those ends, I think it took longer to weave all those in than it did the whole square itself.

I did make quite a big error on one row but by the time I’d noticed it I’d almost done so I wasn’t frogging it. I wonder if anyone spots it?

Basket Weave (Ugh) love the effect, it hates me. I always lose my way with it and forget to change direction and always end up re doing it and yes this time was no exception. Looks great though and week 2 is already complete so blog will follow soon.

Thank you for reading and watch this space for week 2.
Love you all
