I'm sorry it's been a little while since my last post, I've just been so busy trying to get everyone's presents finished for Christmas! Kind of annoyingly, most of the people that I've made things for read my blog so I can't show you everything that I've made quite yet.
This is the cushion cover that I've made for my Nan...
I'm so happy with it, it's the first Dresden plate that I've ever made and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to do! I think the cutting out part of the process would have been much faster if I had a proper plastic template to work from, but I made do with a cardboard version. This is the tutorial that I worked from.
I'm attempting to complete my hexagon blanket for my auntie as I know she loves it (she already knows that this is what she's getting by the way!) but at this rate I'll still be crocheting the border/sewing in the ends on our way back to Dorset on Christmas eve!
I love this blanket but kind of hate it at the same time... I think it's because of all the colour changes which make completing each and every hexagon pretty monotonous. Oh, and all those ends that I'm reallllyy dreading having to have to sew in... help!
I'm actually really looking forward to it having a new home! I'll take a load of photo's to go on here of course before handing it over, but it feels like I'm sort of clearing a big space in my head ready for other projects that I really want to do. Does that make any sense??
Things are a bit financially difficult here at the moment and I was wondering about Adsense.. does anyone use it on their blogs? And how does it actually work?
