Pretty girly blanket

Good afternoon everyone,well its a bit of a grey,wet,windy day here in Berkshire but at least its not snowing like it is else where in the country.
I finished my pretty girly blanket 5 mins ago and wanted to show you all it.I got the pattern off line from a freebie place(cant remember which one so many out there)I used a pretty wool that changes colour every so often,I used 4 balls of wool to make this so its rather large perfect for in the pram .I love the pretty edge to this blanket, this is the first time I have done this pattern so very happy with it.Just got to find someone having a baby that wants to buy it off me.LOL
Have a great day whatever your doing.

A challenge card

Good morning,I know I know two posts in the same day I shock myself sometimes lol
Heres a card I made for the cricutolics forum (link is in my side bar go have a look)We had to use a heart and ribbon.I used the heart card cut out on hello kitty cart.The image is from a QVC tsv from Kanban so cute a little handbag full of stamps :),the sentiment is the same set as well.The paper was from DCWV christmas stack but it is a gorgeous red so had to use it.Oh and I coloured the image using my promarkers the first time they have been used this year yyaayyy.If your looking for the ribbon on this card well.....I didnt have any the right colour so didnt put any on.Hope you like.

Crocheting bits and pieces

Hi everyone,well heres a few bits I have been making over the christmas period,I love making baby blankets,not that I have any babys anymore :( and the little hats take 5 minutes to make.I am half way through making a girlie coloured blanket at the moment so will post it when finished.If anyone wants me to make any blankets I would love to just need you to supply the wool or the money for the wool and I am quite willing to crotchet till my hearts content.

Good Morning everyone,
Wow I cant beleive I havent posted since September what have I been doing????Nothing that special just the boring everyday things.....decorating the lounge,prepering for christmas,buying a new PC as my last one decided to get a virus and not let me get on it anymore,so Im waiting for PC world to come out and look at it as it finally paid off to get a insurance on something :)

I have been crotching mainly as it is sooooooo cold down in the shed that my cricut etc are sat on a table in my bedroom and there isnt that much room to bring everything up from the shed,so whenever I startt to make a card I realise I need something else from the shed (arrgghhhh)so my creating mojo has gone on strike lol.

Im really looking into getting MTC now my darling partner Tony bought me a laptop for xmas x x x love you darling x x x x so I can have my laptop right next to me when I finally start making cards again and not in another room like it is with the PC.
Ok so thats enough of me babbling on and on I have got to go check up on everyones blogs and great creations so everyone have a HAPPY NEW YEAR and hope it brings you all the luck and crafting goodies you want
