Towel and Tea Towel Toppers

Here are some  hand towels and tea-towels I added toppers to recently.  I suppose you could say I "altered" them.  Now they can be hung from any knob, bar, or hook you have in your kitchen. The people who have Agas or range cookers love these. Putting a crochet topper on your Tea towel might solve the problem of the wandering Tea know when someone takes your freshly washed tea towel and peels an orange into it...

Pink and White baby blanket

I have created this blog to help me keep track of all my crochet and fabric makes.  I already have a papercrafts blog here but sometimes it can look messy with too much of a mixture of crafts.  
Today I finished a baby blanket, a present for a friend of my husband's who has just become a Grandfather for the first time.
 The yarn used is Tivoli Pearl Dk mainly pale pink with white stripes running diagonally.  The basic pattern is based on Sirdar 3135 but I added the white stripes and the edging was made up as I went along using up the yarn.

In future I hope to share some of my own patterns and designs with you.
Happy hooking,
