Remember that Burnice, Linda and I started a new crochet project? Yes...you do; I showed you my 6 squares.....those ones in red, orange, pink and yellow. Well here are the 6 that Linda chose that I have done in my colours....

Just a quick one today as I am in the middle of creating something...... The British Boot Company in Camden as they stock the biggest range in the UK. Eliza bought a navy pair and I was completely and utterly smitten by a gold pair. I now have 4 pairs of DMs! Katy however couldn't see a pair she liked so we went to Covent Garden where there is another DM shop. They tend to sell much more exclusive (for that read expensive!) boots, as well as the very seasonal ones. Katy had seen a fab spotty pair online so she got them there. They gave her this amazing bag to carry them in. Eliza and I were very jealous so we managed to blag one each! At the end of half term, I had a day sewing at Linda's house. Just round the corner from her is a GORGEOUS fabric shop, The Eclectic Maker. Imagine my excitement when I saw this beautiful fabric; it has pansies on it! Now they are my absolute favourite flowers IN THE WORLD! I love their little screaming faces but as they are an old fashioned sort of a flower, most fabrics are a bit old fashioned too.

I am sure you know that it was Half Term last week...well that means I get days off in the week so on the Friday I went to Linda's. We both have several of those little patchwork 2 1/2" squares and didn't know what to do with them but Linda had found a pattern for a cushion.It was meant to be 5 squares by 7 squares with no border down the sides so that it resembled a photo contact sheet. However, I decided that I would take the idea and fit it to my own cushion. I chose to go with 5x5 squares.

What with all the rain and that we have had recently, I have found it quite tricky to be inspired by happy things! I have focused on the fact that I am not flooded; that I am better off than many in the UK at the moment, but these aren't things I can take a picture of! So for my week 5 I decided to take a picture of a Lego Day we had at school. In the morning the younger children spent the time learning how to build properly, by overlapping the joins, and how to construct a roof with supports. I have to confess that I was prepared to not enjoy this day as I find Lego frustrating in the extreme. However there was such a huge array of different bricks that I was able to build this church....complete with graves! Now I am converted!

My husband is a police officer and one of his colleagues is expecting her first child soon; a baby boy. Hubby asked me if I could make her a little something....well I needed no further excuse to get out my hook and order wool so a baby ripple it was to be! I bought several shades of blue and used a random stripe generator and this is it....
