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

  1. Aren't they just treasures. Glad too see the first one hasn't gone to waste.

  2. I'm still giggling at your daughter's response as I can still hear my daughter crying out in similar fashion!

  3. You are such a wonderful mother. Glad the other one has not gone to waste.

  4. Love the bottle cover, what a great mum you are :) Barb.

  5. Hello Melanie,
