I went back to basics over the last couple of weeks... and back to the old classic granny square! I got a bit bored of them but thought i would give them another go to make a blanket for my stall. Loads of people seem to still love these classic grannies and you cant really go wrong with them!
I also branched out and used Pinks!! Can you believe it! I hate pink. With a passion. But once again, LOADS of people love it, especially mums with little girls. So i surrendered to the power of the pink! I tried a different way of joining the squares this time too. It kind of makes a ridge along the joins and i quite like it. It adds a bit of dimension to the blanket.
So this one is getting packed up and put in the pile for the spring fair, only 3 weeks to go and i feel like i still have loads to do! However, i am naughty and have been spending my afternoon doing other things....
...good things i think! After much nagging from my sister, i have created a FaceBook page for Sharky Knows. I seem to have adopted 'Sharky Knows' as the brand name for my crafty projects and now not only does it have a blog, it has a facebook page. Don't ask me how i did it, i just seemed to find my way through... whether anyone will 'Like' it i don't know but it was worth a shot. My sister has been sending me ideas for baby things to make (she is now a mother of two beautiful babies, age 3 months and 2 years), and thought it would be a great idea to set up a page where i could sell the items i make. I'll let you know how i get on. I suppose with all these kind of things it takes time to build it up and get your name out there. I am very impatient though and want IMMEDIATE results.
Well i hope you are enjoying this gorgeous weekend. We had friends over last night and went for a walk with them and their 2 pugs this morning. The sun is actually shining in north devon! I have a couple more blankets to show you soon, and will keep you posted with how the facebook page goes!
