Crochet bits

I've done a fair bit of crochet lately, just haven't got round to blogging about it.  Just a couple of bits to show so far - camera battery has died and the light has gone now.  Never mind, maybe it'll inspire me to take more pics another day and blog a bit more often :-)

So, first up is a baby blanket I did for somebody at work - they knew it was going to be a boy so I chose blues but tried to lighten it up with yellow and green.  It's the same pattern as here, but I didn't join this one as I went (wish I had!) and it's amazing how the dark outer colour changes the look of the whole thing.  I didn't like the look as much when it was sewn together so I did a raised join in light blue - gave it a nice textured finish.

After that, I was fiddling about with some ancient wool (which kept breaking it was so old) and found a ruffle cushion I wanted to have a go at.  Mum spotted it and asked if I'd make her one - next thing I know I had a bag of new wool to play with so I had to abandon mine immediately and play with the new stuff :-)
Here's the end result - same cushion, just different light.  The last pic is probably the nearest to the true colour.

I'm sitting here trying to remember what else I've made but forgotten to photograph - will have a root about this week and see what I can find.

Hello dear Jo!! Wow what wonderful creations. I adore that cushion. It reminds me of the pleated ones you used to get. So clever aren't you? I love the baby blanket and the colours are just perfect. As for you blogging more, we'll see won't we!!
