Some baby crochet

Hello all - I hope that you had a good weekend?  A usual busy one here, and a craft fair yesterday. This went ok, although it could have been a bit busier! Mind you, we had clear blue skies and lovely winter sunshine, so I can't blame people if they were out enjoying the day lol!

I had the pleasure this evening of delivering a baby blanket that I had made to order. When I did a craft fair a couple of weeks ago, a lady wanted a baby blanket in the ripple stripe but in mixed baby colours - it was to be for her sister who was due to have a baby soon but they didn't know if it would be a boy or girl! That's the joy of having one "made to order"! You can pick the pattern, size and colours!  Anyway, I had completed this and delivered it today and I'm pleased to say that she was thrilled with it - I just hope her sister is as well when she receives it!  But I thought I'd share a few pics of what has been keeping me busy lately (apart from crocheted Christmas stockings and making Christmas cards!)

As you can see, I picked a selection of 'baby' shades of wool, with a few brighter shades mixed in as well.  But it's SO hard to do 'random' stripes of colour, so I'm hoping I achieved something near it! 

I added a 'shell' shaped edging to the blanket, which is cot/pram size, to finish it off. It was a pleasure to make and I'm just hoping that the new mum likes it too.  At least she'll know that it's unique lol! 

And I've got another couple of projects on the go now to keep me busy. I think the crochet hook has to be surgically removed from me every evening!  So many hobbies, so little time....

In between the list of things I need to be getting on with, I promise to make some time this week to try and catch up with everyone's blogs. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments, they really mean so much. And a very warm welcome to the new followers - I'm so pleased that you like my crafty creations enough to want to follow me! 
I hope you enjoy your week - whatever you have planned.
Back soon,
