Yes you heard me right Mrs Grann E. S. Quare goes traveling or should I say where is the most interesting or strangest place your crocheting has been? You are going to see some of the places that Grann has been with me these last few weeks. You will also hear over the next few months about some of her exploits and about some of the funny or strange places she has been. Do you take your crocheting with you? Has it been by the pool?, or on a stunning beach? (please let us all know).
I have been thinking about this for a few months now, about writing something different to hopefully keep you all reading and looking at the blog. To give you something that is out of the ordinary to think about, so you don’t get bored with some of my blog posts. I heard recently on Facebook or was it a craft channel ( I cannot remember), to always have a crochet hook or two with you just in case an opportunity arises to crochet. I thought wait a minute, what planet is she on? Why?, because I know of lots of crocheters who would never leave the house without the latest project or THE CROCHETING BAG.
I don’t need much room for Mrs Grann, she fits nicely into a pocket or bag and can go anywhere.
Where has Mrs Grann E.S. Quare been recently? Mrs Grann has been on her holidays to beautiful Donegal in the south of Ireland. Which she thought was very strange, because we had to go north from where we are in Northern Ireland to get to the south of Ireland (only in Ireland). The photos show Grann on the beaches on top of mountains or hills. She also visited the site of a Wellington Bomber crash but it was too windy for her to get out of her mode of transport (my bag). Which left her thinking are we wise?? You have to go to these out of way places for the spectacular views. One of the places Grann visited is a place called Malin were part of Star Wars VIII was filmed, with more being filmed later this year. It is a lovely place as you can see from the photos.
Summer is on its way, the weather is getting better and the sun is coming out. It is time to get outside and take your crocheting with you. I hope your tension is always right and you get as much praise and appreciation as you deserve.
Hopefully there will be more photos of Mrs Grann E S Quare soon (she has even got her own heading on the pages for you to go straight to so see where she has been).
Before I go I better mention the wife did of course take at least one crochet project with her on our holidays to Donegal (notice I said at least 1, I think there was 3 that came with us). Anyway as some of you know and have been waiting patiently for our return and to get back into routine the Art Nouveau project is now in full swing. The pattern for the Iris cushion is now on sale and she is busy crocheting the Tulip, she has made a page under patterns to keep you all up to date when the next block is done. Art Nouveau Project
I think that is all for now, hope you are all having wonderful weather as what we are having.
