Isn't that cute? He bought me chocolate, a beautiful tin with chocolate chip cookies in, & came home with flowers too! Talk about spoilt huh? I need to find just the right crafty things to keep in the tin but for now it is sitting on the piano where I keep looking at it & smiling ;)
My other big finish of the month was the Ripply Goodness throw.
I think I have mentioned a few times how much I have loved making this, but it is nice to look across & see it on the couch & even nicer to snuggle under it! At some point I shall be making more of these with different colors as the requests from family are mounting up, but I'm planning on starting a different kind of blanket soon, I have some ideas floating around in my head but I'm determined to finish off a couple of other projects before starting something new...
I have nearly finished the baby blanket, all 80 squares are complete & now I'm working on joining them all up. Hopefully I will be able to show you a finished pic of this one soon :-)
Another first this month was the two sympathy cards I made for my mom's cousins on the passing of their mom (my great aunt). I really wasn't sure about sending handmade cards but just couldn't find anything I liked in the shops. My great aunt was not at all religious & any other cards I saw had really inappropriate words so I got my stamps out & had a play. My great aunt loved nature, studied geology, & was one of two people in my childhood who had a great love of gardening which influenced me so I thought these designs were appropriate.
