more of the crochet blanket n treats for me

These are the treats for me, my daughter is a body shop consultant and i had a party for her last week, heres what i got, some lovely smelling cherry flavour shower gel, i also got the body butter to go with it, it smells so yummy and who could resist pink large nail files?

I have been wabting some of these lovely brushes for a while now.
I have sewed up the pile of granny squares i have been making because i just couldn't wait anymore, now i am still making them and adding round, it's quite big all ready but im going to keep going until i run out of yarn, its so soft.



I have just come across the lovely atic24 blog which has some of the most lovely crochet going on and where i found the pattern for this, its just a jam jar but im going to use it on my table to put pens etc in.



While doing the food shopping i picked up some mini daffs which are just the right size for my shabby chic tea cup.

Your Blanket looks LUSH!! I wish that I had invested in the more expensive wool now as the 100% Cotton Crocket wool that I have bought does not look anywhere near as thick and soft as yours!! Oh Well, I am sure that I will use it up some how!! Andrea x

I love the new smellies, I never get given toiletries. I always have to buy them for myself too!

The blanket looks wonderful, I have done mine wrong, I got my double trebles and trebles mixed up, my squares are a bit big and gappy! lol

I love that tea cup!

Yummy body shop, i love the raspberry smells they do.
But the wild cherry sounds scrummy aswell, I'll have to smell that one next time I'm in.
Fab granny squares honey, it's coming along nicely.

Hi there have just stumbled onto your blog and love your blanket. I have one on the go too but eh colours aren't as subtle as yours. I have a question for you, do you have a pattern for the lovely face/dichcloths featured in your previous post? Is it from a book or a website..really want to have a go but not sure where to begin. Any advice gratefully received. Dev X

Hi there - Your blanket looks great - I'm ashamed to say that my pile of squares is sat in the wardrobe where I can't see them and feel guilty, I don't enjoy the sewing it all together bit! - Natalie x

I just adore your blanket - it's the nicest one I've seen. They're precisely the colours I'm going for (but I don't think mine will be as big!). I've seen lots of crochet throws on other blogs but they all tend to be bold and bright and whilst they look fabulous I don't think i could live with something 'shouting' at me (I much prefer pastel shades) and I'd like my daughter's throw to be very girly too!
