Purple squares

I've been slowly working my way through 200 Crochet blocks by Jan Eaton, making squares for a possibly rainbow sampler blanket that I have in the back of my mind.  I still haven't got round to looking for the older ones I think I made a while back... I'm slowly sorting out my craft room so hopefully they'll come to light but that room is like a bottomless pit so who knows!


This is #3 Square Target, the colours are RUBBISH.  I just couldn't capture them properly and this turned out to be the last photo shoot of my camera's life so I think it was dying at this point.


#64 Sunshine Lace needs a good old block, in fact they all do, but this one is particularly curvy - tension issues?

I've still got a long way to go to work my way through the book, and then I should start on the 72 million squares that I've pinned...

Goodness, how big is the blanket going to be?!

Pretty colours :) Do you have to buy a new camera? Mine was stolen from our oldest son years ago - I kept "borrowing" it and he ended up buying a new (better) one - works for me! ;)

Beautiful squares! I can't crochet to save my life, so I just admire everyone else's :D

Pretty squares and I'm sure even more so in colour. How do you like the Jan Eaton book? I'm interested in a granny square book but there are so many to choose from.

Beautiful blocks, the finished blanket is going to be wonderful.

You'll be crocheting like a busy little beaver but the end
result will be great. The last curvy block seems to have a
lot of trebles in each corner? Is that the pattern?
Cheers, Anita.
