Well hello everyone! Goodness me things have been hectic this last week and a bit. Feels like I've been M.I.A. or should that be A.W.O.L? Either way, I've returned to find an abundance of wonderful messages, and a flurry of lovely new followers.
Thank you all SO much! x x x x x
On the hooky front, I've (yet again) found myself going 'cuckoo' for colour! I had a scoot through my 'go to' book for inspiration, Jan Eatons' 200 crochet blocks, and stopped on Page 76. I was instantly drawn to this lovely Sunray pattern, one, because it looked doable, and two, because it had a sunny theme. I did a tester in blue first, framing it in White. You may remember seeing it sneak into the frame in my last post.
My intention was to use a light colour for framing, but because I have a stash of Navy cotton to use up, I decided to go with that instead. I must admit I had my reservations about using a dark colour, but it's somewhat grown on me. Especially as it allows the colours to really 'pop'. What do you think?
Seeing as I've gone a bit bonkers for brights this week, I thought I'd add in a picture of some of my colourful crochet cushions, all sitting happily together. Each one part of my crocheting journey, all just waiting to be lovingly placed into that Split Screen V-Dub I've got my heart set on.
Well, a girl can dream can't she............?

Love the idea of an old camper full of crochet cushions. My Mum and Dad have a modern VW camper that I am busy making crochet cushions for. Not sure they appreciate it but I think it looks great ;-)
Beautiful pictures! I love your colourful blog xxxReplyDelete
Wonderful colourful crochet - brightens up my day, thanks for sharing xxReplyDelete
Wow Sharron, the single blocks of bright colour look very effective (worked in Catania cotton?). You've inspired me to try something different from the traditional clustered granny square (although I have several WIPs as it is, but I need to do something with the mountain of yarn I can't seem to stop buying!).ReplyDelete
Looking forward to your next post.
Amazing! So beautiful!ReplyDelete
Haha.... a split screen v-dub?? It's a good thing you have that picture there, never heard of it that way!ReplyDelete
Stunning pallette of colours, and as always.....LoVE IT!!
Wow! All so lovely and colourful! Very cheery!ReplyDelete
I really like the blocks edged in navy; your work is always so meticulously neat, I don't know how you do it! Your crochet is always beautiful xReplyDelete
gorgeous. just gorgeous!!ReplyDelete
Your work is so flat and neat. It is nice to see blocks that are not too flowery, I like those.ReplyDelete
Such gorgeous colours, I like the simplicity of the new blocks. Your work is always beautiful. Sarah xReplyDelete
Hi Annie, a very colourful and clean design! it's just so neat, I wonder if you have blocked it?! and yes camper van would be lovely! Heather xReplyDelete
I love reading your posts as they are always so bright, colourful, neat and inspirational. I love all your cushions, in fact any of your work. Take care. Chel xReplyDelete
Wow! Love the colours and I think the navy works really well to make the colours pop. I'm off to have a look at page 76! :-) How have you managed to get them joined so neat, have you stitched or crocheted them together? xxReplyDelete
These are very pretty, needless to say your color combination works very well but then it always has .......... Is this done or will you be adding more to this?ReplyDelete
The new squares are fabulous with gorgeous bright colours.ReplyDelete
And, I love the navy joining colour.
I am SO SO pleased you joined the blogging community. I asked you early last year (maybe the previous year!) if you had a blog because I am simply in awe of your crochet and love to follow it. Now here you are! Definitely on my must read list! xReplyDelete
I just have to write and introduce myself as Im loving your blog sooooo much! My name is Heather, I am The Patchwork Heart on fb and IG. I do have a blog but am not a very frquent blogger. I have just found you and am loving your work! We are very similar in our makes and likes! Just wonder if you are on fb or IG?ReplyDelete
How did you do the joining of the squaresReplyDelete
OH wow...this is stunning. I think having the darker border really makes the colors pop more so than a lighter color border would. And, as usual, your colors are phenomenal. Thanks for sharing!! :)ReplyDelete
