Finishes!

This week I have manged a couple of finishes!


I have finished my crochet blanket. (Lucy's Cosy Striped blanket) I think I started this in November and have worked on it steadily on since. This is a record for me on several counts, that I have actually started something and continued working on it without getting distracted by something else and also, that I have crocheted something so big! I loved doing every stitch of it, so much so, I have ordered the yarn to do another one for DD. The colours for this are inspired by a Cath Kidston tin she owns.

I have also finished this little table topper that I started a couple of years ago, it just needed binding, it took a couple of hours to machine the binding on and then hand stitch it down on the back! Why do we do this, get something so close to finishing and then abandon it?

I have also jumped on the 'Wild & Goosey' band waggon that is going on over at Quiltville's Open Studio on Facebook. This little block is paper pieced and measures 3.5 inches! They use quite small scraps and are fun to do!
