That was my week !


I've had sick kids for most of the week so haven't gotten a lot of crafting done . It was a good chance to catch up with paperwork and a little designing . I did manage a bit of crocheting for my daughters blanket , she's 11 now so it should be a lovely 21st present !

I like the colour of your daughter's quilt. Will you be joining with the same wool or a contrast colour?

Clare,
Pretty crocheted squares- I love pink and purple together- I also love buttons too- I have some of my grandmothers and a big tin of my own _ I used to make clothing and actually sew on buttons LOL- Now I just make quilts and play with buttons.
Thanks for coming to visit my blog- Do come and visit again.
Regards,
Anna

We have the sicky bug in our house too though it's me, as well as the kids, who is sick. I hope your kids feel better soon ~

Lovely squares! After reading comments, maybe I shouldn't have started the knitted bed throw/cover recently. I can't believe I was thinking I may actually finish it for next winter. LOL
