Whoop Whoop

Well being that its only the 4th of January 2013 i think i have done well to finish 2 projects already.
 
 
First up is a pillow i started ages ago ~Click for original post~ This is for my niece , I had hoped to have it done for her birthday but that didnt happen, and then i thought it would make a good Xmas pressie, well that didnt happen either.Well its all done now. When i have finished something for her older sister we can take them over.
 
 I have also made my very first bootie. I have always wanted to make boots and mittens but cant read a pattern. Any crochet i have done before my Nana has explained or i have winged it. This time i read the pattern and you tubed bits i didnt understand and after roughly 90mins of swearing the first bootie was made!! Its not perfect but i made it without any help so i am very pleased with the outcome. (Its a purple boot not blue like the pic makes it look) Now i just got to wait for my daughter to grow into them.

Wow, that's a really achievement on the crotchet... I tried it once and fell out with it. I try to tell myself it's because I'm left handed, but I suspect that it's just because I'm useless!

Cute pillow finish and the little bootie is adorable. The little bear is so sweet, that must have been a fun one to stitch.
