15 inches is a lot to carry around......

The new me!!
Still deciding on whether to add a colour but after seeing these photo's and all the grey emerging I think I'll be heading back to the hairdressers in the next couple of weeks to ask their advice lol.

A finish for October....

I finally finished those last 120 squares,stitched them together and added them to my project I've been working on over the last few months.You probably guessed it was a knee rug I was working on and you'd be right! This knee rug is for me,I'm always making things for other,friends,new bubs so I thought it was time I made one for me.I love how the colours work together.
I'm still working on more squares as I thought a cushion or two in these colours would like nice on the couch next winter when I have the knee rug keeping me warm.I'm glad the rug is finished as it's starting to get hotter where I am and soon it will be too hot to crochet....mmmm will have to get back into organising my sewing room now the warmer weather has finally arrived.I'll post some photo's when I get a bit more done on it,at the moment it looks like a herd of elephants have run through it lol :)

I know,I know.....I couldn'd wait till next Friday!

I can hear my sister Anne having a quiet laugh while reading this post today.Anne and I had a gret day yesterday as she came over to my house with her machine and sat and sewed a quilt top together that's been waiting to be put together for two years. While Anne worked on her quilt I cut up the pieces I needed to make up two coin cot quilts ready to sew when she comes back next Friday for another day of sewing with me.
Mmmm Friday certainly arrived quicker than I was expecting lol.

I just couldn't resist making up one of them last night after Anne had headed home and just kept going till it was finished.I've been wanting to make up a coin quilt for a little while now and this one has me wanting to make one for our bed in similar colours ready for summer.....maybe for next year?? Anyway I'm pretty happy with the end result and can't wait to make up the 2nd one next Friday.
