Presents and a finished project (yes really !!!)
I was very lucky to win the giveaway at Amandas lovely blog - it arrived on Saturday and I was thrilled.
It is so beautiful, thank you so much Amanda - I will treasure it - I'm still trying to decide where it will be shown off to its fullest potential - I love the colours, how homely it looks and of course the beautiful message.
She was also very naughty and included some fabulous fabric, ribbon and buttons.
At last my crochet blanket is finished - I did a different edging to the pattern as I love the flower squares and I was worried that it would be "too frilly" - I think I like the red stripe, though I do keep looking at it and wondering if I should add something else.
Its quite a small blanket - almost cot size but Miss T and I have both used it over the weekend and as its so heavy it really does help keep the chill out.
We've lit the coal fire for the first time on Friday - I love how relaxed it makes me feel, I don't want to go out at all when the lounge looks so snuggly.
I probably wont be back now until Wednesday with my giveaway winner so if you haven't already entered there's still time
