  10. Hello, Just received this link to a you tube video "budgies in space" This is a project of the Bristol South West Children Hospice who are trying to make the film go viral so please tell all your friends. The more viewings they get the more money we raise for the kid's hospice These budgies are made from one of my most popular designs and I am chuffed they are being used for such a good cause and on the other side of the world. I thought it was pretty funny. Here is a photo of the budgies being launched by Rolf Harris. Thanks for Looking.
  11. Hello, Voila an afghan I finished at the start of winter. I commenced this last year as I was keen to use up the pile of textured yarns I had purchased because they felt so snugly, but then never knew what to use them for. I have call this Rocks and Rubies and it features a range of yarns within the rocky ruby red spectrum as well as a variety of textures. Some of the blocks use eyelash yarn, while others have a glint of gold. Must say I do like how it turned out. The design is from my favourite book - 200 blocks by Jan Eaton. http://www.amazon.com/Crochet-Blocks-Blankets-Throws-Afghans/dp/1931499683 I chose the more geometric blocks, and my hub loves it to bits. Some of the yarn (the flecky beige stuff) I had hoarded over 20 years ago from a jumper I once knitted. The oranges and reds are feather, boucle and other fluffy stuff from bargain bins. Thanks for looking!
