Shall we have another go?


Life is on the up here in Stocki Land....

My parents are regaining their independence
 little by little every day and I am about to 
reopen my little online yarn shop

I am also going to start selling some
 of the things I have been making this
 summer on Folksy... or Etsy...
.....not sure which yet! 

How best to launch this new beginning then? 

Do you remember this....

 

At about this time last year we embarked
 on the 'Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012'... 

 
It went so well that your crochet entries 
came in from 11 countries: 
Australia,England,Germany,Holland,
Ireland, Italy, Lebanon, New Zealand, 
South Africa, USA and Wales! .



Our blanket grew and grew....





 Eventually in spring of this year, 

the blanket was complete..


Lucky, lucky Barbina of 
was the lucky winner and the 
blanket went to it's new home 
in Germany.

That was all in April / May time...

Since then I have rarely blogged - 
my life has been busy with caring...

So what do you think? 

Shall we have another go? 


I'm ready if you are!

  3. You are a very brave/nutty lady (delete as appropriate). All those squares to sew together again! I'm definitely in, I so enjoyed it last time and you did a fab job of rallying everyone, organising and of course as previously mentioned the mammoth job of putting it together.

    Soooo happy to hear things are on the up, and what a great idea to sell some of your wares...clever you!

  9. Woop, woop, I've already got some squares made! I was trying out some new patterns and thought I might as well make them in cotton just in case you were kind (insane) enough to repeat the process.
    Lovely to have you back, I'm so glad things are on the up.
