|My garden has been so pretty this year, I love cosmos.|

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I blogged on here time just seems to fly. It's bank holiday weekend and once again the weather has let us down, very windy here today and very rainy yesterday so I have used the time to finish off quite a few projects I had on the go. I can never do just one thing that's too boring for me I must have a few different things going on so that I can hop from one thing to another. I'm still in Teddy Bear mode at the moment so although I'm not doing any more angel bears, I am making Teeny bears for the shoe box appeal and some tiny one's for the angels. I have a feeling this bear mode will last for a while because it's such a transportable kind of project and I can quickly crochet all the bits needed wherever I go. So pictures to be posted when I'm done.
One of the projects I have finished is a Sands Blanket. These are given to bereaved parents who have just lost a newborn. These blankets are lovely to make because it's just simple garter stitch knitted from corner to corner making a square, so you can watch TV and knit without even thinking about it. Then a beautiful lacy border to finish it off. I must admit doing the border is a bit monotonous, but it is worth it as it finishes the blanket off beautifully.
More to come later :) xx
