A 2015 finish I couldn't show you till now.....





2015 was a busy year for me crochet-wise, this beautiful blanket was made for an old work friend who was expecting her 2nd bub but I couldn't post about it as time ran away from us as the 2015 ended and it's only in the last week or so that I was able to meet up with my friend to hand deliver this blanket to her, needless to say she was very pleased with it, my friend gave me carte blanche with the pattern I could use with the only stipulation on the colours which as you can see I used a very soft pink, grey and white combination. I think it turned out beautifully and so did she so that's all that matters really :)

A little finish.....

I forgot to show you a little finish I made for a friend who asked me if I could make her a set of crocheted stacking baskets.....fiddly but well worth the time and effort to make them :)

Friday Night With Friends results....




Friday night had me crocheting a few more rows on my Scandinavian inspired blanket using Stylecraft Special DK in 8ply.....unusual for me as I predominately use 4ply as my go to yarn, still a long way to go with this one but it's crocheting up very quickly with the 8ply.
Pop over to Cheryll's blog to check out what everyone else got up to Friday night :)

Sorry it's been a while, but I have been busy....

Finally finished my Spice Of Life blanket......


Worked on a baby blanket in grey, blue and white not my usual colours :)
I'll try to do a bit better with blogging this month, January has just flown by with starting back to work etc.....I'm still not able to use windows live writer and blogger isn't the greatest to try and use to do posts with but I will persevere :)

Another post, by jimminy I think she's finally got it!



Okay giving blogger another try with a bit of help from my friend Peg who suggested I play around with the settings on my post which I've done....still all thumbs but I know I'll get there! Anyway this is one of the projects I've been working on over the past few months my very own dotty/spotty blanket using Bendigo luxury wool in 4ply, hopefully I'll have some progress photo's to show you real soon :)

Playing catch up...

Once again I've had to use blogger to try and do a post and since blogger only uploads my photo's into numbers and letters I can't individually tell you what each photo is about, very frustrating! Anyway these are are the lovely gifts I received from Ondrea in our friends Having Fun Christmas Swap, so I'll let the photo's do the talking for me and say a very big thank you to Ondrea for all my gorgeous gifts I loved opening each and every one of them :) P.S: If anyone knows how I can turn the photo's into actual pictures while I'm doing my draft it would be very appreciated as I'm getting very annoyd at not being able to post more often :(

Thanks Ondrea!..... I hope this works

Ok since my Windows live writer isn't co-operating I'm trying blogger again to see if I can post on my blog as I've tried and tried over the past couple of weeks with no luck and I'm missing blogging! The above photo if it appears is of the first three gifts Ondrea sent me in our 12 days of Christmas swap :) Day one: A shopping note book Day two: A tin full of various sized gingerbread men cutters Day three: A red and white spatula MMmmm me thinks Ondrea knows I love to cook, write notes and create biscuits this time of year! Thanks Ondrea I've loved all my gifts you've sent me!! If this post appears on my blog I'll post more photo's of all the lovely and thoughtful gifts Ondrea has sent since I opened day three's gift :)

As Helen's note states it’s a “Just because” gift I was so surprised and couldn’t stop smiling and looking at it! Helen even personalised it with my initial in the middle of the hexie, soooo love it Helen and feeling very spoilt and loved so thank you, you made my day! Hoping we can catch up sometime next year for me to give you a great big hug!

FROM KATE…….THANK YOU!

DSCF9382

A while ago Kate sent out an SOS requesting a particular fabric which I didn’t have in my stash but said I had another that might do from the same range, Kate later got back to me and I ended up sending her the fabric I had, anyone that knows me knows I love to help out and not expect anything in return so I didn’t give it another thought once I popped the fabric in the post to her……

Imagine my surprise when a few weeks later a parcel arrived from Kate and inside this parcel was this gorgeous wall hanging using fabrics from Bonnie & Camille….. Utterly and totally gobsmacked! Thank you so much Kate !! it will take pride of place in my sewing room.
