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. Your podcast is the first one I ever watched. I love it!
    Your crochet star quilt is lovely. Any of your border choices will work. I like the idea of simple. Another possibility would be camel stitch (rounds of US half double crochet in the 3rd loop). Once it's the width you like, do a round of slip stitch in the 3rd loop. I usually go down a hook size for the hdc's and then up a hook size for the ss. It ends up looking a bit like i-cord. Hope this makes sense. Your blanket will be stunning whichever border you choose.
    Your niece's stitch markers are so cute!
    Thank you for all you do.

    1. Oh thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it! ☺️ That border idea sounds lovely. I have actually done my blanket border now, but I like the sound of an i-cord style, I'll have to try that. Also good idea to go up a hook size for the slip stitch, that's clever as it's so easy to work that round tight isn't it?

  2. Just caught up with your last couple of episodes, good to see your crochet-quilt progressing so well! And as a fellow daxie owner I always love to see Bertie on your vlogs

    1. Thanks so much, yes it's really getting there now! Ahh got to love our little daxie's, they are just such characters aren't they? I don't know how it is for you, but sometimes I feel like Bertie is the boss of me, rather than the other way round! 😂
