(not that I'm that good anyway LOL)
But at least you get to see my new blanket.
I love it.
It is so snuggly and warm on a chilly night.
I'm not to keen on the edging, a bit of a quick bodge job,
but the nice thing with crochet is that at least
it's easy to undo when I have the time
(and inclination *blush*) to redo it.
I got around to doing some new cushion covers too,
and now I'm on the lookout for more fabric for some larger ones.
The green check fabric was a real bargain,
75p for 4 napkins from a charity shop,
and I've made 3 covers from them
by adding some stash fabric (that was free!)
I made 2 small cushions from teatowels,
they were a snip from home bargains,
part of a pack working out at 75p each.
The other fabrics were a little bit more,
bought by the metre, but still came out
very cost effective, so I'm well pleased.
Over the last few days I've been making other goodies too,
like these lovelies from the Springtime crafting book.More to come too. They are lovely to make,
though I did change a few things
here and there to make them "mine".
Hopefully, within the next few weeks I'll be putting
some of my new makes in my blogshop.
I'll post a link when I have. I've been thorough spoilt this week, receiving 2 swap parcels.
The first is from Debbie, for the January swap at the
Shabby Chic Cafe. Lots of loveliness and yumminess,
especially her famous bunting.
It's wonderfully well made.
And, I believe, it's available for sale.
If you pop along to her blog
I'm sure there's a link where you can buy some.
The next parcel I got was from Elliweb,
for the February swap.
Again such generosity.Lots of lovely goodies,
including a beautifully handmade fabric bowl.
I love receiving and sending swaps,
it's such a "feel good" moment in life.
So there we have it. My photos. Enjoy.
With love and blessings in Christ,
