Did that get your attention? Hope so.
Well here goes… I’m jumping in with both feet here… would any of you crochet ninjas like to take part in some collaborative crochet???
I have been wanting to do something a bit more interactive on my blog for a while and, to be honest I have got tired of just thinking about it…. lets do it! (Eeeeekk, tiny bit scary!)
So here’s what I’m thinking. I would like you all to join me in making a crochet blanket. We’ll all make a few blocks and I will join them. If you join in and make some blocks you get the chance to keep the blanket when its finished. How lovely would that be? To own a blanket made by your crocheting friends around the country/world (not sure about that bit yet!?)?
Does this sound a little familiar to anyone?? Well thats because the original idea is from here. The lovely Stocki ran a Beautiful Blogger Blanket Competition in 2012 and 2013. I missed out on those but promised myself I would join in in the future. Sadly, Stocki has been away from blogland for a while and hasn’t run a 2014 competition. So I thought maybe we could get on and do our own version. I have contacted her though and she has given us her blessing.
So the main purpose of this post is to ask if anyone is interested in joining me? I am wondering if I am going to be Billy No-Mates or swimming in crochet blocks??
If you are interested, would you like us to put our own spin on the idea by incorporating a theme?? It could be a colour theme (eg. Blues? Rainbow? Spring?), or a shape theme (e.g. Hexagons? Triangles?) or something else like Flower Blocks? Or any other theme you can think of and would like to suggest. The ideas are endless.
You might need to bear with me for a while as I get my head around it all. But please let me know what you think.
