First finish for May….

Finally made something for myself Smile I couldn’t resist making myself one of Gail Pan’s Cottage Garden Thread holder after making one for Cheryl's birthday recently and of course it had to be in red & white LOL! So one finish for OPAM.

I’ve also been steadily working on this blanket, crocheting up my squares during my lunch breaks at work and stitching another couple of rows on in the evening while watching a spot of TV to make up it up to row seven, just ten more rows and it will be done! MMMMmmm that means another 170 squares still to be made yikes! I’d better get my skates on….I really can’t wait to see this one on my bed!!

I’ve also been doing some slow stitching on block four of my Scandinavian Roses BOM which is coming along nicely, so as you can see I’ve been keeping myself busy over the past week or two Smile
