Sewing Buddies

It's been a busy week I've been making these super cute Owl sewing buddies.
The pattern is a free one from Shanni Loves and it's a quick and easy tutorial to follow.

I've been doing quite a bit of crocheting on my Granny Stripe and when I nipped into the kitchen to make a cup of tea. This is what I found on my return. Rowan isn't too impressed with the photo so it's a good job she doesn't read my blog ;)

Have a great weekend

It's the first FNWF of 2015, also my first post of the New Year. How slack am I!
I haven't been idle though, I've been busy crocheting.

Lily asked me to make her a school water bottle cover so she knew which bottle was her's without looking too hard. She wanted it in her football teams colours - Derby County ,so black and white it was.
I thought I'll do a double crochet stripe.

 I took it upstairs to show her and she was not impressed.
 "I wanted one like your blanket!" was the next sentence. So off I went back to the sofa and here is the finished article. This time I got a huge hug when I went to show her the finished bottle.

The stripe isn't going to waste as Rowan asked me to make it into a scarf. That'll be my job for today.
Thanks to Cheryll as ever for hosting. I'm off to see what all the other lovely ladies were up to last night
