Busy, Busy, Busy.....

 I finally finished the last bag of squares for my sister Anne's blanket now comes the fun part of sewing in all those ends...... I think this will be done one bag at a time while I'm watching TV at night or maybe taking a bag or two to work with me to work on over my lunch breaks, I can't wait to see this one made up with a bit of a fancy edge :) I can see it being finished by Christmas now!
 This is another blanket I've been slowly plodding along on, not my usual colours but the expectant mum wanted neutral colours so neutral it is, this one is also working up quickly and I hope to have it finished by the middle of November before her bub's due :)
 I know, I know.....another baby blanket being worked on what can I say my work place seems to be exploding with bub's at the moment and I have another two I'll be starting in another month or so as soon as the mum's find out what they're having and tell me what colours/patterns they'd like for their new additions. I'm certainly keeping my crochet hook smoking at the moment lol....
Here are both blankets, the blue and white ripple blanket is slightly bigger than the neutral one as the expectant mum asked if I could make it bigger and I was happy to oblige :)
I've also been working on some secret sewing so can't show you what else I've working on, hopefully by the end of September I'll be able to show you these items. I've also been working on a couple of crocheted blankets for me when I need a break from working on the baby ones, boy you'd think I don't sleep with all the things I've been churning out lately, hope to post more pic's soon :)
