grey

 
It's a grey day here today and is now also pouring with rain.  A good day to stay inside.
 
So I thought I would brighten your day (and mine) by showing you some crochet projects I have been working on lately and also some books I've been reading....
 



This will be a lap blanket in pink, green and cream...


It's finished now, and has been given to a friend.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a finished photo....



And this is my 'Stanley' blanket that I started while still living in Stanley in colours to remind me of my time there...the sea, sky, sand and plants (mostly grasses and lavenders)...


You can see the colours better in this picture.  I was also reading this book from the library while I crocheted...





And I had all these bits and pieces of yarn left over from other projects, so I decided....




....to make some cushion covers!  The one is finished (a 14 inch square) but I need to get a cushion insert for it.  Still working on the other one...



And I've just finished reading this very interesting, informative and entertaining book about a way of life that is foreign to most of us.  You can read some reviews about it here 



Back to the crocheting....

  1. Nice work Lynda! I've been doing some crocheted "footy" rugs for the grandchildren for christmas - I'll be popping some photos onto my blogs in a day or two. I have face washers to go in the middle which gives the theme (an idea an elderly lady gave me when we were both sorting through wool at Spotlight a while back).

    Oh, and PS..... Just love the cover photo you have - that's right in Deloraine isn't it?

    1. Hi Sharm - yes...the photo is in the park just near the road bridge over the river.

      Will look forward to the footy rug photos. xx
