Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things hand made. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as 'Colour-Heaven' on Flickr or 'CosyKitty' on Ravelry.
Why not stop a while.....?!!
Tinkering. I like that word. I've spent a lot of time tinkering lately, fiddling, pottering, playing around with ideas for a new hooky project. I acquired a couple of balls of Rowan Pure Wool DK on my birthday last year, and ever since they've been sitting idle in my little craft cubby waiting to be put to good use.
I decided on a whim to create a simple circle within a square motif. There are hundreds of variants of this sort of pattern out there, but I have decided to call my wee version the Isobel motif. I don't have enough yarn for anything bigger than a cushion cover, so a cushion cover it shall be. It should sit nicely on my bed once finished.
I've happily hooked up a few of these squares this week, whilst watching some of the French Open Tennis on TV. I'm really looking forward to the match up between Gael Monfils and Andy Murray tomorrow! Then it's onwards to Wimbledon, hurrah. Can't wait.....
