Chunky Blanket

Happy Monday readers!

I hope you’ve had a great weekend, it has been productive here! I have told you before about the Lottie and Albert vlog that I watch on Youtube. I’ve had my eyes for a while on her chunky rainbow blanket and I took advantage of a sale at one of our craft store to buy heaps of acrylic yarn for $2 each! Lindsey recommends 6 balls of yarn and I also got myself a 20mm crochet hook before happily starting my blanket!

I loved working on it, it was just super fast! This is a baby size blanket, but you could easily adjust it to make it bigger by starting with a longer chain. I’ve decided to make tassels instead of pompoms too, I love how they turned out.

How cute is it? This is definitely a good size for a baby blanket, but it may be a bit small otherwise, except maybe for a lap blanket (that’s what I’m using it for, as we don’t have a baby 😅)

As promised, here is a picture of the ornament I’ve made for my nana too, I think it turned out great! I had lots of fun making it, so it was a complete win in my books 😊

I hope you all have a great week and that your Christmas preparations are going smoothly too!

February SAL with Helene

Hello readers!

I just realised that I forgot to post yesterday evening! Whoops 😬 

February is over and so far I’m managing to keep up with the SAL from Hélène et Mahélia

Here is my February month, those little foxes are just too cute!


And I’ve also made a little ornament to go with my owl one. I will be crocheting a link to put all this year’s ornaments on and make a bunting with all those cute little forest critters 🙂


Until next time!

Platypus ornament

Happy Friday crafters! 

This week I’ve been super busy (for a change!). I was on the beautiful Heron Island, south of the Great Barrier Reef. 


I was very inspired by the beautiful landscape there and I started working with the rainbow yarn I got from Salamanca, Tasmania, which I’ll show you next week 😊

But for now, I have finished my platypus ornament, it turned out so so cute! I backed it with black felt and it has a loop to hang it in a Christmas tree. 


I think I’ll be doing more of those in the near future, with Christmas in a few months only 😊

Have a great weekend!
