I've been collecting and sharing a few calm and peaceful maker moments and sharing those in my new 'Quiet Moments' vlog videos.  I'm hoping to create a few relaxing and soothing minutes for you to enjoy.  
Here's the ones I have made so far if you'd like to take a look...

  1. Hello Sandra.

    I am currently crocheting your Faded Painted Roses blanket. I fell in love with this as soon as I saw a picture of it, and had to start it, even though i already have another large project on the go!

    I find I am in need of a little help however.

    I am extending it to 10x12 squares and have had a lot of fun deciding on the colour combinations. I bought yarn as per your original pattern but wondered if this will be adequate to complete the slightly longer border and additional joins. I am planning an additional 5 squares using parchment and stone, and 2 of silver. In addition I have used pale rose in one additional square, but think it unlikely that this will cause a problem as far as yarn usage.

    I have used your yardage guide in the pattern to try and work out whether I will have enough, especially of the silver (even going to the extent of brushing up my use of mathematical simultaneous equations (sad, I know)), but am getting nowhere fast. I'd rather buy additional yarn sooner than later to allow for dye matching, so don't want to wait until I find I've nearly run out to order more.

    Do you think i need to buy more silver and parchment?

    Sorry to be so long winded, but I'm still relatively new to large crochet projects.
