I thought I'd let you see how I've been getting on with the Babette blanket and the woodland scene I started last week. I've been really surprised how quickly the Babette blanket has been coming together in my inexperienced crochet hands (if there is such a thing). I'm afraid you'll have to excuse the rather unimaginative photography...it's too blooming cold to go faffing around outside looking for interesting vistas!
I'm really pleased with how it is looking and I'm hoping I don't run out of wool. True to form I didn't check pattern requirements before purchasing the wool so I'll be crossing my fingers.
The woodland scene is also taking shape nicely. I'm totally loving free-hand machine embroidering things at the moment and love the new dimension it adds to the applique. It also fits in with my need to complete projects quickly before I get bored :)
