Next Project

Well I have finally started my next project. I am making a blanket in tunisian crochet. It took me a while to find out how to do this kind of crochet.  I eventually downloaded a great book to my kindle called Learn Tunisian Crochet by Tara Cousins. It is a really good tutorial and teaches six different stiches, with step by step instructions.  I found it very easy to follow and would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn this type of crochet.

I have crocheted a few cushion backs in tunisian crochet, and really think they give a lovely finish to the cushion.



Here is my latest blanket - it has taken me several days to get this far, so I think it will be several weeks before it is complete!

Dog Sitting and Opening an Instagram Account

I have been dog sitting this weekend.  Here is Scruffy looking all relaxed.  I think he likes coming here as he gets lots of walks and games.



I have just set up an Instagram account. I must admit that I didn't have a clue how to use it but actually it is a lot easier than I thought it would be. In fact I much prefer it to Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. The only problem I have is that photos have to be uploaded from my phone and most of my photos are on my computer.

I find taking photos on my phone quite difficult. I can't seem to hold my phone steady whilst pressing the screen and most of my shots end up out of focus. Something I will have to address if I want lovely, sharp photos on my Instagram site.  Here is my link https://www.instagram.com/julieannr75/
