and show what we have made from scraps. 

Some of you will know that Mrs Snail (The Snail of Happiness) is opening a shop which will specialise in mending supplies and pre-loved craft materials and equipment. In a recent post she requested colourful items made from scrap to decorate the shop and show what could be done with left over materials. So before I went to see her and help her get the shop ready I quickly finished a small blanket I have been working on for ages so I could take it with me as a gift for her new adventure. A collection of orphan blocks, ‘have a go at a new pattern’ squares and other such odd bits of crochet all made using the small balls of yarn left from bigger projects. I deliberately made it super random trying to do each round in a different colour!

    Just lovely, and exactly what’s needed to show that mending and scraps are not at all dull and boring!

      Thank you! It was quite warm over my knees while I was putting it all together.

      I am not sure how long it took because it has been so long in the making! But most of the squares were made for another reason so that time hardly counts.

    lovely, colourful gift, hope it encourages customers to have a go using scraps. Like Dawn, I wish I was close to the Haveabashery – but I might be in deep trouble!

      I love the idea of being able to go there but suspect I will buy more than I donate!
