I've been baking anzacs for my dad,soon to make more....

Started re-stitching these blocks again with DMC threads instead of Anchor which bled orange all over one of my first set of these blocks and discouraged me so much I haven't even looked at them for well over a year.....back on track and hope to keep up with these into the new year as my UFO to finish.
I've also been busy stitching up a storm for my Santa Sack swap partner Karen,these are now on their way to her as I posted this parcel off to her after work today.I'll post photo's of all the pressies I made/bought for her after she opens them Christmas morning.
Soooo a very busy few weeks.......and,and,'s offficial I'm now on Uni holidays till Febuary next year woooo hooo I'm going to let my crafty mojo start getting to work,you aint seen nothing yet!!

FNSI....A start and a finish

 This is what I managed to finish last night before we lost power on and off for most of the night, a cushion cover to go with the flimsy quilt top I just finished a little while ago using some of the left over squares from it........the block is called a disappearing nine patch,
and this is what I started working on by candlelight....I know,I know another project started.I bought this wool a little while ago and thought it was 4ply and it wasn't till I got home that I realise it was 8ply and much too heavy to use for crocheting a baby blanket so now I've started using it in  another blanket but a knitted one this time,I'm very slow at knitting so we'll see how long it takes for it to be finished :)

Finally a finish for November

 I finally stitched the last row of edging around this crocheted blanket today...I needed a break from studying and nothing relaxes me more than using my hands to make such yummy creations.
This is a photo of som of the crocheted blankets I've finished off this year.I didn't realise how many I'd worked on  till I piled them all up to take a photo Mmmmm I have been just a little bit busy this year LOL :)

Still trying to decide???

Whether to add a couple of more rows, a final border or just leave as is?? What do you think?

What I've been up to while blogger's been playing up on me....

 Remember this?? I started working on this crocheted blanket a few months ago got distracted working on other things and uni assignments and put it down till just recently I've been working on it and it's gone from this to.....
 To this,boy has it grown.I've nearly finished it I just need to do about another nine rows of ripple then I'll start on the border.I love the colours I chose for this blanket,very spring-like :)
I also participated in the fat 1/4 swap and these are the lovely fat 1/4' my partner Leonie for the month of October sent me,thanks Leonie I love them.
I love the combination of red and white together,I must hunt out my redwork stitcheries for a Bronwyn Hayes quiltI have planned for this fabric and start finishing them off,maybe over my uni holidays for Christmas break which is near the end of this month??
P.S:The title of the post is because blogger in its wisdom decided my blog was spam and I couldn't access it :(
