2021 Week 8

Ooops, that was  a bit of a gap between posts!

Not much crafting seems to have been done though

I was given this lovely clay Ginger

And these vanilla scented Ginger melts for my wax burner (Thank you Niki - a bit of a theme going on here!)

The lovely Carolyn at church started off a crochet blanket for me (no, I can't cast on - doh!)  It twisted a bit to start with but it's getting better

I put on my big girl pants and started adding some extra types of stitches (I don't know anything fancy: just UK double and trebles)

And apparently added some extra stitches at one end and lost them at the other end - I'm trying to sort them out as to where they should be, and hopefully this bit will be ok after blocking 

To reassure myself with something I *can* do, I made another sari rope basket for my balls of wool

I made a bunch of log cabin blocks, but I've put them away for now - the contrast (between the brights and the grey/white) is disappointing

I was asked if I could do a couple of trampolining Gingers but I couldn't quite envisage them

Lora grabbed her felt tip pens and drew these for me

So I made these


  1. When you say 'not much crafting' that doesn't actually seem to be true - either for yourself or others! What a darling clay 'ginger'! Love the strippy crochet that you are doing - and that basket to keep your wool in is amazing! xxx

  2. Wow, those trampolining gingers! If this is no crafting Benta, then I'm on a negative scale!

    We've own a mini trampoline that my husband got for recovery exercises when he damaged his ankle. I've dragged it out of the shed and washed it down. Had a bounce on it in the sunshine yesterday - it felt good!

  3. I love the colours of the log cabin. You are getting through loads of crafting. More fab Gingers 💜

  4. Go you with the crochet!! I actually, finally found my rope for a basket the other day. However don't ask me where it is now.

  5. Hi Benta,
    Your crochet looks lovely! has lots of easy to follow tutorials if you are interested. I used this site to learn “magic circles” but there’s lots more help there too! Love the sari rope basket, very pretty! Great log cabin quilt, well done.
    The “gingers” are really special too - you’ve made so many now - all fantastic!
    Lovely to catch up on all your makes!
