Round Robin complete and a couple of RAKS...

raks

...are winging their way to two special people. They don't know it yet but they will in the next day or so. Hope you like them recipients!

What else have I been up to?

I made a tin can cozy.

Actually I also made a bigger one for a bigger tin but it was a bit loose. DD doesn't mind though and she now has it in her room. I also made a blue stripey one for the bathroom but dh was like... "Why have you put a baked beans tin in the bathroom??" Men - they just don't get it! I might make a few more for pens and pencils and things. They are quite handy and rather addictive.

My Round Robin got back to me from Julie and here it is in all its robin glory!

Perfect. Thanks everyone. Great job. Now I need to make it into a cushion.

I also had a play around with a new App on my ipod touch. It's a Kaleidoscopic camera. I took some pics of my crochet and here are a few of the pics. Aren't they cool? I think I could get some of these printed off and make a bit of a collage/mural/picture with them. These were only my first attempt so some of them might look a little fuzzy.
