I'm back finally.....lots of firsts happening here!!

 I've been very busy while I've been absent on my blog making premmie baby beanies for a friend to donate to one of our local hospitals....
 I also finally took my courage in both hands and attempted a "call the midwife" blanket using a soft variegated 4 ply....
 I love how the light flickers over the blanket picking up the different colours...
 Here is a picture of my last lot of premmie beanies which have been delivered and I'm now working on my next lot to give in May πŸ˜€
 This is another first for me a pixelated fox cushion I made for my sister for Christmas, l can see another being made for me soon...

 I've also been working on this beauty a blanket called "granny goes large" designed by Cherry heart blog fame, this is such a delight to pick up and work on in-between other projects....
 I also made my first crocheted shawl called "Angel wings" designed by Sue Pinner, it's just gorgeous and I can't wait to wear it this winter hopefully I wont look too much like a crocheting nana lol..


 I've also been stitching for swaps
Another swap item, love the fanric in this one πŸ˜€
well thats a little pictorial of what's been keeping me busy over the last few months, I've also just been taking some me time to relax, de-clutter & and work on setting up my new sewing room which I'm enjoying very much. Sooo no promises on when I'll be posting again but it will happen when I have more projects  I want to share with you all πŸ˜€

Lots of fun crocheting happening at your house! I usually have a baby afghan in process, because it's one craft that I can work on in the car. Your little variegated blanket is adorable.
