More progress

This is the current state of my crocheted Star - there are 78 diamonds in it now. It doesn't look much like a star at the moment, but that'll change soon...

My crocheted Lone Star is progressing nicely - I've finished three rounds now, or 36 diamonds. A lot of them were made while watching the Winter Olympics. It's very hot here in Queensland at the moment and it's so refreshing to watch the ice and snow-based activities!

A few days ago this gorgeous personalised pouch arrived, made by Etsy seller Claire from MontclairMade. Perfect for storing the diamonds until I have enough for the next round!

Crochet Lone Star

If you have been following this blog for a while you will know that I love Lone Star quilts... so it will come as no surprise that I have decided to crochet a Lone Star blanket.

I am using the diamond shapes found in this free pattern to create a six-pointed star, and have once again chosen to go with my favourite palette of blues.
With these diamonds it's also possible to create a Tumbling Blocks or Baby Blocks design (another favourite - see the felted trivets I made in 2013). Maybe that'll be my next project...

I'll leave you with a photo of our sweet hippie dog, Barney:
