During January I joined Laalaa's Blanket Squares Swap 2012.
So far I have crocheted these squares:-
12" Pineapple Square
6" Patchwork Square
6" Clematis Square
6" Framed Flower Square
12" Butterfly Square
I am also participating in Laalaa's Travelling Craft Box 2012. Thank you Linda for arranging both of these swaps.
The box, which arrived yesterday, was sent to me from Deb of A World of Imagination and it is full of goodies. I'm not posting a photo of the contents as I don't wish to spoil the surprise for the other recipients.
Deb is a very talented lady and she had made this beautiful card for me to accompany a gift that included buttons, material and a purse.
I loved her card so much that of the two items I removed from the box, I chose this box of greetings cards to send to my girlfriends for their birthdays
and I couldn't resist the tissue-wrapped bundle that was labelled "mini bunting". Isn't it adorable?! :)
A BIG thank you to Deb for starting off this box and for filling it with such gorgeous items. I am just waiting to hear from the next person on the list and then I will be filling up the box again and passing it on.
Moving away from crafting for a moment; at the weekend we purchased 6 of these Bernhard chairs from Ikea. As you can see the old pine chairs have been relegated to the patio! We also bought a new pair of curtains for the patio doors, but I am waiting on the pair for the window as they are currently out of stock.
Next up is the item that I have made as part of my pledge of a Monthly Make for 2012 which is being hosted by Annie.
It is also the item that I have made for my Fourth Blogiversary Giveaway.
Tah-dah! The Sublime wool has turned into a Japanese Daisy Chain Scarf.
And the winner is ....... Katie of Booty-licious! Thank you to all of you that entered my giveaway, it is such a relief to receive your replies, as I worried that no one would take part! Katie if you could email your address to me I will post your prize to you. I hope that you like it.
Sublime yarn is beautiful to work with, so much so that I couldn't resist buying some more! So much for stash-busting!! :)
I plan to crochet blanket squares with this yarn, but first I must finish off my WIPs! I guess I am going to be very busy during February!! :)
Best wishes, Pj x
