Another surprise and CAL 95+98-105

When I sent Janette of The Green Dragonfly a bookmark for being one of the more frequent commentators on my blog she said that she wanted to send me something she had made in return. I told her that I would love to have anything she made but that it wasn’t necessary. 🙂 If you visit her blog you will see what I mean.

I sent off the bookmark and Janette did send me something and it arrived earlier this week.


What do you think it is?

A crochet washcloth with a soap inside. Doesn’t it look lovely!

I loved the addition of the little green dragonflies but of course most of all I loved the washcloth and the soap. I am going to be very clean aren’t I?

Here is the washcloth spread out.


A Hexagon! Yay!

and made in a lovely soft and interestingly coloured cotton yarn.

All lovely blues that will go well in my ensuite.

So many, many thanks to you Janettte.

But now the CAL


I am still catching up.

Square No. 95


When I got around to this one I found that it was quite straightforward just like Rachell.

Square No. 98


I haven’t straightened this out as much as I should but it is a good size.

I always find with these lacy squares that I like them less in the hand than I do on the page.

Square No. 99


This took much longer to make than the others this week but I liked the final result. I am quite relaxed about making bobbles now.

Square No. 100


I really liked the look of this in the book so I chose similar colours and it is one of my favorites.

Square No. 101


This one is okay but not very exciting.

Square No. 105


This is where the numbering gets weird. So near the end!

Again not very exciting.

The majority of these last squares that I am about to make are less interesting in my opinion but they will fill in the gaps between the ones I really like.

This is a rather minimal update this week because life has been very busy and I am still having computer problems. So it seemed best to at least make a post and then get on with  making some more blocks.

I am still getting to grips with my camera and with the bright sunny weather we are having at present, I took these pictures in bright sunlight but I think maybe the photographs come out better with less light.

Can’t win, can you? 🙂
