What I've been working on....I need another holiday

 I finally finished this ripple cushion cover, sewn up and sitting on our couch...
 I finished crocheting the second red scarf and it's now in the Christmas basket ready for gift giving :)
 I've been working on finishing of a few more sets of squares to be made up into more blocks for my sisters blanket, three made up, four ready for their ends to be sewn in and one final set ready to work the final round of white around each of them....in total eight blocks sooooo close to being finished so halfway to completing Anne's blanket so barring anything happening I should have it done and dusted for her for Christmas this year woooo hoooo.....
 I also received these lovely red & white fat 1/4's, thread, London themed buttons and a handy white choc mocha mix from Cathy in our fat 1/4 swap. Thanks Cathy I loved everything you sent me and will be saving these special buttons for a very special project :)
 These are the fat 1/4's I sent to Cathy as well as some DMC threads, Cathy has let me know she loved what I sent her and I hope we get the chance to be swap partners again :)
 I also received this lovely snowman from Lyn. B in my Craft Forum hexie swap....love him to bits Lyn :)
 I also have to confess to starting on another ripple baby blanket in variegated blue with white, I may add a plain aqua to this blanket will see how it works up???
I also started another baby blanket using the pattern from the red scarf as the girl I'm making it for fell in love with the laciness when I was working on the first red scarf for the colour swap and asked if I could make her another blanket for her second baby......not too sure if I'll be using the blue as she hasn't found out what she's having yet but I do know that there'll be no pink in this blanket even if it is a girl lol....so may need a darker brown if it's a girl to replace the dark blue.
As you can see I've been keeping myself busy and I still have to take a photo of the ripple blanket I've also just started for my hubby for his birthday next year in June that should give me plenty of time to finish it don't you think???? I love how it's looking with all the different shades of greens, browns, cream and silver together.
