This is my latest amigurumi. It is supposed to be a dog. Not necessarily the mouse/dog/AT AT walker hybrid creation that you see here.

Hello. The ripple got abandoned. I started again . That version got abandoned. I didn't crochet for ages. Then I started the cosy blanket from Attic 24. For Lent I have given something up and taken something up. I have given up snacking between meals and taken up getting a row of colour on my blanket a night. I am liking the fact that this means in 40 days. It could be finished. I like my crochet to have a memory. My big stripe is dedicated to all seven series of The Shield. Every time I look at it I think ' corrupt policing'.
In other news I have been thinking about Instagram. Most of the bloggers in my sidebar are now on Instagram and until I found them again I didn't realise how much I missed them. A photo and a couple of lines of text are appealing to me. Sometimes blogging seems too complicated. Like now, I can't find how to link to Attic 24 on the iPad. Luddite.

I went a bit a OTT with the mandala love in the summer! I sent my Yarndale one off and I did find homes for the others. And I ended up making more as my mum wanted some more. I loved the fact that they were pretty and quick. Plus I could sit in the garden with a cup of tea and look at the garden instead of actually gardening .
Here it is in all its unfinished glory. I think I have patchwork block as it has taken me years ( and years) and I have finally admitted to myself ( and anyone who will listen/is interested) that I have a mental block about finishing it. I am going to finish it this year and back it onto the purple sheet and have it as a bedspread. I was going to edge it up straight but a friend suggested I leave the edges as they are and just back it and I quite like that idea. Once I get into it, I don't think it should take me long. The nightmare will be making the edges straight. She says/ hopes.
