I'm still behind with the Granny A Day challenge. I reckon by 15 squares. But although I don't have completed squares I do at least have 15 middles.I still hope to catch up, but I'm finding it hard to find the time to do something with the squares that I've already made as well as making new squares. I am making progress putting together the red, white and blue squares though, but more on that later...

I'm not usually one for dainty porcelain tea cups but I saw this pincushion and fell in love with it. There's a tutorial on how to make it in a Sewing Savvy Newsletter on the Clotilde website. If I can find just the right cup and saucer, I might just have to make one for myself.

Speaking of baby boy, he's grown too big for the Moses basket and we've had to get the cot out :( The blanket that I made for him is way too small for it though so I'm going to undo the edging and add additional squares to make the blanket more cot-sized. I'm going to need 183! Better get cracking then...

I'd made a few test squares, several flowers and a couple of hats up until then, but this would be my first big crochet project. I found a lovely pattern for the blanket in a library book - "Easy Crochet 50 Projects for Fashion and Home" by Family Circle. The choice of colours happened accidentally as they were all I could find in the shop at the time, but in the end worked out really well. It's a little on the small side, but is a good size for the crib and is lovely and warm.
