You know when sometimes you start to do a dozen things at once and then think will I ever get them finished? Well that's how I feel at the minute, but you know what I don't care, honestly I don't .
Milo's blanket is closer to being finished than started which I'm quite pleased about, when you consider it takes about an hour to do just one stripe and there are 51 stripes so far. The yarn is slowly disappearing and seeing as how I'm not buying anymore for this blanket , no more yarn means blanket finished.
I just wished I'd sewn the ends in as I went along, that's going to be a job in itself.
Now, one blog I love to read and just look at the pictures is Mias Landliv, so when I saw these I just had to start one. There are some very similar covers in this months Country Homes and Interiors Magazine and they are about £50 each -- sheesh. I've never done any kind of cabling before as I thought it was quite hard -- well this pattern is really easy and is coming along quite nicely.
A while ago I was asked to make 2 bunnies , a girl and a boy and they were to look like farmers . The boy bunny is finished but I've got a couple more bits and pieces to do to go with him and then I'll start on his sister.
What else -- oh yes.. I've also managed a couple of cuties for my C.......s shop -- is it too soon to say the C word yet?
This is Elaina and Edward ( think I've been watching too many vampire shows .) Ooh is anyone else watching Vampire Diaries -- I'm hooked?
Speaking of the C word , I bought this yarn to make some scarfs for presents - if you can call it yarn anyway. I think this will be a test .
And finally I couldn't resist this softness, can you guess what it's for?
So by the end of the month I'm aiming for Milo's blanket being finished, the cushion cover finished, the girl bunny at least half way done and maybe another little cutie. Have you started on any C presents yet?
