Some playing around and a new baby girl.

I got some of that laminated fabric and decided to do some doily's with it. I didn't want just plain edged ones and felt the need to do some crocheting…so

new doily (1) (Small)

I got some cottons and decided the dark pink one would look nice first. I will use the other colours soon.

Just a simple double crocheted edge after sewing blanket stitch all the way around.

I am pleased with it and have enough of the fabric to do more with the other colour cottons crocheted on. Something different and nice.

I have also made a few crocheted flowers. They are a bit loose and I need to use a smaller crochet hook to get a tighter tension. But they are easy to do and fun.

At the moment I have snuggled up on my lap our new baby girl. I got her a couple of days ago and she has been to the vet for her immunisation needles and next trip there she will get her micro chip and more immunisation needles.

But isn't she gorgeous? Now you know why I couldn't resist. Her name is Bella and I think she is going to be a spoilt little girl. *grin* She is white all over except her ears which are a champagne colour. She is a Shiatsu/Maltese and so little.

Plus its the 1st of June here so that means Block number 7 for my Out Of The Box BOM.

7 Blocks Seven

Download it HERE.

I love strawberries and snails have always intrigued me with how they carry their house on their backs. And little mice I love them too with their little ears sticking up and ladybugs are a favourite too. I put the strawberries there for them all to have a little munch on hehehe.

Don't forget Dawn has hers available to download too. I went thru all the ones on Flickr yesterday and was delighted to see everyone's and how you all done yours. They all look so good.

I tried to put blocks 6 on my sidebar but for some reason I can’t add to it. I will get it sorted out soon. Plus I put my blocks in the Flickr group and they aren't showing today. Oh well! All this techno problems.

I hope you enjoy sewing my Out Of The Box BOM and I look forward to seeing yours done. Have fun!

hugs to all………
