Oh no its not what you think my friends. Although it did make you sit up and listen, admit it. The boob of which I speak is a mistake or a nearly one. I blogged the following pictures and then thought " what if she (Mum) sees them?" so I pulled them only to repost today because I am pleased with the results.
Its Mums birthday and she loves Cath Kidston so I sprinkled a little lou-lou magic over a wee scrap o' duck. I like it so much I will make another for me
This rapidly followed from a new book that I got recently, Quilt a Gift: 25 Heartfelt Projects from Quick to Heirloom Barri Sue Gaudet
Mum loved her presents. Score

The young dude is making it look considerably cool. I made it up pattern wise and used this for the image.
Well I look today and it was mentioned at the podium as being a medal winner (along with everyone else) but I am going to take all the good stuff that comes my way.

Well here it is at last. Perhaps now I am a finisher and not a maker of UFO's. Woe betide anyone who dares to sit on it at any picnic cos it'll be there last!! Mwa mwa mwahahahaha (evil laughter for effect)
Am I sad for being so in love with this blankie that I take it to bed so that it will be the first thing that I see in the morning?
I'd like to tell you that its a scrap blankie made entirely from stash busters but 3 trips to the only yarn shop I can find might tell you otherwise.
Don't tell blankie but he started life being destined for Ebay or some such other place in order to finance the next big thing. I'm in love now and we will never be parted. Never do you hear?

OOh get this. Basket from Knaresborough for full on summer picnicing and fabric newly aquired from ebay. wont it make good bunting? The basket is to house the hex blanket that I have finished today. Its busy blocking away so only a sneaky peak for now. with a few other yummylicious things
I lways find that when making something in crochet the snippings are really quite lovely so I have included them here before they went in the bin
After all that hard work I had to have a sit down and something fortifying. Ahhhh. T made them !!

I have been wanting nay trying to share what I do craftwise but failing horribly. You see its knowing where to start as I want to include things that I have done in the past (there is quite alot) All of this has confused me into not knowing where to begin. So ignoring Julie Andrews, I will not start at the very begining but do the opposite and start with what I have on the go. my WIP (work in progress) if you like.
This is the project I am most excited about even after 4 weeks. I found another blog and definately liked what I saw it was the inspirational attic24 I love everything avbout this blog and only hope that I am half so entertaining
I made the birdie from her instruction too. I am going to make lots more too.birdie
