Friday night saw me sewing together my coloured “Willow” blocks into a lap size blanket, I still have a few more rows to add on before it’s finished but it’s getting there rather quickly Smile

Slowly, slowly this stitchery is being worked on around other projects, deadlines and swaps and off course my never ending crochet blankets SmileI’m also trying to fit in a few minutes here and there on my Rosalie Quinlan Scandinavian Roses stitcheries, I should have a progress photo to show you by this weekend if all goes to plan.

Finally finished crocheting a very simple edging around my willow blanket and couldn’t resist taking a photo of it on my bed, I’m really pleased with how this one has turned out and I can see the beginning of how I’d like my bedroom to look…….. now I just need to get on with making a few small crocheted scatter cushions in red, white & cream with accents of blue and green to mix it up a bit SmileWhat do you think?

Progress and trying something new …..

DSCF8942

Here’s where I’m at with these willow blocks, first 26 coloured centres with a light grey edging…….Soooooo pretty! I think I’ll have enough of the grey to make a reasonable sized lap blanket woooo hooooo!!

Now to the something new……   

DSCF8940

I’ve been experimenting with making my own bread……

DSCF8946

Which has now grown to this in just a few short hours! it’s nearly at the stage it will be pushing against the glad wrap soon……I so cannot wait to bake this ball of gooey goodness and turn it into a crusty loaf of home baked bread! I’ll post a photo tomorrow after I take it out of the oven Smile

June FNWF’s Results….

DSCF8919

Friday night saw m being naughty and starting a new crochet project using the willow block pattern I’m going to border the blocks with a soft silvery grey, this project is hopefully going to use up all those little balls of leftovers I have accumulated from other projects. I’m not sure what this one will turn into I’m just going to keep on making these blocks till I run out of wool, they might turn into a blanket or maybe a couple of cushions for our couch (or maybe both) time will tell Smile

Now to sit with a cuppa and see what everyone else got up to and if you’d like to look as well just pop over to Cheryll's blog Smile

1st finish for June….

DSCF8917

this scarf is my first finish for June, can I tell you a secret…… it was meant to be something else but I didn’t have enough wool to do what I wanted  so I adapted the snowflake blocks I’d already made and added a few more to lengthen it and TA DA!!! a scarf was made. I love it and can’t wait to wear it and this one is not going to be kept in a drawer and only used for special occasions either it’s going to be worn and worn often!

DSCF8877

I also forgot to show a photo of the scarf I made for Keryn as a thank you for hosting us all this past weekend Smile

This blanket is also nearing the finish line, I just need to crochet an edge around it and it will be done but it’s HUGE! so it may take me another week or two before I can call this one done and ready to use at the end of our bed it should look lovely sitting over the top of our white jacquard quilt Smile
