Happily feeling blue!

I'm still staying positive about the blues in the Love Birds design......


...it's a bit boring but also quite easy to stitch....not too much concentration required....and it's nice to see it progress....maybe not as quickly as I would like! I keep seeing so many other designs that I would like to start.... no doubt you can relate to my plight :) 

Another few rounds were put into my crochet blanket.....


...it's hard to photograph it so that the pattern shows. It's really nice now that  it's getting bigger that the yarn colour change is taking place almost on each row now. This is another easy project to crochet and doesn't need too much concentration, so it's great to work on while watching the TV.... now that I've said that, I'll probably make a huge mistake and notice it and end up unraveling it all!

My starteritis seems to have  been cured....not sure if I'm coming down with finishing-it-off-itis as I do have a couple of finished finishes (if that makes sense!!!) Here's the little teddy stitching that I posted about a couple of weeks ago all finished and made into a card.....


And then there was another piece that I stitched wayyyyyy back before Christmas and was languishing at the bottom of my stitching basket......


...yay.....another finish....at least one person will be getting a stitched Christmas card this year :)

Who knows what other things might be finished off this week if the finishing-it-off-itis takes hold!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Those blue birds are growing nicely with the blues--great job!!
And I just love the colors in that blanket you are doing--I am a knitter--but you do make me want to pick up a crochet hook and make one too--
great finishes--

Blue birds is coming along nicely, I like to do the tedious fill in parts when I'm tired and don't have to concentrate. Love your blue blanket but I'm really amazed that you stitch cards! That is so much effort, I certainly hope they are appreciated. They are just darling and my favorite is that adorable rabbit! Mary

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog, now I've found your lovely blog too :-)
The blue birds are just lovely, and the cards too, are they a kit? I haven't seen cards with a cut out like that.
Pretty colours for your crochet blanket, and I know what you mean about starteritis, I am trying so hard this year to only have a couple of projects on the go at one time, but it's so hard when you see such wonderful things on blogs!
