FNWF results....

 This Friday night saw me working on some more of these crocheted squares and going to spottie today to buy enough wool to start working on the final 2 rounds for each square.....told you I couldn't resist making another one and I think I have enough leftover wool to make a small knee rug for the back of our sofa,something springlike to huddle under on those cold wintry nights ahead.
I also found myself working on this stitchery when my hands started to protest with too much crocheting,it's slowly coming together :)
I'm off to investigate all the other bloggers who participated in this event and try to do a bit more baking as well,beef stew is simmering on the stove top,the cornish pasties are nearly ready to come out of the oven to be replaced with a zuchinni slice and then finally some white chocolate & cranberry biscuits to finish off with.....not much happening with the craft but the baking's getting done to restock the freezer again for when I'm doing a late shift at work :)

Your crochet blanket is going to look gorgeous and your stitchery is very cute. And your baking sounds 'to die for'...I'm just getting back into a bit of cooking after not being bothered for quite a few years...it's very comforting isn't it.

Barb! how could you talk of such mouthwatering food , I'm trying so hard to limit my food intake . It is the muscle at the top of my arm that protests when crocheting . I have the crochet bug badly.

Mistea said...

Lovely - you certainly have those colours sorted.
Funny you should be cooking up a storm as those blanket colours remind me a lot of summer fruits and cream!
Pretty stitches.

I'm sure you crochet in your sleep Barb! All that baking sounds yummy. I've got to bake choc chip cookies today (plus a couple of quiches). It's back to school tomorrow for the boys and they "need" bikkies in their lunches so they tell me!

Lovely Barb, I'm working on the Same stitchery this afternoon :)

Those white chocolate and cranberry cookies were DELICIOUS!!! I had some and a cuppa when I visited with Barb on Friday! Much chatting, show & telling, but not any sewing this time! Thanks for a lovely morning Barb.

I am so very happy to have found your blog! I completely understand, like many other likeminded readers, your need to keep your fingers moving! Your blog is an inspiration and I am left wondering why I haven't stumbled across you before. I'm off to follow you now :-)
