Picnic on the Beach Blanket – Week 6

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a lovely long Easter break? Who ate their body weight in chocolate? Or drank way more than they should’ve?

I spent mine decorating, garden tidying and week 6 of my blanket was completed yesterday. Back to work for me tomorrow so I plan to relax and not do much today to mentally prepare ha ha.

This week we added more to the side panels and it was all about the hearts and sunsets. Look at those sunsets I loved making them and they look amazing.

I don’t think there are many weeks left now it’s gone so quickly, but I can’t wait to see what this weeks instalment will be. Roll on Friday.

It’s a short week for most here in the UK this week so enjoy it whatever you’re doing, thanks for reading.

Take Care, Marie x x

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

Beach Combing Cushion

Remember the blanket I did in lockdown? The Beach Combing Blanket CAL from the amazing Coastal Crochet?

Well I had lots of cotton yarn left so I decided to do a matching cushion to sit alongside the blanket on my bed.

I did a simple C2C backing for the cushion and lined it with a old pillow case then stuffed it with fibre fill.

I decided to add a scalloped edging, regretted it once I started but glad I persevered with it.

I picked my favourite square from the whole blanket and and to juggle the colours around a bit but very happy with the outcome.

Thank you for reading

CAL Week 9

Beach Combing Blanket CAL

Happy Sunday all, miserable, grey and cold here today so I hope week 9 will bring a little ray of sunshine to your day.

This week was a continuation of week 8 with more puff stitch waves. As I am now use to how they fall in the rows I flew through this week and really enjoyed them.

Eager to see what Coastal Crochet has in store for us on Friday, can’t wait.

Hope you enjoy the remainder of your weekend and thanks for reading.

Take care and Stay Safe

Love Marie @ Cosy Crochet

CAL Week 8

Beach Combing Blanket

Good evening everyone, I hope you’ve had a good weekend, It has been very hot and sunny here in the UK and I hope you have made the most of it safely.

Well this weeks rows, inspired by waves, 12 puff stitch waves continuing on the top and bottom edges of the blanket. Sounded a breeze this week, how wrong could I have been.

I could not get my rows to line up, no matter what I did, I frogged so many times and had to turn to the group on Facebook for help. Turns out I was right on the first go, GRRRRRR #annoying #lol.

Not many more weeks to go now cannot believe how quick it has gone to be honest, seems like only a couple of weeks ago that we all started. I cannot wait till it’s all finished now though and it’s in my new home.

Roll on week 9, wishing my life away on a blanket here lol, ahhhhh crochet love.

Thanks for reading, Stay Safe

Be back soon

CAL Week 6

Blimey I’m half way through already, no small squares this week, we just made a big one. This weeks is inspired by seashells and saw us all making up all the squares and one edging.

Had quite a bit of frogging this week though, only through my own stupidity frustratingly. Firstly I almost finished the 2nd row of the edging and realised it was the wrong colour, then I ended up with way more shells than I needed on another and realised I clearly cannot count.

Got there in the end though, I laid it out once I’d finished to take the picture for today’s blog and had to marvel at the amount of work involved so far. You don’t realise when you’re making it because you get lost in the pattern. The colours just hit you and pop.

It’s starting to get heavy now it’s all coming together and can’t wait for next week, Loving it.

Hope you have a great Sunday everyone.

Take care and Stay Safe and Alert.

Week 2

Happy Sunday, I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather safely.

So Friday saw the second week released of the CAL I started last week. I was up and out of bed straight away as I had something to get up for, PC on, E-mail opened, Pattern Downloaded, Printing in process. I don’t think my eyes had even opened properly.

A quick read through the pattern revealed “No Crab Stitch” phew, also I need to make two squares this week YAY!

What a great start to this week, ammonite, and as you are working it round then start adding colours you can literally visualise it on the beach.

I won’t bore you anymore and let you look at both my squares, loved this week and cannot wait till Friday. I might do another one alongside it made up of my yarn stash, maybe it will clear out some bit’s and bobs laying around.

Enjoy the rest of your lovely Sunday, Thanks for reading and Take Care.
