I havnt been idle,here's what I've been up to.
I've been just crocheting this lovely ripple blanket.

It's lovely free pattern from a lovely lady called Lucy at Attic24.If I could master "links" I would link you to her blog,she's on facebook too.Lucy makes some beautiful items and the patterns are all on her blog - fb for you to download.
I made these two pictures for my friends daughters,one loves anything vintage the other loves goth.
So this is what I came up with.

They are mounted onto 12 inch emboidery frames.

I've joined a great gage on Facebook called wool applique,lots of lovely people on there producing some stunning work.
There is free monthly pattern,ornament of the month
This is January's OOM,my version 

So that's me caught up to date.
Lastly a few pics of my gorgeous grandkids at Christmas.

1 Christmas item a month

When I joined Narrelle at the beginning of the year I decided to make this quilt.I don't think I would have made it without doing it in monthly portions.
Now it's finished I totally love it.

I used Polycotton for the back,I'm not a fan of poly it's very slippy.I washed it twise to soften it up a bit.
I really like the pattern so went for it.
Not to bad in the end but I think washing it helped a lot.

It's a lovely bright cheerful quilt.
Thanks again to Narelle for hosting.
Have a good week all.xx

A little finish

Finally put this table runner together,love how it turned out.

Finished another pair of these,this pair are for me.
 These are nice and snuggly,fed up of buying slipper,so decided to crochet a few pairs for the colder wearther.

Couple of evenings and they are made,and you can throw them in the washing machine.

Ten different styles in here.

This is a pattern I have been trying to buy for a long time,couldn't find anyone in tha UK that stocks it.In the end I had to send for it from USA.I do get a bit fed up as it costs me double the amount because of postage.
Over the river and through the woods to Grandmas house we go.Cant wait to start this it will keep me busy over the winter months.( it will be here before we know it)

This is for a friend,

No matter how many times I make the twister quilt I love it.
I usually use a layer cake,this time I decided to use just two colours and a darker shade for the boarders .had this cut stitched ,cut and stitched again today,so I now have a flimsy .Cant decide wether to put cream or pink on the back.Whatever I decide will have to wait a couple of weeks as I need to finish other stuf before November.
All for now.
