I hope you all enjoyed the festivities, as we did, such a simple family time much cherished.
We played lots of silly games, wore paper hats and fell asleep before the middle of Harry Potter! great day!
I hope you all had a great time too. I know that I will soon have to take the decorations down but I love the Christmas lights and do miss them! I know I am soppy!!
I must show you the finished COT blanket, managed to complete this just before Christmas so that my friend could give it to her daughter on Christmas Day
As you all know, I did struggle with this project but I was very happy with the final result. The edging is in crab stitch, which I haven't done before, you make double crochets working backwards around the piece of work, feels really weird at first but makes a very neat edging. The blanket was a success and the baby loves being wrapped in it, so I am happy.
My other project which I also finished just before Christmas was a glasses case for my friend, which I made up, she wanted quite a narrow one to fit in her evening bag
Sorry, second picture is a little blurred, but hopefully you can see. I made it in crochet cotton adding twisted ridge stitch in cream. I lined the case and added a little pearl button. I was chuffed with the results and my friend was pleased.
I am dying to tell you about the party and my cake and all, but I know I will rush it, so I will wait until the New Year, but Mum is still in shock!! he! he!
I am off to put my feet up for a while before we hit the village pubs tonight for New Year, so may I thank you for your friendship once again and hope that 2010 is full of special things for all of you and your families.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Have a good one!
A toast to you all!
Speak soon xx
