Some vintage style crochet and the giveaway winner!

I love crochet. Love love love it. And I really like granny squares too. So when I came across this crochet-a-long on this lovely blog apple blossom dreams I just had to join in, even though I'm a bit late to the party! Since this morning I have crocheted 13 roses (there are meant to be 12 but I lost count! But I'm thinking I might make it 16 anyway).
Apologies for the poor photos, I took them in electric light. But don't they look pretty altogether?
I've added leaves to some and cheekily crocheted the white border even though we haven't had that part of the tutorial yet (bad me).
I'm pleased with the colourway too, I think it works really well. I will show you the finished cushion cover when it's all done! It's not too late to join in with the CAL either - just follow my link or click the button on the right and get crocheting!

And lastly, here's the winner of my wee bunny rabbit that was featured in my sock rabbit tutorial last week. Thank you all for your comments, on here and on my facebook page. We put all the names into a hat and drew out ... (drum roll) ... Driftwood!!! Please let me have your address and I'll put him in the post to you :o)

Now I'm off to have a look at Handmade Monday to see what else crafty folk have been up to ... hope you had a lovely day today.


  1. I love this! It's going to make a gorgeous cushion. And the colours are so complementary to each other!

  2. I love the sagey green that you've put them against, sets them off really well.

  3. Welcome to the CAL Jill! Your roses/squares are so pretty! Thank you for be willing to share your photos on the CAL page at

    Please keep me posted on your final result. Can't wait to see it!

  5. Love the roses and they look fab with the background too. It'll be gorgeous x

  6. These look fabulous - the colours are so pretty and it is so different to the usual granny squares. Can't wait to see the finished item.
