Hi all - thanks for the lovely comments on my flower keyring! Also for the comments on the cup-cosy post. I meant to mention at the time that I got the idea from Annaboo's House, here. I hadn't seen cup-cosies until then, and I love them! Hers are much more snuggly looking than mine - not to mention neater! I think I've seen a cup-cosy on another blog too somewhere, but can't remember which one...
I've been working hard on the baby blanket for my nephew - he's due next month, so I thought I'd better get a move on! Here is how it's looking so far:
Last time I showed it I was just doing the three colours - mid blue, baby blue and yellow, but now I've added a turquoise colour, just to hopefully make it a bit funkier and more modern maybe... not sure! The colours haven't come out quite right here, due to having to use the flash - the yellow is a nicer shade in real life.
I can't wait to get the squares finished and start getting it all sewn together!
Here is a picture of me with my sister-in-law and the 'nephew-bump'!! This was taken in September, so the bump is bigger now!
I hope it won't be too long until I can do a 'ta-dah' post for the blanket! It better be soon, as I think I'm getting repetitive strain injury from it - I've even started working on it at my desk on my lunch breaks!! One of the young guys at work caught me the other day and commented "that is the funniest thing I have ever seen..." - slight exaggeration maybe! :o)
