It has been over a week, I should update you with what I have been up to!
My priority should be a charity quilt square that I am doing for the Cats Protection quilt that we are making over on A Crafty Natter
Here is how far I have got
I had started on the one on the left, but then I couldn't find it, so I dyed some fabric yellow and started again, but this is how far I have got, so I really need to crack on and get at least one of them done!

And of course I have been crocheting again!!
Here is the wavy blanket, it needs more purple/lilac in it as it will be for my Mum  (if I can part with it lol)

This is for my FIL although my daughter has asked for one in these colours, as she wanted this one but was disappointed when I said it wasn't for her LOL

This one is just one that I fell in love with the colours, I know a lot will say That's bright  (politely) lol I may add some cream to calm it down or I may just go with the flow !!

Yesterday Wendy (no blog) and myself took a trip down south to visit Polly, we had a great day,it went too fast. But she gave me some more fabric for my hexie friendship quilt
Just look at this haul of fabric

27 yes 27 different fabrics, now please bear in mind these are scraps of fabric not FQ's well there are five that are  FQ's, as Polly saves her bits and bobs which is good practice

So I have lots of hexagons to cut out and tack on to fabric!! LOL
