Poorly Person

I have been a poorly person this week which resulted in me having to take a couple of days off work. Mixed blessing really. One the one hand it was nice to lay under the duvet all day but was too ill to even pick up a hook or a book for that matter. The sickness bug has done a full round here at the Fairyglade, giving each of us a seperate dose just to keep things fair. However, all is better now and we are raring to go.

This weekend has been a bit of a catch up, and of course that means that my crochet has been top of the list.

Oh what joy! Single granny's...............


Piles of grannies.....................................


Mounds of grannies.............................................



Towering grannies........................................................

And finally, when divided into two sections, two cushions of grannies!!!



I can't describe how happy these little squares make me feel. I simply love looking at them, moving them around each other to see what goes with what, feeling the softness of the Rowan wool which is a dream to work with, if a little expensive....

With that in mind I have cleared out the littlest fairy's wardrobe and placed all her pretties on ebay. Don't be alarmed, I have left her one or two bits to wear, bless her.

(If you are interested my ID is Gretagrouch. On the home page, click on feedback forum at the bottom, enter my named ID and bob's your uncle!)

I have chosen some lovely Debbie Bliss wool for my swap partner, Alessandra over at Just Be Happy. Not sure how I will manage to stop myself eating the chocolate part of the swap now that I am feeling better. Two seperate bars of the yummy stuff have mysteriously disappeared in the last week..have you seen them? No one is owning up here, and a this rate she will be receiving the most expensive bar of Cadbury's in the known universe!!

Time for bed now, feeling very weary now Will leave you with another picture of my grannies...............

We don't have Rowan here, bu I'm still sending you 100% wool, I hope you like it!
I had to hide the chocolate I bought for you, or it would magically disappear too! hehe
Have a great week!

I am so glad all of the fairies are feeling much better now. This swap is exciting. I picked out the yarn for my partner but I have to actually purchase it. :-D

I hope you are all fully recovered, lots of chocolate is very necessary during and after any poorly time! Your granny pile is amazing, I can't wait to see the end results.

Take care, hugs Debs xxx

How pretty! I just found your blog by the way. I am going to try to find a lesson on granny squares via Youtube. I knew how to make them once and I'd like to make piles of pinkness like yours. I'm glad you are well now. I loved how you wrote "a hook or a book"!

Hope your feeling better now, lovely granny squares! xxx

I've just realised what it is I like about your crochet lady - it is your use of colour. You are a natural at matching up colours and tones.
