Yep, Spring has sprung and the first day was absolutely wonderful. Since then, however, it seems mother nature has decided to give us a further dose of winter. Never mind, all the better for stitching and keeping snug. I was getting quite frustrated having lost a pattern for making a crocheted ripple blanket and I think I aired my displeasure on a previous post. Well, true to form, a couple of my lovely bloggy friends came to the rescue and I decided to follow a step by step visual lesson from Attic 24. Wooohooo! I have nearly completed this baby blanket for a girl who is having a summer baby. I have made it a bit larger than usual so it will be useful in the cooler months. Just a couple more rows to finish and VOILA!
Despite spending most of my craft time crocheting I have managed to catch up with Val's BOM and I am now eagerly awaiting the next block due this month. I am not very happy with my stitching on this one but it is only for me so I shall not get too stressed about it. I think my eyes are failing me a bit due to lack of sleep.
Having played with a bit of felt I am now loving it and I am making a couple of Christmas decos. I thank Shez and Peg for getting me out of my comfort zone with the FHFS.
So, that's my show and tell for now. I am off to finish that blanket and tidy my sewing room.
