 Time flies... already more than a year since I last came to my blog!!!

For me, as for everybody, life was not easy lately... and all those events brought many changes in our way of life.

However good things also happened : I now have five wonderful grand children, four boys and a girl and I mainly sew for them and for the family newborns. There are so many pleasant projects to create for babys, and they are so quickly done! It's such a pleasure to have a quick result. Therefore I am not working on big quilts anymore. 

I did several baby quilts, and small items such as soft toys and bed accessories, as you can see on the above pictures.

Sewing makes us forget all (or almost) the troubles of life!! 😀

All those above items can be bought from my new Etsy shop yayaCousette CLICK

Giant Granny Square Progress

Here is the progress of my giant granny square blanket, as promised yesterday. As I said in my previous post,  I found my inspiration watching the Netflix last season of The Crown series. It was interesting and quite astonishing to see such a blanket in the living room of the sister's queen : a whimsy touch in a classical traditional decor I guess, in accordance with the unconventional personality of the sister's queen.

I wish I could progress more in my crochet but I had other priorities, such as housework and garden duties : gathering the fallen leaves in the front garden, and then welcoming my grand children. We shall start soon baking cookies!

In the last picture my crochet square is displayed on the first quilt I made, an Eight Point Star pattern.

You can buy this blanket from my Etsy shop : pochonsEtcomptines

Happy Mail!

 Granny Square

At last a post delivery yesterday : my order from UK placed one month ago... 
After opening the parcel I started immediately my new crochet project : another giant granny square blanket inspired by the Netflix series The Crown! Pictures and explanations in my next post... 

So happy with my new yarns! The colors are faithful to the pictures of the site. I like as well the texture : soft but not heavy. There is always a kind of anxiety when ordering without seeing and touching the product, but in the present case I was not disappointed. I use a crochet number 4.5.

Going back to my crocheting... 

I will show you the progress tomorrow.
