There's a kind of hush

All over the house - yep it's that time when the holidays are really really over.Youngest son went back to Uni yesterday-so all is calm and quiet-until l middle son comes back from his few days away tonight..
My Project Life box still hasn't arrived but it has finally left Canada- yay! I reckon I need to get some page projecters and start putting some pics in soon. I don't know how long it's going to take. Who knows,it could take weeks yet I suppose....
My red,white and blue blanket is finished now,just a couple of ends to sew in.I'm really pleased with it and think I'll make another one in different colours.








This is it folded into four - it's always difficult to photograph these all in one.

.....and  now I've started a pram blanket that's double sided for a friend at work's daughter who is due in May.
I used to make this years ago and managed to find the pattern on the net.She knows she is having a girl- so pink and white it is!

White side

Pink side.... can't wait to get on with it !
I worked late this evening so now after cooking dinner and clearing up it's time for a nice cup of tea,a sit down,and a bit of 'Silent Witness' on tv..

A beautiful blanket....I still have the crocheted pram blanket that was made for my DD over 20 years ago!
Have just watched 'Silent Witness' myself....one of TV's best programmes.

That blanket is gorgeous, sure the pink and white one will be equally as lovely.

Just love your red, white and blue blanket. I can see why you want to make another one as it is so beautiful.
The pram blanket looks so soft and cushy. What a wonderful gift.

Your red, white, & blue blanket turned out so pretty, Denise! I love it! And that little pink and white number looks amazing. Can't wait to see it completed! :o)

That first day when they've gone back to college and you're on your own can always be a challenge, can't it. I had that day on Friday. The blankets are lovely - two lucky little ones will enjoy snuggling up in those.

I remember those double sided blankets - the pink and white one is so cute.
Very quiet around here too, takes a while to get used to doesn't it :-(

Oh, how lovely is that blanket? :-)

I hope you manage to enjoy the peace and quiet, and that it isn't too sad and lonely feeling for you xx
