Hexies And Rabbits.

Posted on | March 28, 2017 | 16 Comments

No quilt pictures today – but I am in the middle of quilting another one!

Today is all about yarn and crochet hooks. I have two finished items.

The first is a small blanket – probably lap sized throw.

Lots of crocheted hexagons made first and then all crocheted together with white yarn. It took me ages because I still feel like a beginner, but I made it to the finish line. It is very warm and snugly so will be enjoyed in a month or two when the nights are cooler.

And the second item is a crocheted bunny. Not quite as simple as  I thought it would be, but again I took my time and was able to finish it. This one will be used as a baby gift.

There are dozens of things I would like to crochet, but at the speed I work, I will have to be selective.

Not a lot else, but I do have news of my quilt parcel. It arrived safe and sound at its destination. It only took five days from Australia to the USA. ( I know my Aussie friends will laugh at this because we can’t even get a letter from one suburb to the next in that time!). I ended up sending it standard post, with tracking and I insured it. So pleased to have it there safe and sound.

We are finally having some Autumn weather here to enjoy, but no signs of any Autumn leaves here yet.

Cheers, Karen

  • Mary @ Fleur de Lis Quilts says: Your crocheted blanket looks very warm and snuggly. Those are such pretty colors and that white really helps them to stand out. My favorite those is that precious bunny. There's no doubt that some lucky baby will love it. Expect to see it in tatters from being dragged around and loved, but isn't that the best compliment?
  • Suz says: Is there no end to your talent Karen! Love the blanket and the bunny! If you saw my efforts at crocheting you would not class yourself as a beginner! Yes, good old Australia post is a puzzle to us all. My templates for the new Jen Kingwell BOM were sent from Gardenvale on Friday and arrived today. I'm thinking I could have walked there and back in that time!
