Update on the ripple blanket other bits and bobs....

 My ripple blanket has doubled in size,I've just started repeating the design for the second time and I'm tthinking three repeats might just be enough for the size I want.....I soooo love how it's turning out and can't wait to finish it!
 I promised to show you some of the things I bought at the craft show.....as you can see red & cream slipped into my bag when I wasn't looking lol,
 and who could resist these pretties,two of them I selected for someones birthday........
 I also couldn't resist popping more Ruby and Bliss into my bag as well as a christmas fat quarter to add to my stash of Christmas fabrics.....
I also bought myself a new rotary cutter as I'm having problems with cutting for long amounts of time with my old one and let me tell you it cuts like a dream and is soooo easy to use!!! I also bought some wool felt in gorgeous Chrissy colours MmMMmmm.I'll post more pic's soon of the other things I bought while at the show.
Just a query when you comment on my blog do you have to go through the word verification shamozzle???? I think I've successfully removed this option to make it easier for you to comment so if you can I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know if it worked????
