Not much has been happening. However still managed a few crochet stitches. Experimenting with different stitches in this 2 tone throw rug. Now onto the border and a twisted 2 tone border to top it off.
It’s time to come together and share our scrappy projects. Hosted by Kate and her friend Gun in Sweden. The list of talented bloggers at the end of this will delight you with creativity. Crochet has my craft mojo lately and perfect weather for it.
My scrap project, resulted from left overs of bulk yarn purchase. What to do with this vibrant variegated yarn. The 4 x 4 rainbow radiating granny of course.
Flat join mattress stitch with chain stitch centre, to make it nice and flat.
The Antartic Cold Chill Blast has arrived to mark another season change. June in the land of Oz, the southern end has begun. We have had off and on unseasonably sunny and warm days. Perfect weather to sit under a rug and crochet project.
I am still crocheting and have made 4 granny triangles, using my scrap yarn. It is diffusing the vibrancy of the rainbow yarn and making it sing.
They will be stitched on the side in this format to create a radiant 🌈. Then I will decide on a border.
My scrap happy May journey, utilises yarn left overs, some large and one gifted. I had leftover rainbow yarn. Tried several designs, frogged several times. Until The lovely ladies in Australia Crochet facebook page suggested a granny triangle.
Lots more rows and 3 triangles to go to become a prettier rainbow version. Surplus cream, from baby throws complete this piece.
Then a full 3 ply cake of variegated green. Half knitted by a friend who ripped it out as too dark for her liking. I am using the Ravelry free pattern Grace. Once complete it will go back to my friend to keep, gift, donate to local seniors club for a raffle prize perhaps. Its been a fun pattern so far.
That’s it for now. Do go checkout the talents of my fellow ScrapHappy bloggers.
Take care 💜 Debbierose

You may recall last month I knitted my 1st Adult Beanie. My beanie journey continues as the 1st fitted its recipient perfectly. To add to the recipients collection more beautiful bamboo and one in BMW Cotton. Then a local craft store had faux fur pom poms and denim flowers on sale, the perfect finishing for the next beanie batch. The last in Be Seen Be Safe Orange, a special request for a low bun slot beanie. It was fun tweaking 2 patterns, merging to create this bright beanie. And a quick poppy for Anzac Day.
Then I broke out my circular needles to whip up a beanie in Lion Truboo, so soft it was difficult to knit with my arthritis. The yarn slipping smoothly across and off my needles. With a 4×4 basket rib. Gifted today to a dear friend.
Scrap Happy Time. Time to share the thoughts and treasurers created with scraps/left overs in my craft stash.
Hosted by the dynamic duo Kate & Gun. All those mentioned in the links below have Fab blogs to check out.
Time to create a block book. A large piece if sewing notions fabric for the body, and left over Pink breast cancer binding from my girly girl quilt. I have been saving batting off cuts and finally have enough. The page separator are usually interfacing or muslin, however I had the taffeta left over from my debutante outfit taking up valuable space, and in need of purpose. My overlocker needs to come out of hiding to neaten up the inserts.
I have included a picture of my gorgeous Mum and I at my Senior Deb Ball, in my 3 piece taffeta suit/dress. I decided on a top with peplum, floor lenght shirt and a 2nd knee length skirt to change into later in the evening. Ahh the good old days, Perms and smiles around.
Ploughing through my embroidery draw, a quilters poem stitched ???? Years ago. Perfect for the cover. Experimented with a flange adding a pop of green. Then dabbling in my first machine embroidery quilting (poorly) adding adding some decorative stitches. Not sure if i will unpick and try to straighten it up plus I still need to applique the poem on as I didn’t want to machine it.
