One a Day..........Week 3.




It's now 3 weeks since I started 'One a Day' and I have 22 African Flower hexagons, I'm trying to get as many different colour combo's that I can and when I got to 14 joined them together and have carried on joining each one as I finish.
I can get 12 hexagons from one ball of the cream yarn and I have 6 balls so I should be able to make 72, I might go bigger if I can buy more of the same yarn so watch this space.
Check out everybody else's progress over on Carole's blog, Gingrebread Girl and it's never to late to join in if you fancy starting that big project you've been putting off.


Today,Libby, Rach,Baby Mya and Lisa came round for coffee,it was good to see the girls and have a cuddle off Mya,she has grown so much since the last time I saw her. It was Libby's birthday yesterday so we got to sing 'Happy Birthday' and give her the presents from Rach and I.
We don't get to see Lisa very often as she lives in Germany so it was good to catch up and the conversation mostly revolved around crafting,lol. Lisa is GD over at Counterfit Kit Challenge this month and has convinced me to give next month's challenge a go,I will probably make more cards with my kit than LO's but Lisa said that is fine.
Look at these cupcakes that she bought round to have with our coffee,yummy !!!!!


Thanks for stopping by........

Your blanket is looking beautiful and is coming together wonderfully now you've started joining the hexagons together. I love the colours you're using so much! And the colours of those scrummy looking cupcakes remind of your blanket too, lol! ;)
