A Busy Week

It's been a busy week. I've sewn a few christmas gifts and I've finished my Halloween Cross Stitch and it's out with a few of my other bits.
I can't wait to get the rest my halloween decorations out.

The lovely Postman dropped a couple of parcels my way this week.
This is what Amy sent me in the Autumn Glow Swap 
There was Tea Towel with a knitted hanger, Acorn wash cloth, autumn leaves flag, pumpkin hand sanitizer, spiced chai tea bags, autumn ribbon, Jack-a-lantern socks and a chocolate ghost. 
I was truly spoiled :)

In the other package was 2  skeins of yarn that I won in a give away held by Debi.  I just had to answer a question she asked,as it was from one of my favourite films 'The African Queen' I was the first to get the answer YIPPEE !

I've also started my Granny Stripe blanket. I bought the yarn pack at Yarndale it was really handy having all the colours ready chosen. All I have to do know is get it crocheted up. I am thinking it may take a while though as it's double bed size.

I'm off to get a bit more hooking done.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Beautiful gifts! Looking foreard to see the crocheted blanket!

  2. Your crochet project is looking lovely Melanie, love your gifts.

  3. What lovely goodies from Amy! I am impressed that you have already stitched up and finished the LK piece - it looks great and I may just finish mine the same way as I received some fabric from Debbie that would be perfect. I have just started a crochet blanket too - only single bed size. I love the colours in yours.

  4. Loving all the spooky crafting, good luck with the blanket, I'm in blanket making mode at the moment too.
