Tuesday again! Time is marching on this month – it’s going so fast!

I still haven’t managed to add a square to my Square Swap Blanket every day, but I’ve almost joined three more. On the other hand, I have completed the doily. It’s blocking now!! And then it will be off to the post office.

As an aside, I really enjoyed listening to Richard Hawley’s album ‘Standing at the Sky’s Edge’ while I was ironing this morning. I wondered if anyone else had heard it.

So photos…

Square Swap Blanket – it’s coming along!


Blocking the doily


I’m off now to check out the others taking part in Tuesday’s Tallies over at Gingerbread Girl.

Happy Tuesday xx



Tuesday’s Tallies October 10, 2012

Don’t Tuesdays come round quickly! It definitely doesn’t feel like a whole week ago that I began with the Tallies once again.

And so on to progress made…

Not as much as I planned with the blanket as other projects took priority. I had to finish a teeny tiny pair of socks and a hat for my new nephew, and I started a crocheted doily for my cousin’s wedding anniversary. She got married when we were only 18 years old, and next week she has her silver wedding anniversary – that’s 25 years! Totally awesome. She lives far away from me now so I thought a doily would be the ideal gift to go in the post.

And photos…

The Square Swap Blanket – so far!



So, that’s it for me. I’m off now to Gingerbread Girl’s blog to check out all the others in Tuesday’s Tallies!


Happy Tuesday xx
