Crafting update

Well I meant to do this a couple of weeks ago but anyway here's what I made for Christmas gifts - I can show them off now Christmas is out of the way. I made a Mario themed cross stitch picture for a friend's baby:

A double bedspread (shown on a kingsized bed so it looks smaller):

And a blanket for my dad, who slung it over his shoulders immediately and declared that it was a good fit: 

This year I'd like to learn to make enough things like chutney to make hampers next Christmas. But right now, in the middle of a cold January, even thinking about that makes me feel lazy! Back to the blanket and hot water bottle for me.


  1. They look really nice. I have yet to take up crocheting again, almost forgotten how to do it.
