Hi everyone and a warm welcome to this weeks Handmade Monday, our link up. It's a place for creative bloggers to share their creative projects, tutorials and recipes and a great way to browse for some new ideas.
I've had fun this week doing some special commission embroideries for a friend, she'd seen something online and asked if I could make her something similar. She's a very sweary lady so this is not at all family friendly, hence the editing. Simple stitches but fun to do. They just need popping into a hoop and they'll be ready to hand over.
Here are the features from last week's Handmade Monday. I've picked a couple of blankets this week, one knit and one crochet.
The Blue Elephants shared this beautiful cable blanket/throw pattern. I love cable knits and it was always a favourite of my mum's.
This crochet blanket from Haekelfieber Austria is so beautiful and such a fun technique. You crochet the white base first then add the colour afterwards.
Congratulations to you both. there is a "YAY I was featured" button for your blog over here if you want to add one to your blog :-)
Handmade Monday has a small but friendly little Facebook group for bloggers who link up their ideas here regularly. If you'd like to join us you'd be welcome. It's not a high pressure, rules filled group but if we come across something that's helped us in our blogging lives we share it in the group.
Handmade Monday is all about building a crafting community, we most definitely are better together, so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. Share some of your favourites on your social media maybe and leave a nice comment or two.
Let's support one another ^_^
