Hearts and Squares and A Gift In The Post.

 Due to a few internet connection issues I was unable to post last night when I wanted to.
I recieved my PIF gift from Jenny  and isn't it gorgeous, I am dying to go to Stitch 'n' Bitch on monday and show off my goodies!!!

And the bag is magic ...its reversable so now I have the stress of deciding whether I want ease of pockets on the outside or beautiful floral on the outside!!
I'm going to keep the little tape measure hidden in my crochet basket because usually any tape measure I buy goes missing, god knows what my daughters need them for but they borrow them and never return them.
They're probably in the secret hiding place that scissors and tea spoons go to too!

I've spent a good bit of this weekend so far crocheting these delicious little squares for Kias cushion cover and as she's headed back to university very soon I need to get it finished.

I just can't resist arranging them in colour order they look so lovely like that,I was the same as a child with my crayons and pens.
I'm not sure what order I'm going to sew them together in yet though, because I don't think all ordered like I have them will perhaps just random order.
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Thanks Em,
I've just visited your blog and am now a follower!
Can't wait to see your cushion. I just love hearts
on anything. She can hug it and think of you instantly..very special.

Kate said...

Wow! They do look gorgeous all lined up like that.
I love Clara's idea that she can hug it and think of you, perfect.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

The squares and hearts look gorgeous all lined up together ~ like sweeties!

Love the pif! gorgeous!

ps, when you find the place where teaspoons & all go, i have a list of missing items that may well have found their way there too! lol!

Bethany said...

I love things lined up by color like that!
Also, I have a spot where I put everything to...I always say "I'm putting it here so I won't forget." When I move I'm going to have a field day of forgotten surprises!

E 'vero! Ottima idea, condivido.
Condivido pienamente il suo punto di vista. Si tratta di qualcosa di diverso e l'idea di mantenere.

I've just found you via Mouseybrown. I've had fun reading through some of your older posts (my Dad would have been 91 today, but died of MRSA, caught in hospital, four and a half years ago) Everytime I see someone with a crochet project, I think I really must improve my crochet skills....... I too go to a knitting group, but as ours was started by someone polite, ours is called 'knit and natter'!!

Regards Anne

So glad you liked the bag Em, I really enjoyed making it.
Love the colours in your crochet, they will make the cushion extra special, and the hearts are a great addition.

I love all the colours. You're putting me to shame. My granny square blanket would hardly cover a knee at the moment, let alone a granny!

Emma said...

Oh lucky you, Jenny does makes some lovely things...x

Hey hon, am just away to post all the lovely goodies that I got from you - sorry it's taken me this long to get my rear end into action.

Tell your daughter to be sure to pack lots of jumpers, winter is definately kicking in up here. :(

That gorgeous cushion should keep her nice and cosy though. ;) xx

Kelly said...
