New fabric and Crochet progress!

Look at these lovelies I got yesterday!  I need to get busy and what I need to do is decide how I want to use these fabrics.  Hey, I still have to look through my stash to see what I might have to go with it.  Stay tuned!


This is one view.  Shall I throw in some red??


Another view.... oh, so pretty and NOT MY PALETTE!  So, this will be a challenge for me!


I have been into paisley's since I went to Scotland a few years ago.  Let's see what comes of this.


Off the hook is my completed crochet squares!  I just have to figure out how to put them together.  The free pattern I picked up on the aisle in the States this summer doesn't tell you how to put them together but upon closer inspection; I found a website that gives some ways to 'seam' the blocks together.  Let's see what I end up with!

Thanks for stopping by...

More material ... your stash is growing!

Yay the squares are finished. Yes, I was the same I had a bag of squares and suddenly thought "how do I put them together" LOL.

BTW remember to "block" your squares BEFORE joining or you could end up with a wonky shape like me DOUBLE LOL.

In the end i used a single stitch on the hook to put them together. It was nice and neat so you don't really see it from the front.

I am so addicted to Japanese fabrics & since I live here, it is a terrible addiction. Alia, I had wanted to email you but cannot do it vis the sidebar button on your blog.
