peach blossom and sea breeze

Just a quick little post to show you a couple of finished projects…

Who knew it would take me 14 crocheted flowers before I found one I liked? I won’t tell you how long it took me to decide on the arrangement of them either! But I’m pleased that I fluffed about with them so long as I think the finished blanket looks quite sweet… and it could have easily gone the other way. There’s just the one bunch of flowers on this blanket in the corner. The body of the blanket is blanket stitch and I took the edge out with a couple of rows of a lacey type chain stitch then a few rows of single crochet, finished with a delicate little picot.

I’m totally in love with this colour combination. The grey acts like a neutral colour against a pop of blue green colours. It looks so fresh and colourful, yet not too bright and in your face. If a refreshing sea breeze had colours, I reckon they’d be like these. Of course you can’t go wrong with the classic granny stitch either. I love a basic stitch like this to show off the colours and stripes in this blanket. There’s a border at the top and the bottom of colours, plus at the top there’s a row of single crochet in each colour to finish it.

Wow… 2 projects down, it’s been a busy week in the crochet department! These blankets are both for an order that I’m super excited about. Now I can start some new projects I’ve been itching to get to, and I just love that feeling. Time to go ponder over some potential yarn colours and ideas…

Hope your days are filled with refreshing sea breezes, pretty peach blossoms and plenty of time to ponder your next crafty project.
