Using up some of my left-overs

           D'you know there are certain stages in your life when everybody around you seem to be doing the same thing at the same time? Like starting dating, having boyfriend/girlfriend, getting married, etc?  Well, I'm in the stage when all my friends seem to be having babies! And it's great, 'cause I love making baby things. Small, colourful and funny things for them. They're  quick projects, instant gratification.

For this new baby coming in November I've made a scrap blanket. I love working with scraps, you never know how the final product is going to look!

Well, this is the result. I quite like it, hope they (baby and parents) do like it too.

  For the edge I just made some rows of sc, one dc and some picots, I think they're so cute!

And while I was at this, I've started making colourful little hexagons I don't know exactly what for, but I'm making them, something will come up!

                            And that's it for now, thanks for visiting and see you around! :)

  1. SEE!!! here I am!!!! That is a very pretty blanket you made for your friend. I like baby stuff that isn't all pastel and light colours....the babies can't see it, so the brighter colours will keep the baby interested!!!
    Maybe someone else will turn up with a baby bump and you can use the hex's for them!!!
    Have a great weekend Pilar....

  4. I think 'they' will all love your gorgeous baby blanket, I know I adore it.
    I think you have the most wonderful 'scraps of yarn'... I still don't seem to be able to let loose & not worry about if a colour finishes a row or not... but I do keep trying. You are my inspiration.
