I had my hand strapped up for a few days to stop me over-extending it but I could still crochet. So I did. Using some of my new yarn I made a few more hexagons.
I am just so in love with this yarn - it is a joy to work with.
I managed to get the quilting finished on the Christmas Wallhanging
During the week I wrote the instructions for a new block. I made the maple leaf in class this week
It had a nutella core.Unfortunately I am on a countdown to Christmas diet and couldn't try it but it looked (and smelled) gorgeous.
I decided to make the maple leaf block (9") a bit larger.
So I cut some strips and added them, log cabin style to the block.
Now it's 18" square. It could be a cushion front but I think I will turn it into a table topper. The fabric is from the Hallo Fall range by Sandy Gervais. There's lots of gorgeous oranges in it.
So my butterfly brain has leapt from project to project this weekend. I love it!
Just to finish with a smile - a picture of Ben blowing out his birthday candles - ahh. He didn't seem too traumatised about Peppa Pig blazing away on the floor. He also didn't notice that she didn't have any legs. They were made like cake pops, using cake crumbs and buttercream and then moulded into shapes. William remarked that the 'truffle things' in the fridge were 'lush'. Yes, he had eaten her arms and legs. Luckily he had left the ears and I managed to make some arms with left over crumbs.
John and Steph are taking their little family off to Tenerife for a week for a well earned rest. It'll be quiet without them and I'll miss them but - whoop whoop the (F1) weekend is all mine!
