Sunburst progress

Hi All I Hope you all had a lovely week, we had A LOT of rain here in the UK this week so there were plenty of crochet days :) 

here is my progress this week on my Sunburst throw,

I'm doing it in blocks of ten wide, that makes it 35 in without the border so that's plenty wide enough,

I'm not sure how long it will be...I'll just keep going till I feel it's enough :)
I've joined them together using the whip stitch, you can see a video on that below.

Happy crafting in whatever you do

Sunburst crochet

Hi All, I hope you're all having a great weekend and enjoying the beautiful weather or are crafting whatever you enjoy.
I've done the first six squares of the throw for my sewing room chair, I think I will connect all these before doing the next batch and then I will add them as I go I think, 
so that is the next challenge, to learn how to connect them all :)

I Love this sunburst design, it's so bright and cheery.

Happy Crafting :)

for anyone wanting to try this craft or pattern I've added the link on how I learnt,
There are 4 easy rounds to learn.

if you click on the you tube link on the right of the video it will take you to this and the other 3 tutorials.

First ever crochet!

Hi all, hope everyone is enjoying good weather and a happy summer!
I've been meaning to have a go at crochet, something I've always wanted to try but never have got round to it..till today. 
I taught myself how to do the sunburst granny square.. you tube is a wonderful teacher 
so here is my very first square!
I think I need more practise to get my tension right as it's tight in places and loose in others but with practise I'll look forward to making more and maybe a cushion or throw for my craft room chair.

Happy Stitching
