FNSI Results….

DSCF8658

Last night saw me finishing of this baby blanket, I worked on the edging with a picot stitch, very dainty and elegant…….

DSCF8657

here’s a close up of the edging….. the mum-to-be requested the blanket be done in yellow and white and I thought with such  a delicate colour way it needed the yellow to be able to pop which I think I’ve achieved with this pattern I think the yellow would have gotten lost if I’d made it into a ripple like the previous baby blanket Smile

Now it’s all nicely wrapped up with a pretty daffodil yellow satin ribbon ready and waiting to be given to the mum-to-be at her baby shower in April Smileif you’d like to see what everyone else got up to last night pop over to Wendy's but make sure to grab yourself a cuppa before you do as I’m sure you’ll be sitting for a while admiring everyone’s creativeness. Thanks  Wendy for hosting such a fun night!!

Bendigo Woollen Mills…..

DSCF8653

Today my sister Anne and I headed off to Bendigo to visit the Bendigo Woollen Mills and I must admit I thought I’d ended up in wool heaven! I was very good though and didn’t buy too much just a few balls I needed to finish off a couple of projects I have on the go……

DSCF8654

But I just couldn’t resist this pattern called “Floral Beauty” which ended up coming home with me.I’m seeing this one made up with all my leftover wool from my many different projects so another long term project is on the horizon, the pattern calls for 8ply but I’ll be doing mine in 4ply and just making up more blocks till I get the desired sizing…….I know, I’m hopeless when it comes to starting something new before finishing off my many other projects Sad smile  but on the bright side this one will be for me when it’s finished and that has to be a good thing Smile

Sticky salmon with Asian greens….

DSCF8569

Sunday dinner last night……looked really good but not too sure about the taste test I found the salmon just a bit too fishy for me but loved the choy sum ( Asian greens ) would attempt this again but with a white fish substitute next try, I must admit it’s nice to get out of my cooking comfort zone by trying new recipes. Smile
