Birthday Parties and Baby Blankets x x x

Hello my loves, sorry my posts are a little erratic just lately. I feel sometimes that there are just not enough hours in the day, I'm sure you all feel the same :) And sometimes my addiction to crochet (Instead of getting the lap top out) just takes over, well I do need to show you guys what I've been up to every now and again ;)

Well, I've loved crocheting the baby blankets and last week I finished my third. They're very quick, I make them 5x7 squares. Just big enough to fit a baby's cot.
This time I decided to make a baby girl blanket. Anita has not long got in a wide range of colours of Stylecraft DK. The colours are fab, I'll try and take a pic of it all at tomorrow nights Knit 'n' Natter.

I chose two colours to add to my stash for this blanket.....
A gorgeous pink and a fab raspberry.
I managed to sneak part of my stash in the house without anyone noticing!....
Well they've not said anything yet!!! Tee,hee. Maybe its because they've seen me frantically crocheting for the Christmas Craft Fair. (Not long now x).

Anyway, this is how the finished blanket looks....

Soooo pretty. With a gorgeous shell edging.

I've labelled and priced this up already.

My inspiration for this blanket came from meme rose blog. I'm so pleased with it, that when the mad rush of the fair is over I'm going to make one for my big old king sized bed ;)

I've also been making these....

Flower and heart key rings.

I've also made this....

Little bunny.

My stock is definitely building. Let's hope I sell some of it!

If you live local to Nottingham do try and come by the Christmas Craft Fair. It's on Saturday 8th December 11.30-3.30pm. It's at Carlton Digby School NG3 6DS.
We hope to raise Lot's of money for sensory equipment for our children :)

Well what else has been going on around here? I've saved the best till last. It was the gorgeous Miss Daisy's 11th birthday on Friday 16th. She had a great time. She had friends around for pizza and a DVD. Six littleish people ate their way through four huge Domino's pizza's followed by cakes and a sweetie platter. She got some lovely presents and Lot's of money. We're going into town on Sunday so she can spend it, on clothes no doubt ;)

Here she is with her Auntie Emma getting ready to blow her candles out.

And yes she did have her pj's on. As it was children in need day all of the children in her school went in their pj's, so they came to her party in them as well!! One of her friends had a sleep over and they stayed up to watch pudsey.
I forgot to show you this.......

Our Lego Pudsey, we bought him from the Lego shop in Liverpool x

Well that's my news for now my loves, I'll be back soon ;)

Night night for now and happy crochet x x x
