Granny news


I have been working with a really lovely lady who has ambitions to grow a business in granny square crochet.  Her first ventures are in children's furnishings but before all that I am teaching her to crochet.  She is a really quick study so it shouldn't take long.  In the mean-time I am making up prototypes for her in her chosen yarn.  

Project number one is a cushion pad for the top of an antique wooden toybox.    I finished today.  Her colour choices are gorgeous as is the yarn (Artesano Aran).  I am submitting it as 2 of my granny-a-day ... it is double sided after all!!!

Also,  in celebration of the Jubilee this week, I am giving away my Union Jack bunting pattern to fellow granny-a-day crocheters.  Just put a link to where you are posting your granny-a-day pics in the comment box (or email me - see contact tab above) with an email address and I will send you the PDF.   Have fun at your street party, pageant, fayre etc 


  1. I would love the Union Jack Bunting pattern, although I am not from the UK. If you will accept, I am in the FB GAD group. Can you post it there?

  2. Love the Union Jack bunting! I wonder if anyone will notice when I sneak it into my 4th of July granny blanket? heh heh heh.

  3. Of course not! But now you have me working on a Stars and Stripes version ...
