Progressing nicely

This week I am putting my purple squares together and adding the finishing touches.

I really like the way this is coming together and I even got some of the squares correct.

I followed the pattern in the my Interweave crochet magazine which I purchased last month, it is the summer edition. As this is an American magazine I understand that means it is a few months old, but perfect timing for our coming summer and there are a few more projects which I would like to try.

There hasn't been much reading, but there has been lots of listening to audio books currently on the go are The Broken Bridge by Phillip Pullman I do enjoy stories where the main characters are teenagers and this one does not disappoint.

I have also been listening to American Scoundrel by Thomas Keneally which is full of lots of detail so have been taking that one in short bursts.

Okay, I'm off to join Ginny and friends in the yarn along. I am inspired each week by the variety of projects others are working on, right after I get back from NCB of course where I get to be inspired by real crafty friends.

Happy creating.
