A couple of weeks ago I came to the realization that my UFO pile has now spread to my crochet wips as well. I have several unfinished items. I have 2 fronts of cushions that need backs, 2 blankets unfinished, and a crochet bag that I started at the beginning of this year. You can see my start here.
I wasn't very happy with my colour placement and so the usual thing happened and the whole thing went into a bag and got left there for 6 months. I decided that it surely was time to get some of these projects "finished" and decided to start with the bag. I didn't bother to unravel it after all. I just used it as a learning piece and after a couple of days and some sore fingers later, I ended up with this:
My Usual model!
Doesn't look too bad does it? I am pretty pleased with it. It's very roomy and will fit a whole pile of woolly balls in it. Maybe I will line it, maybe I won't. Not sure yet. Just going to enjoy this little finish and then onto the cushions I think.
A little stitchy update. Here is my Sampler au Bouquets. Scuzy the ring marks. I refuse to iron the piece till it is finished. Really enjoying working on this - such a simple design but oh so pretty.
I spotted this finish on Meme Rose's blog and just loved it. The link to the pattern is here and dd has decided she wants one first! I think I am going to be busy busy.
And.. here's a little friend you don't get to see very often:
This is one of our cats who disappeared the other night - quite unusually for her and reappeared the next day limping!
This morning her foot was swollen so a trip to the vet was in order. Seems she has three puncture wounds in her little paw that had got infected. Possibly a fight? She really isn't the type but maybe she was set upon in the night by a big fat cat bully. £54 for two injections and then she was home. Hiding under the table. Poor miss.
Well I have a birthday this weekend - tomorrow actually but I am moving it to Sunday as dh has got to work - all day, all night - completely rubbish but I have bought myself a cake and I have some cards to open too. I am determined not to feel like Mr Bean.
Have a happy weekend people.
