WIP - Crochet Blanket - Lion, Giraffe & Zebra

Three more squares done. Just a few more to go. If I keep on going like this I might just have this blanket completed this coming weekend like I had hoped.

WIP - Crochet Blanket - Ostrich & Panda

I'm definitely on a roll with these squares. I'm hoping to get this blanket finished by next weekend. Brodie has been invited to Kat's baby shower (that is who the blanket is for) and it's on the first Saturday in November. 

I have requests for three other items to be made on my to do list. One of them I promised to my niece, Kylie, when we were visiting family back in July. I think she has waited long enough, although I did have surgery so she understands why it has taken so long to even get started.

WIP - Another Crocheted Zoo Blanket

I have been getting stuck into this blanket that I am making for Brodie's friend Kat.

She wanted non-gender specific colours for the blanket so I went for blue, yellow and green for the squares. I'll be using red for the border and maybe some of the yellow again too but I'll see what how things look once I have completed the squares.

Op Shop Bargain

I love shopping and finding bargains. Especially Op Shopping. The other day I nicked into one of the local op shops on a whim and came across this beautiful handbag. Well it looks more like a tote because of its size. What I liked best apart from the flowers is the fact that it is brand new and has dividers inside. 

Right now I am deciding whether to use this bag or the panda bag I found a while ago. Angus of course said panda. He absolutely adores them.
