i received!! after having a poo day i got an awesome swap parcel to cheer me up.

My partner sent me a make your own granny blanket kit. she started making the granny squares for me ( i dont know how yet but love crochet and really wanted to learn) making a blanket has been on my to craft list for about a year but now i just have no excuse.

And some little granny square slippers.

i also got a skulls stationary set which will cheer up my cluttered desk at work. And some wool to make more sqaures

And to put icing on the cake. My partner is sending me a book from amazon on how to make granny squares.

Thank you lots and lots. I am most happy. xx

8  1 heart helvatica - my boyf is a geek indeed in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by designedbyiggy on: July 31, 2010 01:57:53 AM
here is a cushion although not massively impressive was my first teaching experience.

My boyfriend decided it was what he wanted to make so we brought white cotton and i made a stencil. i may have been the one to actually stencil as Ben is a wonderful web developer but not so good at drawing/ painting. Then we sewed to together. joint project really (i say joint i mean me but benj helped). the image is a lot crisper in reality. I was quite proud really.
