FAT QUATER BIRTHDAY CLUB 2015


This year I participated in the Fat Quarter Birthday Club run by Cheryll .  My Birthday was last Tuesday, 22 September and I hadn't BLOGGED about it last week as I was the recipient of a very nasty stomach bug which is going around everywhere in Brisbane apparently.  We were out at dinner for my Birthday when it struck me, I spent most of the night in the restaurants toilets..... It wasn't pleasant and it was by far the worst Birthday ever.  It hit me soooo bad, I lost 3.3kgs in 2 days and I only came back to work Monday of this week.
 
In this photo of my gifts I am still waiting to receive 4 Birthday gifts, 3 have now arrived and I am now waiting to receive one.  I will do a post with everyone's gifts when I receive the last parcel......
 

Cheers

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

WOW these come around too quickly, I cannot believe it has been 365 days since it was my Birthday in 2014.... The day didn't get off to a good start with a 2 hour 35 minute commute to work. A crash on the M1, it would have been longer only a big thank you to #bobcatsuperhero who stopped and unloaded his bobcat and cleared the trees and debris off the road to open up lanes. 

Morning tea at work, so yummy this Strawberry Cheesecake from Costco with a lovely cappuccino..
We are staying in Brisbane tonight and going out to dinner with family and friends.

BABY BLANKET

Another crochet project completed..  I love this cluster pattern, this is the same pattern as the green, yellow and cream blanket I made recently.  I love this colour combo, it is a great size for a baby cot.  This is not made for anyone in particular, I just wanted to make it and was easy to do watching TV at night and filling in some time.
 

This is a close up photo of the pattern and the edging,.

NEW FABRICS


East Coast Fabrics at Burleigh is closing down and their entire store of fabrics is $2.95/metre.  My dear hubby took me there last Saturday morning and this is what I purchased.  There was so much to choose from and with no particular projects in mind I finally decided on these fabrics. There is 15 metres of fabric amongst this lot.
 

I just love this fabric.
 
These two are backing fabrics which are 250cm wide and they were $5.00/metre .


All their habby items for 1/2 price, I just stocked up on a couple of needles and this body tape.


Cheers

HAPPY Monday everyone.

ENTRELAC CROCHET


I've been interested in crocheting a baby blanket in this style for a while now and recently found out it's called "Entrelac" crochet, it is a French word meaning lattice. I found a tutorial on Utube and taught myself from watching the Utube videos...  I started with the two white squares in the middle and using alternate colours you just keep going round and round.... I have posted three photos of three different stages to see it growing. 
 
 

 
This is how it looks so far , I have only used 1/2 ball of yarn of each colour so far.  It's not going to be big, for this first practice one I'm just going to use 1 ball of each colour and it should be big enough to use as a pram cover.  I'm really enjoying it and having fun...


Cheers
