Sore Throat...but I got rid of the Granny Square monsters....

Hello Ladies...

Well here we are nearly at the end of another week, and I have to say me and The Sue are cream crackered, plus I have a sore throat to boot but its not all bad news.

The news my dear blogging chums is that I have cracked granny squares! Its only taken me nearly 3 weeks of practicing but its clicked. Thankyou for your words of encouragement, cause if anything I wanted to show you that Its possible, even someone like me who isn't naturally gifted really with a needle and thread... can do it xxx

So anyway, I hope you all find yourselves well in these snowy cold days...and ready for another weekend.

Thought I would also leave you a picture of the LOVELY CK bag I got for Christmas xxx

Love Sam xx

Congrats on mastering the granny square!! I love the soft colours you used. The CK bad is gorgeous too - very envious!

We had lots of snow here overnight - all schools closed, so both kids at home today. Tom's not very keen on the deep snow, in fact, he looks a bit depressed, bless him! Even the post man couldn't make it today - we can't wait for your little surprise to arrive!

Well done on the granny square... it takes time to get it right. My first few cushions are rubbish when I look at them now!!
It's snowing here ... I'm so excited!!!!! I haven't looked out the window for 10mins 'cos I'm afraid it will have stopped!! It was coming down so heavy everything was covered very quickly ..... yipee!!!! :)

Great grannies - its taken me about the same length of time and I'm still not sure that I am slip stitching into the right bit

Thanks again for my prezzies - love the bag

Well done on the granny squares, that one is lush! Hope your bad throat is better soon, if it hangs on promise you'll go to the docs because I had mine a month before penicillin finally shifted it and I wondered why I'd waited so long :-S

Divine bag, I'm v jealous! Mel xxx

Wonderful. I remember the feeling of euphoria I felt when I finally "got" it.

Lovely and do you have a grandiose plan for your new skills?
