Friday night with friends....

 Cheryl at http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au/  has started up a new stitching night and last night I got my trusty crochet hook out and started working on this ripple blanket,I've been so busy with study I haven't really been working on it or much else except for bits and pieces here and there. I love how quickly this works up,not long now and it will be a finish :)
 this is how it looks rolled up......yummy! I sooooo love red and white together.
 These were found on my doorstep yesterday by my sister when she dropped by for a visit,too late to take photo's and I was soooo good and din't touch the peppermint fudge till after this photo was taken this morning and I was really,really good and gave a sliver of it to my hubby before devouring the rest MMmmmm Thanks Cheryl it went down a treat and the two pressies are safely tucked away in my santa sack unmolested,squeeszed,sniffed,poked or prodded by me :)
 This is what Heather sent me in this months fat 1/4 swap, the chocolates are long gone LOL and the fabric washed and ironed and added to my stash. Thanks for being my partner Heather I love everything that you sent to me :) I forgot to take a photo of what I sent to Heather so why don't you pop over to her blog at http://seriouslycrazy4craft.blogspot.com.au/ and have a look around,she has a lovely blog full of yummy handmade things :)
This is another project that I've been trying to finish,I started swapping these hexagons with my craft forum and only now am I making them into a table topper.I still hav the final row to sew on and I'm thinking of adding a crocheted border but will decide after it's been put together. I'm hopeing to get back into this swap next year as I will have a bit mor time to participate in a few more swaps once I've finished up with my studies this year :)

Hello Barb,

Just love the crochet blanket. I stocked up on some yarn this morning. I do love the hexie runner and a crochet edge would be lovely.

Have a wonderful weekend.
