Finshed: A Boy's Baby Blanket

This is a boy's baby blanket that I finished last week. 
I know the picture is not very good, but that is kind of to give you the basic idea of it.

Project Facts:
  • I used 4 colours: sea blue, sky blue, baby blue and forest green.
  • I used up approximately 1 - 1 1/2 balls of wool.
  • The blanket is the perfect size to fit into a pram or travel seat.
  •  I am going to give it to some friends of ours who had a baby a few days ago.
  • The edging is the only part done in baby blue
It looks very At Home on our blue sofas, but soon, it will be packaged up and sent away with the post.

Fings wot I've been doin'

Hello there once more.
I would have posted before, but things happened and got in the way, but I couldn't be bothered to sit in front of a screen, when outside the sun is shining  and the daffodils in the garden are just opening up.
I have so much to tell you.
First, about the flowers. It all started with a few primroses, mostly snail eaten, but some untouched....

It grew to some daffodils from Morrisons................

Sorry the photo's side on, but I don't know how to turn it the right way up.
Then, a snowdrop appeared.......
And finally. in all its glory, our beautiful rosehip tree in the back garden opened itself up, revealing a snowy mound of white petals and honey scent.

Here's a kinda scaled down version of it.

I have been pretty busy with crochet..........but that will have to wait for its own post.
During half-term, we went to the British Museum. As we walked along the streets to get there, the snow started to fall.
It was magical, looking at the famous museum, with the snowflakes swirling and dancing in the air.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of it, but never mind.

Last, is a little kingfisher cross stitch that I have finished.

He is now residing on my wall. 

That's all for now, folks!
