Crochet is fun

And kind of relaxing.  I haven't posted for a few months now, life has been busy, and I just thought it would be nice to busily craft away, have a break from blogging then when I appear next, I have something to show.

I have just finished a crochet blanket that I started about 15 years ago, got bored with it then put it away. My daughter kept saying how cold the dorm was at night at boarding school.  And after getting the Cath Kidston Crochet tin and Mollie Makes magazine, I thought I would haul out the blanket and get it finished.  It was so warm crocheting it at night.  I had about 7 rounds to do, before I decided it was a big enough size for a single bed.  My daughter loves it.

Now I am crocheting the cushion that comes in the Cath Kidston Crochet tin, so my daughter will have a matching (of sorts) cuddle pillow as well.

I have done a heap of stitching, so will take pictures and put up on my blog soon.

I am onto the next sections of The Flock by Sam Sarah Designs, and I am loving the colours.  And I have been making little felt bits and bobs.  Also been out and about doing conservation work and working full time, so not much computer time I am afraid.

So I have plenty to show...see you next time :)
