Its been a busy and somewhat stressful week. I've been working on more squares for Crochet-a-Rainbow and have sent my 36 off to Sarah this morning. I now need a break from them for awhile to do some other things. Here's my second lot of squares and then a pic of the whole lot.
I needed a second 7" square for the Australiacrochet group's exchange, so I whipped up this cutie which was designed by Jane.
Jane designed this square for charity so if you visit her blog and get the pattern, please consider making a few for charity. If you're looking for a worthy cause, you'll find heaps of suggestions at Knit4Charities.
Going around in circles for awhile instead of squares seemed like a good idea so I made a couple of coasters which I'll put away for something later in the year. I love this coaster pattern which I've had for many years so I can't give you a link to it I'm afraid. You can probably just work it out by looking at it if you're interested.
The other half of my bookdepository order arrived this week - whoopeee
Its just a stitch dictionary but I think I'm going to enjoy learning a few more of the double-ended hook stitches. At the moment I'm trying to decide between a tea cosy and a baby's blanket. Maybe the cosy will win out as its smaller and I like instant gratification. I find crochetnit quite relaxing and very interesting.
My real downer for the week was that one of our darling little Japanese Chins went to doggy heaven yesterday. RIP Willoughby 1 May 1998 - 31 January 2011
A grand champion right to the end.
