Is there anybody there?

"Is there anybody there?
said the Traveller knocking on the moonlit door"
From The Listeners by Walter De La Mare (1873-1956)
Having spent quite a number of hours playing with the layout and design of this blog page I decided it must be time to put pen to paper or, rather, fingers to keyboard and actually post something!
It does feel a bit strange and awkward to get started.  What do I say? Who will read what I write and is there even anybody there? 
I am a keen patchwork and quilter and I also enjoy stitchery, embroidery and some basic crochet.  My aim here is to share some of the projects I am working on.  My biggest problem is that currently most of my sewing room has been packed away in readiness for some renovations to be carried out to our house.  So sharing some sewing projects may actually have to wait a few weeks.
My sewing room before it was packed up!
Luckily, I do have some crochet projects on the go which will keep my fingers busy until I can get back to sewing.
This is what I am currently working on.  It is a 'Navajo' Blanket and the pattern is from the book 'Crocheted throws and wraps' by Melody Griffiths.  So far I have made a start on the centre panel.  The pattern is made by crocheting triangles and then sewing them together.  The triangles work up quickly but the sewing together is more tricky!
I am really pleased with how it is looking.  It will be fun to get it finished off whilst my sewing room is out of use!

This is the wool that I am using.  I think it is going to look nice when it is finished!

I'll post more photos of my progress!

Well, time to go.... hope there's someone there!
