Birthdays and some crochet


Our little miss turned 3 at the end of June.  She has been telling everyone Ma was making her a blanket. We were still ill with the flu so the blanket was quickly made just in time for her special day. I used a granny square for the Centre of the blanket and continued to add rows until it was the size I wanted. It was so easy and quick to make. 

I used the you tube video by Bella Coco.

I used a Caron cake for the centre of the quilt and added one 100 gram ball each of pink and cream.   The reverse quilter made the fringing. We also gave her a little pink and purple handbag and popped some coins, some tissues and a chap stick in the bag. I am hoping she will stay out of my hand bag, last time I lost an expensive lipstick.




My Birthday was not long after. We had a morning tea and Matisse blew out the candle. I received a bunch of flowers and a Spotlight card, Lucky me
