Umbrella Prints Competition 2014.

A year has flown by, and it is time for the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2014!

This year I decided to try and make a teddy bear out of tiny hexagons and pentagons. As you can see Mr Teddy can easily hide behind he envelope the trimmings were sent in! 

I think this is about the third lot of Umbrella Print Trimmings I have bought and it will not be the last. 

This competition has introduced me to the world of patchwork teddies and I hope to make more. Especially as my daughter loves him so I may lose him to her!

The Crochet Blanket.

Is growing little by little. Not looking forward to weaving the ends in, had better start doing them every day I think. 

Hope to finish the row I am on before Play Group. But not sure I will as I really need to make myself a cup of coffee before I head out. 

While we were in the garden yesterday this beautiful blue and black butterfly flew around us for a while.

Sitting on my poorly avocado tree. The tree is losing all it's leaves. Not sure why. I grew this from seed so would be sad to lose it.

Anyway had better go and boil the kettle, cup of coffee anyone?

My Husband Ordered A Crochet Rabbit.

His work colleague's wife has just had a baby, so we bought a cute little outfit and I popped a crochet rabbit in too. 

I used this pattern from Craftster. I have used this pattern before and still like it it is a quick gift to make for someone special.

My 4mm Hook is Missing...

And I am sure I had more than one ! Of course I can find lots of 3.5 s or 4.5 s sigh....

Will have to pop to Spotlight this weekend. 

My first pumpkins out of my garden...

A bit annoyed as they were supposed to be spaghetti squash, I bought the seeds off eBay and they are not spaghetti squash I am not sure what they are though! 

Do you know what they are and the best way to cook them?

Crocheting While the Toddler Sleeps.

Working on the blanket. Georgina fell asleep while I was running on the treadmill. Her play group was successful and tired her out. So crocheting while waiting for her to wake up.

My Interpretation of a Mood Blanket.

Not really a mood blanket, as I am trying to use it as a stash buster. Trying to do a row a day as it has almost 400 stitches per row.

So I am trying to be random in colour choice but that isn't really working right now! 

The blog I am following is -

It looks like fun. Have not been in a crochet a long for a while.
