Happy New Year Everyone!!!!! :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you all the best for 2012 :)

We had a very nice Christmas, we enjoyed spending time with one another and family, and everything was just lovely :) Everyone liked their crochet presents I made them I am pleased to say, so everything was just perfect :)

John and I received some wonderful gifts, I will show you some of the lovely things I got, but also, we received Christmas money too from family, and I spent mine on wool, lol, I have not took photos of all the wool I bought, but lets just say I bought a lot :)

On Christmas Eve I baked John and I  quiche for our supper, yum…

and we enjoyed a very lovely Christmas Eve together, then on Christmas morning, John got up first and left me to sleep a while longer in bed, bless him, then he came up to wake me, and we went downstairs and into the sitting room, and I was greeted with this…

John had lit all the candles in the sitting room, put the fire and tree lights on, to make the whole room look so cosy, warm, welcoming and festive, and there on our little table was my morning cup of coffee, isn’t he lovely!!!

So we enjoyed a lovely Christmas morning together, drinking our cuppas, opening our pressies, seeing our lovely animals all excited at their pressies we got them, it was perfect. Among the presents I got from my darling John were some wonderful crochet books….

This crochet border book which I love, and have took photos of my favourite border patterns from it…

(sorry that the pics are blurry :) ) and also these 2 wonderful crochet books..

I plan on making a blanket using the squares from these books, then adding a border from my border book :) John also kindly got me a lovely Christmas Crochet book, a Christmas recipe book, and Peggy Coles Countryside Year (by Peggy Cole) and English Cottage Interiors book, I love them :)

So we had a lovely morning, then my dad and Pam arrived and we all had Christmas breakfast together which was lovely and exchanged gifts, here are some of the things I got from my kind dad and Pam…

( in the back ground of the above photo is a snuggie blanket which I love :) )

I also got some lovely smellies and choccies, and this absolutely gorgeous quilt…

I love absolutely everything, we are so very lucky :) Once we had all exchanged presents and had a lovely morning together, we went to Johns parents to exchange gifts with all the family and to have yummy Christmas dinner.  Then John and I came home and enjoyed a lovely Christmas night together, perfect :)

On Boxing Day, I started crocheting a blanket with the wool I bought with my Christmas money. It is a blanket I have been wanting to make since the summer, when I first saw it on the tv series, True Blood, so on Boxing Day, with all Christmas crochet gifts done, I started to make it. I posted on Ravelry asking if anyone had a pattern for this blanket, and someone did, so I am following that pattern. Here are some screen grabs of the blanket in True Blood…

I have crocheted the 35 pink centre flower squares so far, and today I will make a start on the 28 white centre flower squares, here is what I have done so far…

here are the 35 squares I have done, though it does not look like there are 35 there does it, lol, but there is :)

I really love this pattern, I am loving making the squares for this gorgeous blanket :)

And on that note, may I wish you all a Happy New Year again, and thank you for reading my blog and leaving your lovely comments :)

Take care everyone, bye for now :) :) :) :)
