Hooky Happiness in the Sun

What are sunny Easter Weekends for?  Sitting outside with my wool and crochet hook.  It seems silly to be making a blanket as the summer months are gradually creeping nearer but it is also an activity which is easily done outside under an umbrella.  Above a little colour planning with the help of my daughter.
Yarn storage.
It is getting there and I have decided to add a black edging and join as I go to spur me on.
More details on this WIP and other projects on my blog HERE
I have also recently joined Instagram as well with the same title and my little blue flower logo.  
See you there.

Winding yarn with an electric hand mixer

Is this the best hack for a crocheter? This is going to save me time and all the frustration of winding yarn.

From ugly chair to cute chair! New improved reading corner

I found this chair in my in-law's attic and thought it would be perfect for my daughter's reading corner because 2 people can squeeze in it and it is very comfortable. Only problem was it is very ugly! There are pen stains and worn out patches where holes are starting to form. I almost thought of leaving it until I bought some nice bright yarn and started making a new granny square blanket for it.

Here is the same chair all pretty with the granny square blanket and a cute patchwork pillow I made using Batik print fabric. We love siting here to read. At nights I also light LED candles and fairy lights and to make reading time really magical.

If any of you crocheter's have children and are looking for play related articles and tutorials, I have started a new blog 'We Are Happy Playing' I hope to put up some crochet patterns related to children's games soon.
