No quilt pictures today – but I am in the middle of quilting another one!
Today is all about yarn and crochet hooks. I have two finished items.
The first is a small blanket – probably lap sized throw.
Lots of crocheted hexagons made first and then all crocheted together with white yarn. It took me ages because I still feel like a beginner, but I made it to the finish line. It is very warm and snugly so will be enjoyed in a month or two when the nights are cooler.
And the second item is a crocheted bunny. Not quite as simple as I thought it would be, but again I took my time and was able to finish it. This one will be used as a baby gift.
There are dozens of things I would like to crochet, but at the speed I work, I will have to be selective.
Not a lot else, but I do have news of my quilt parcel. It arrived safe and sound at its destination. It only took five days from Australia to the USA. ( I know my Aussie friends will laugh at this because we can’t even get a letter from one suburb to the next in that time!). I ended up sending it standard post, with tracking and I insured it. So pleased to have it there safe and sound.
We are finally having some Autumn weather here to enjoy, but no signs of any Autumn leaves here yet.
