Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

My lovely Belinda dragon

to be precise was mentioned in the Ginx Wooly Linz party. She is currently preening herself on the guest bed, still waiting to Little Miss F at Easter. She rather likes the idea of sitting on a bunch of Easter Eggs, but then she is a bit of a silly dragon.

I have finally completed the Attic 24 Spring Weekend Bag to my satisfaction. I have made the strap much longer so it fits comfortably across my matronly upper regions.

Flowers added in Stylecraft DK to cover the d**m joins. In close up

And with the lovely crochet bag I received in my Secret Santa parcel.

Pretty neat together I think. And then there was all the left over yarn from the weekend bag, which actually weighed more than the bag itself. Thank you everyone who suggested weighing the yarn so I could decide what I had enough to make.

I finished  sewing in all the ends last night, so now I can show you what you can make with the yarn for a weekend bag.

A blanket big enough for a lap blanket for cold knees and of course the bag itself.

And the blanket by itself. Motif is from a book by Sue Pinner.

Do please drop in on this months Ginx Wooly Linx Party to see what everyone else has made and maybe to join in your self. So nice to share the lovely things we have made don’t you think?

  1. Really great bag. I love a shoulder bag, and yours is really pretty. The blanket is very cute too. Thanks for putting my logo on your blog, and for joining in with March Ginx Woolly Linx Party https://ginxcraft.blogspot.co.uk/

  2. ‘Tis nice indeed, sharing what you’ve made with others – I love seeing what everyone has come up with. Such a cheerful bag and wise to have the foresight to extend the strap to suit your personal frame – matronly or otherwise!

  3. These turned out just great Cathy!

  4. Sweet bag and blanket in lovely colours ❤

  5. Congratulations on the recognition! Very well deserved. And she sounds like a clever dragon if she wants to sit on Easter eggs to me 😉 love your bag, it is so much fun!

  6. Lots of colourful goodies today 🙂 The blanket is gorgeous!

    I just love all the bright colours!

  8. What an awesome use of the yarn to use it up! I love your blanket, and the bag with its flowers is adorable.

  9. A lap blanket AND a bag – all your matronly bits covered with one kit 😉 If indeed you consider yourself to have matronly lower regions as well as matronly upper regions – I couldn’t possibly comment 😉

  10. bag and blamket look great – a lot of extra yarn, hmmm? The Easter Dragon looks amazing, and of course will sit on Easter eggs, who knows what will hatch?

  11. Loving the dragon – I’m sure little miss F will too. Don’t think you’ve put a link to the Ginx woolly link party. Can you give me it please? Converting that lap blanket as right now we’re just moving into a red snow alert – eeek!

    • I realised as soon as I posted and I tried to edit in after, but there was nothing doing. I will put a link into knit and natter tomorrow.
      Sounds like your snow is going to be worse than ours!

  12. That dragon is still so cute and I just love seeing him every time I visit your blog. Great job on the weekend bag. The flower is the perfect added touch. And the matching lapghan is wonderful. Those big motifs are fabulous! The colors in both the blanket and bag are so bright and cheery!

  13. Wow, congrats, that is awesome. You rock!!
    I adore your bag, and blanket, both are so cheerful and happy looking. Great job.
    Happy crafting and enjoy.
    🙂

  14. How exciting to be recognized! Your dragon IS beautiful!
    I used to crochet every Spring a little spring Easter bag (purse) for my two oldest Granddaughters. They are now 18 and 21 sigh. Oh how I miss those days! :o)

    • Oh gosh yes. It’s hard enough seeing your own children grow up, and then along come grandchildren, must be hard when they are grown up too.

  15. Some colourful makes there Cathy – love them all. Do you think Belinda has gone broody – hope for baby dragons to hatch?

  16. Well-deserved recognition for the purple dragon! But my favorite part of the post, which I intend to add to my description of myself, is the phrase “matronly upper regions”! LOL!

  17. Love your colours, Cathy!
