Beautiful Blogger Blanket

Today I read about the Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013. Last year crocheting bloggers made a beautiful blanket by each making a square (or a few!) and Jill put all the sqaures together making a truly beautiful blanket.

The deadline for the 2013 blanket was January 31st and I saw the post today - 1 day late....or so I thought, I was really happy to see that the deadline had been extended until Valentine's day which means that I could make a square and take part!

If anyone is interested in taking part you've still got time!

I used 15 grams of yarn for this square. I am weighing all of the yarn that I use now to take part in the stash buster challenge.

I've also had a bit of stash buster fail. I had a ball of baby yarn that I wanted to use so I started to make another dress like my christening dress to use it up. Everything was going well until I saw that there was not going to be enough yarn to finish it:

So, I'm going to have to buy more yarn to be able to finish it. That means by trying to destash I'm actually going to increase my stash! :)

Have a happy, crafty weekend!


  1. Elisabeth, your crochet is amazing. Hugs to you,

  2. The dress will be beautiful so it's definitely worth the purchase. I love your squares I've done some for the blogger blanket too :)

  3. What a really pretty dress, what a pity you'll have to get more yarn but it will be so worth it. Thanks for popping over to my blog and following, happy to do likewise to see your wonderful creations.

  4. Your square is lovely. I know that feeling when you realize you don't have enough yarn to finish you project. I'm glad to know you can buy the same yarn. I had a few projects that I had to unravel because I couldn't find the same yarn.

  5. Beautiful dress and square! I thought I missed the blanket deadline - perhaps I can get a square made after all.

    Lucky you to live in Spain - my husband's grandmother was from Barcelona and we've always wanted to visit that country.

    De-stashing is very difficult, isn't it? :)

  6. Hi Elisabeth, thankyou for following me!! I love the crochet square and the pretty flower! I need to start de-stashing my wool too, wool and fabric have a habit of just jumping right into by bags when I'm out (like to point out that I do pay for it hehe) I just can't seem to resist, but I do work in a Sewing Shop so I guess temptation is there! Beautiful christening dress. Karen x

  7. what an amazing dress, you're so clever

  8. Hi, Elizy! lovely square, I guess, in one of you favorite colors ;)
    Don't worry, and buy yarn and finish this pretty dress, I 'd like to see it :)
    Have a lovely week!

  9. I liked the centre of your square. It's different! The dress is very cute! Waiting to see it complete !:)

  10. Hi Elisabeth, I just popped over to say thank you for your visit over at my blog and for becoming my newest follower! I just became your newest follower and am really looking forward to visiting often - hey, we Elisabeths must stick together! :D
    I love your post right behind this current one - wow eating in a pub from the 1300's! Here in New Hampshire if something is 400 years old that's amazing! I would so love to visit places in England like that! *sigh* maybe someday...
    Hugs and have a wonderfully creative week,
    Elisabet P

  15. Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope you like the photography book. If you are still looking for a pom pom maker I recently bought one from ebay -it's really easy and quick to use and is made by a company called Clover - costs about £5. I made a little baby bobble hat using the pom pom maker if you want to see a photo its on my blog - think the post was called something like cute little hats! Good luck with your stash busting x
