Photo's galore.....

 This is a baby blanket I've been knitting using a wool called chenille,it's very soft and lovely to work with.I have a ball left over from the blanket so I'm thinking of making a few face washers to go with the blanket as a gift.....another finish for the gift box this year and OPAM.
 These yummy fat 1/4's are from Cathy who organises the fat 1/4 club I'm in,Cathy sent these fat 1/4's for my birthday......thanks Cathy it feels like I've been celebrating my birthday all month lol.
 These very pretty red fat 1/4's ,ribbon and DMC threads are from Nomes who also participates in the fat 1/4 swap with me.Thanks Naomi I love them all!
 Naomi also surprised me with a belated birthday pressie,I love the red polk-a-dot pouch and can see my hexies having a nice place to rest while working on them.Naomi also sent me some card embellishhments and mini post it notes which will come in handy with my uni work.
 This is a picture of the front of the bag,just gorgeous.....
Look how deep it is,I'm predicting I'll be able to fit lots and lots of hexies in here,the perfect place to store them!! Thanks Naomi and Cathy for making my birthday a very special month for me :) XXX

Fabulous polka dot pouch, the hexies have a very stylish home! The baby blanket is just gorgeous, just right for snuggling a winter-bub. x

You're welcome Barb. Fantastic work on the blanket, I think I've tried similar yarn and didn't like it...perhaps I should send any remaining balls over to you! Yeah that's a brilliant idea, then I'll have more room to stash more fabric!

Hugs
