Baby 'granny squares' blanket

A second baby blanket to complement the pink star one. This is the male version. I had lots of ends of balls of wool and so used them up to make nine squares in the centre. Then did a border in white and mixed blue. Perhaps not the best planned piece in terms of colours but works OK I hope.

mini cross stitch

A couple of little cross stitches I did recently (thanks Clare).

Stripy Wristwarmers

This pattern was from a mag. It was designed for using up scraps of wool- changing colour each row. Instead I opted for larger blue and green stripes with a band in white. Of course it is slightly the wrong weather (hopefully no snow now at least) now. Maybe for next year or one to put in the Christmas present pile.

Me to You with daffs

I have been doing this cross stitch for a while but managed to get it finished during the sunny weather last week.

Sausage Dog

A friend made this dog and send me a photo. I had to have a go after seeing hers. The pattern was from one of those mags which gives you all the wool etc. Since I didn't have the mag, just the pattern, I went for this blue colour combo from my wool stash.

More mice

I decided to have another go at making the mice in the red nose day edition of Mollie Makes. Now I have three in total.

Couldn't resist making this little puppy.

Easter bunting

I made the little felt chicks from the Red Nose Day edition of Mollie Makes ages ago but had to wait for some material I bought on eBay to arrive to finish it off.

A flock of lambs

A lot of people liked these lambs and so I made three more (four in total- no more til next year!)

A little friend

I was at a loose end (no pun intended) and decided to make this little lion out of my super cute crochet book. The crocheting was quick, the mane wasn't!
