Soo.. I mentioned I have a thing about making blankets right?.. once or twice maybe?!
This is the latest blanket to be completed. It didn’t take long at all, and I really like the way it’s turned out. There are more pics on
my Ravelry profile.
It’s made with good quality, soft acrylic, so very practical and easy to throw in the washing machine, without having to worry whether it will be felted to the size of a washcloth when done!
The yarn stash is slowly going down, don’t have quite enough left now for another blanket, so I will attempt to use up the rest of it with a few cushions.
I really like
this pattern on Ravelry, may try out a cushion using it (though would really like to make another blanket).. Another blanket?!
Can one house have too many blankets? 😀
Would you look at my beautiful cushion by Madam Salami!
An anatomical heart, with a tattoo type scroll bearing the words ‘This is the beat that my heart skipped’ (
Scroobius Pip lyrics).
Isn’t it gorgeous? 😀
You can browse Madam Salami’s shop at
blogging, ‘like’ her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter.
I have my work displayed in the library again this month, so have been busy with the pyrography lately. I wanted to have some new and different things to display, and I think it’s worked out quite nicely this time, I’m pleased with how the pyrographed items look in the cabinet.
On the lower shelves I put in a
sock monkey, a couple of my knitting/crochet rolls and a pram/lap blanket, to give an idea of the different things I make.
What do you think?
