Some progress

I have started crocheting another blanket. Thanks to Sue ( Mrs Twins) for finding this pattern, you can find it here. I had to take the photo with a flash as it was getting dark and the colours looked weird without the flash. It probably would have been better if I waited until the morning, but I am impatient and wanted to post about it tonight.  I have made a couple of re-dos as the pattern is not exactly great and is weird in places. If you are a competent crocheter it is fine, but I would stay away from it if you are only just starting. 

This is hopefully what it will look like when it is finished, although I am using a different colour palette.

I have also been sewing and actually pieced together most of my next quilt top.This is as far as I was able to get with it. I have had to order fabric for the borders, and they probably won't arrive for another 10 days or so.  It is Breath of Avignon by American Jane.
I am a teensy weensy bit annoyed with those two, blue with green, centre blocks.  I spent ages on the lay out trying not to let that happen. I have checked back through the photos I took and it is exactly how I had it laid out. It just shows you how you think you have it looking perfect and bam, you don't. I am not annoyed enough to unpick it as I am sure it won't  be so obvious when the borders are on. Fingers crossed!  I am still trying to come up with a name for this one.

Another photo of the view, this was taken early on Saturday morning, just before the rain set in.

This is what I found when I came home later.

On my bed, messed up my cushions, hmmmmmmmmmm. Mr Innocent.

Blogger is playing up again, this time it is messing with the font.  The font size keeps on changing and won't let me change it back, aaarggghhhhh!


  1. Wow @ your quilt! That's beautiful. I hadn't even noticed the two offending blocks until you mentioned them so consider them "disappeared into the general layout". You're on fire with all your quilts and general craftiness.

    Again with the crochet ? I'm going to have to learn so I can keep up- nah - it's never going to happen...

    Your ever changing font makes your post interesting. Every one will just think you're being artistic.

  2. Love the crochet, love the quilt top!!!
