Granny Squares 2......colour and shape

Thank you for all the congratulations on the new book, it is well on it's way, after 4 months of planning, deciding and playing with ideas from the last twelve months,
plus quite a few new designs.
 
 
 In total I submitted about 80 designs and 2 different options of book for GMC to look at back in early February.
 They went for the 20 projects again, with may be the second option as book 3!!! wow i am going to be busy.
 


Not that the cover will be my decision but a fun project to play with.
I promise there will be lots and lots of colour and new shapes, 
I'm also hoping to include a few felted designs....I promised Vogue Crochet and Knitting I would try to include a couple of ideas.
 
 


 
 
The Title is still to be decided but the 20 projects are almost in the bag, they liked the 80 I sent and I was asked to pick my favourite 20 designs.
So now I am just waiting on the final go ahead from the GMC Team.
 
The Contract is signed and the work begins.......

  1. I received your first book as a Christmas gift and still haven't hooked any of your designs. I wish I was retired and had more time...sigh. Bohemian Spirit sounds very intriguing, looking forward to seeing the inside.

  2. I love those triangles. I like the top arrangement best. They would make a wonderful cover for a crochet book! They remind me of that marvellous triangle bunting I made last year!
