Baby blanket

Hello strangers!!! Im back for an update. The hooks have still been going madly but the projects somehow fail to get to that completed stage! A huge thanks to Bec who made me a gorgeous notepad cover for my birthday, Im am going to be putting it to real good use and noting down all these UFO's that I need to complete, and then get stuck right into them! But here is one that I CAN share with you, before I wrap it up and send it off as a very belated newborn gift (the baby is 12 weeks old already!!)

My camera never fails to disappoint me when it comes to capturing the true colour, especially the green which is very strong IRL. But still, it gives you an idea of how it turned out anyway. The square pattern was actually from my CAL project that I am working on for this year. This was one of March's squares (I havent even started Aprils!) Here is a link to the pattern.

So hopefully seeing that winter is fast approaching, this lil bubba can get some use out of her new blanket.

Rainbow Stitching...

Wow, it has been a long time between posts for me!

I have started to get back into the sewing swing this year, but so far most of my projects have been part of my challenge that I set for myself this year - a year of handmade gifts. It's going well so far, if you would like to see what I have been up to click here!

Recently we got together for a craft night again - with a rainbow theme this time! We hope to use our projects from the night as part of a new header for our blog so keep an eye out for a few changes.

My project from the night was a rainbow butterfly stitched onto cotton using some nice bright embroidery threads and a simple back-stitch. At the time I wasn't sure what I would use the embroidery for but have since thought of a good idea for it's use - stay tuned!
