March update

Well, what have I been doing since my last blog?  I have been working on a new blanket in maroon and cream, edged with grey.  Unfortunately, I ran out of grey wool for the edging and the replacement wool I re-ordered was too light.  Fortunately, after a trawl around the local wool shops, I managed to get a match.  What I discovered when joining the squares together was that I had six too many - so I probably did had enough grey wool to start with.  Oh well, never mind, I have the beginnings of another blanket - but not quite yet. 

Here is a photo of the finished piece.

February 2014

The newest edition to JulieAnnR Designs is this blanket, crocheted in two shades of lilac with a grey border.  It does take a long time to make one blanket, hence the delay in adding new stock.

I have also been experimenting with some flower corsages /brooches.  The two below started out as squares for another blanket, but looked so pretty that I made them into brooches instead.
