It seems like just last week that I was posting about last years Xmas In July and here I am posting this years!!
Here it is in all it's wrapped glory!

And here they are in all their unwrapped glory! My partner to receive from was Sharm whose lovely blog is Country Fragrance
Look at all the Xmas loveliness!! A bright and happy xmas apron, beautiful crochet table topper, an acorn pin cushion, some lovely handmade soap and 3 packets of sweet handmade by Sharm melts (I am sure Karah will love the musk ones Sharm!!)
Thank you so much Sharm - love them all!!
My latest crochet project. The weather has been wet and cold so have been holed up inside next to the fire - plus this awful head cold and sore throat are hanging on!! I bought this yarn at Spotlight because I just cannot go past a really good bargain - it is a lovely soft acrylic and supposed to be an 8ply (well all of the other packets were so why not this one too!!) It is bigger than an 8ply (maybe a 10ply) sooo.... what to make out of it.

A nice thick baby blanket is on the go. These are the squares for the centre panel. I am doing 16 of these and joining them together. Then Around the outside I will make up something as I go along. It will be quite large but I hated baby blankets that were too small when I had little ones so any that I make are going to be big!!
No rain today but still overcast and cool - looks like another day of inside jobs and crochet!!

**PS: I forgot to say a BIG THANK YOU to our swap mumma Cheryl - pop over to the XMAS IN JULY blog and follow the links to the other participants to see what they have created and received!!
