one for me and one for you

I have been having a break from the granny squares and trying out a few tutorials. Heres a knitted flower which i found on ravelry and i have made this one for you, just leave a comment on this post and i will do a draw, i havn't put a broach pin on the back of this flower because i thought i could be used on anything really.

The secomd make is this lovely valentine heart which has a crochet edge, now i have had this one printed of for ages and only just got round to making it, i found it on blog land and i think it is by orange flower, but this ones for me.

Its booked....

our holidays for 2009 have been booked today.

we are going to spend Easter in Portugal with my sister in law and family.
Lucky for me my sister-in law owns this lovely apertment which she rents out. Its the first time for me going abroad, my daughter went there last year and said how fantastic it was so i have plucked up the courage to fly.

just look how lovely it looks.

in my work basket....

Right now in my work basket which sits at the side of my seat is the crochet granny squares.... again, the pile is growing though and i so want to get this finished, i started it last year then put it away but its back out again now and im hoping to have it finished this year.Its made with sugar n cream cotton yarn and its lovely n soft.The main colour is white with pastel pinks, creams, greens, blue etc. I did put all the squares out on the floor just to get a feel of how its going to look last night and i loved it.
Also just finished these new face cloths, or dishcloths, they are just the easy grandmas favourits cloth but then just to fancy it up a bit i have added some edging to them.

crochet flowers

Sorry the giveaway has still not been done, we have had a busy weekend and my youngest always likes to pick it out so we will try and get it done tonight.Last week was spent giving the house a detox, i have had a really good going through and got rid of loads, to the charity shop, recycle bins etc and finally feel like it getting junk free.
I have been making some more flowers, i did want to string these along the top of my bed but they just wasn't sitting right, anyway i have found a home for them now and think they look sweet hung over here.
Back tomorrow with the winner.

More of the knitted dish cloths have been made too, just small simple things and thats all i have to show you for today but hopefully i wil be getting the machine out again soon and back to making things.
