I'm back!!

It has been aaaaaaaages since I put anything on my blog so I will try and be better at keeping up to date from now on!  I have been keeping rather busy though, and I have also grown alot........

This was taken today and I am 33+ weeks pregnant and feeling rather large!  So only 6 weeks 'ish to go and baby number 3 will be here :-)  This week a shop assistant described my bump as 'nice football!'.  More like beach ball maybe!

I have been doing quite a bit of crocheting lately so here are a few photos of recent projects.  First here's the blanket I made for the new baby, inspired by the wonderful Attic24 (you should really check out her blog as there are some amazingly colourful inspirations to be had!)  I am now addicted to making granny strip blankets and I will be making many more! I initially made the blanket far too big for a baby so the boys now have a fab snuggly-on-the-sofa-blanket which they love.  I then made a smaller version for the baby but in the same super lush colours.

I have also been making some little Pointy Petal flower brooches, very cute, colourful and fun.  I used a pattern from the blog Crochet with Raymond (another one worth checking out!)  These are quick to make up and I thought it would be good to have some ready made up to sell at the Art on the Hill arts trail I am going to be a part of this October (I'm getting stuff made early as in a few weeks I will be very much time restricted!) 

Other little projects recently have been cats which I had been asked to make as orders.  Here are the little moggies I ended up with.

And lastly, another granny stripe blanket, made for a custom order for a baby with these wonderful colours in her nursery so the blanket will match in nicely :-)

So, there's a little catch up on my recent activities.  I promise to be more active on here in future!  Right now though it's time to make some lunch then sit in the sunshine out in the garden to eat it while to boys create havoc with their sand pit and ice lollies (bad combination!).  Oh, one more thing that is worth a mention...... I got some fab coasters made up the other week with photos of our little family.  The online photo company Snapfish had an offer on of 50% off photo coasters, so how could I resist!  I used photos taken on my phone with the Android app Retro Camera (using the Pin Hole camera setting) and they arrived a few days later and are really well produced and good quality coasters!   For £4.99 plus postage I am a very happy bunny and the boys love them too!

Anyway, I have taken up enough time and space with this post so I'm off for lunch in the sun. xxx
