Lately

Hello there

I've had a random assortment of finishes over the past week or so including two more of the LHN Sheep Virtue series:



Simplicity By Little House Needleworks
stitched with recommended threads, 30 ct Cocoa Linen by Weeks Dye Works


Faith by Little House Needleworks
stitched with recommended threads, 30ct Dark Chino linen by R&R

The first of August's ornaments:


This is my Joy by Little House Needleworks
stitched with GAST Country Redwood, 32ct cream linen 

Next up is the completed baby blanket, which I just need to block sometime:


Newborn Baby Blanket by Altadena Green
4mm circular needles, The Wool Company Utiku 8ply cream 400 grams

A little crochet hat for baby Milla:


Little Sister, pattern by Linda Permann found online here

Started last night is another baby blanket, this one is for my friend's baby girl due in December:


I've chosen a melon colour from the Cleckheaton Country Aran range for the middle of the blanket and cream for the outside border. It's so lovely and soft.  The pattern is from this book, which I bought after seeing it reviewed on Retromummy's blog a few months ago.

Earlier this week I picked up the lastest issues of Mollie Makes and Simply Crochet, which I look forward to reading over the weekend.


Hannah was so excited as Hairy Maclary came to stay with us for a few days.  Her school class recently celebrated Hairy Maclary's 30th birthday as a project and each student was able to take him home and then write a story about his stay.


Hairy Maclary loved his afternoon tea with Hannah, lol.

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for your visit xx
