More fusion blocks done.

Last night while watching the rugby...Our All Blacks  'winning'  against the  wallybys( australia) for Bledisloe cup,...I managed to get a couple more of these squares done.  I now have 10 completed.  I have worked out I get four out of a ball of the cotton and have a few grammes left over which I put aside. I'll use this to join them around then I should know if I am going to need to buy more cotton or not.  Last week I went to spotlite store and they had a 30% sale of everything so I saved a bit buying the rest of the cotton I am using. It is by 'moda vera' called 'gelato'...50% acrylic  50% cotton  so I  think it will wash up quite well when it needs to be washed. It is nice and soft, not to stiff when crocheted up.

Today I am meant to be making 5 coat samples for "Paula Ryan' , very trendy but not my cup-of-tea really, they have lots of inverted  pleats  (7) all around on the panels near the hem.....I  Suppose they will look much better when properly pressed and finished fully.

the pile is growing slowly.

fat Norbitt having a lounge!
Last night after the game I found a circle granny to make that is really easy to do.  I will make some of these in between doing everything else. Maybe just a cushion could turn into a blanket...not sure  , I'll see how it goes.I found a tutorial over  HERE  at wisecrafts blog,   It's really clear and straight forward. .No pic of mine  yet sorry. but one on her blog of course.
And this ''Norbit" he is fatter than ever!  ..he looks like a pregnant female but I know he is not coz he had  the 'chop'!  I think he travels the  neighbor hood and eats every other cats food he finds. bye for rnow. sue.
