Today I have been tidying areas of my house that have been very neglected for a long time.
The amount of cobwebs and dust was a bit embarrassing!
Anyway, I was cleaning a shelf that had lots of my knitting stuff crammed in and I found (or rediscovered) this blanket I was knitting just before I learnt to crochet last year. Obviously once I got the crochet bug, my knitting took a back seat and I haven't done much with the needles since really.
But I was looking at all the lovely colours I have used in this and I think I should really get on and finish it.
So I have added to my 'projects on the go' list, much more respectable than shoved in a corner getting dusty and forgotten. I have forgotten the pattern though, so must have a hunt for it, it will probably turn up crammed in another shelf!
I have got quite a few things lined up to make at the moment. I have joined a couple of Christmas swaps, and need to make some things for those, and I have joined the 'Softies For Mirabel' Christmas craft appeal, and am making a softie for that.
More info about this over here at Meet Me At Mikes.
I have an idea for a doll of my own design, so we will see how it goes. (I actually have an idea for a dolls dress that I want to try, so have to make a doll to go with it!)
If it works out, I might make one each for my nieces, while they are still young enough for dolls.
(although I think you are never too old for a lovely doll!)
Tomorrow we are having a garden lunch at a friends place, hope the weather hold out for us, a very pleasant afternoon with good food, good friends, and a couple of nice cold bevvies, I am looking forward to it!
I am bringing salt and pepper deep fried calamari, Mum bought me a deep fryer recently, and it does calamari sooooo well!! Our friends live down the road from us so it should stay nice and hot and scrummy, perfect as a first course nibble!
Anyway, hope you have a good weekend and do something fun!
