A finish... and some progress.....


I finally finished this small blanket which has been crocheted....


I'm not a skilled crocheter and I had to do a fair bit of pulling to manipulate it into shape... but it will be warm for someone....

I have another I started using up scraps from my Ripple blanket I did last year.... I need to relearn what I was doing but there isn't too much more on it to be done.

After a bit of a relapse I have started back on my Dutch Treat blocks ..... this one has been finished recently.... I am going to try and focus on them for a while in the evenings....


My Tuesday machine sewing saw my hedgehog blocks put together....  There is still more work to do on these, including borders....


I also managed to get the borders on all my Angel Story blocks..... now there are 320 2 1/2" blocks to cut and sew!!! 


Some time ago I showed some stitcheries that had been given to me years ago..... I sewed them onto some background and Hubz wanted to frame it...


 - so now another picture is up (and yes, I know the pictures are all wonky) ...…

Righto, Gotto Go ….. time to put my feet up and stitch a bit ….

Nice warm blanket you crocheted..
Love those Hedgehogs , your Angels look fantastic and great to add another DT to the rest.
Your wonky pictures look good.

Love your idea to stitch the little pieces onto a background and frame them, so you can enjoy them, but they are protected by the glass. They look great!

Great finish with the crochet blanket. It looks very snuggly.
Both quilts are looking wonderful with the progress you have made.
How good to have the framing done as well AND to have it up on the wall.
Very impressive.
