R.I.P Belle....

Today our baby Belle went over the rainbow bridge, we'll miss our Tinker Belle but we know she's not in anymore pain now and I can just picture her reunion with Fred our boxer who passed away 6 years ago.....playing chasey and tug of war.
R.I.P little one you'll be greatly missed :(

Another finish!!

 Finally crocheted the last stitches for the edging of this baby blanket, I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out and even though I'm not a fan of neutral colours I'm loving this now that it's finished!
 I decided to finish with a simple double crochet edging and I think it finishes it of beautifully :) Now to wrap it up and deliver it to the mum to be next week :) Woooo Hooo another one crossed of my list!!! MMmmm only problem is they seem to be multiplying and I now have two more baby blankets on my crochet list .....oh well take one off put two on :)
These are the fat 1/4's I sent to Shez for her birthday as well as a covered journal and a cottage thread aptly named "Mill Rose" hehehehe
 These fat 1/4's and threads were sent to Sandra for our birthday swap hosted by Cathy.
These are the fat 1/4's and threads I sent to Maureen also for Cathy's fat 1/4 birthday swap.
These fat 1/4's and threads were sent to Claire, another fat 1/4 birthday participant of Cathy's fat 1/4 birthday swap.
 These fat 1/4's, mug rug and thread were sent to Simone from Cheryll's at 1/4 birthday swap.
and finally these last fat 1/4's, charm pack and  decorative tin were sent to Christine whose picture I borrowed from her blog as I'd forgotten to take a photo of them before I wrapped them up duh!
Lots of birthdays happening in September and I wish all the birthday girls had fantastic days for them :)

 Shez and I have a one on one swap with each other going on each time we meet at our Mill Rosie meet ups and this months designer was Natalie Ross and I chose to make Shez this block keeper.....Mmmmm I'm thinking I need to make one of these for myself? Shez of course loved it PHEW!!! Wiping my brow here!
 This is a picture of the inside of the block keeper......

 The back of the block keeper, I love all the colours/fabrics I used in this project :)
 Another finish is this blanket I've been working on for my sister since April, it's now in the Christmas gift basket waiting for me to wrap it up later in the year for her to put under her Chrissy tree.
 Here is a close up picture of the final edging I decided to go with after showing Anne for her final approval....
This is the gorgeous bag Shez made for me in our one on one swap but wait there's more!! she also included a zippered pouch, a mobile phone cover (always wanted one of these) and a tissue cover to inside my new bag. Thanks Shez I love everything you've made for me and I love the fabrics you used they are sooooo me :)
I'll try and do a few more posts over the next week with photo's of our Mill Rosie meet up and all the fun we got up to :)

FNSI Results.....

 Friday night saw me working on this baby blanket again......
here it is unfolded so you can get a better idea on how big it actually is,I've been taking this one to work with me so I can add a row or two over my lunch break, I'm sooooo close to finishing this one I can taste it! I think I'll finish this final pattern repeat and start thinking about how I want to edge it as I think this one will need one to make it look truly finished :)
I'll be heading off to the Mill Rosie get together in a little while and hope to have lots of pic's to share with you when I get back :)

FNWF Results.....

Friday saw me stitching up more of these blocks, it also saw me working on them Saturday as well as Saturday night while I was of 14 blocks together, with 2 to finish sewing in the ends and then sew them together and I'll be ready to put all the blocks together FINALLY!, the end is definitely in sight for a December finish woooo hoooo :)I've been trying to leave messages on other FNWF stitchers blogs but blogger keeps playing up when I go to post them so I'll try again tonight and see what messages I can leave as it's as frustrating as all get out when you take the time to leave a detailed comment and it disappears into the internet ether :(
