Finally, I've finished my crochet blanket. I love it - the colours are so bright and cheery. It took forever to sew in all the ends so its been sitting around for far too long! Of course I've over done the number of photos but the blanket has been kicking around for far too long.
Pattern: Attic 24's hexagon pattern
Yarn: Acrylic and assorted

I recently attended the launch of "Home Sewn" at the New Dowse.
From the website "Curated by New Zealand fashion designer Doris de Pont, Home Sewn is a retrospective of the home sewing revolution in New Zealand. At a time when off-the-peg fashion was scarce and expensive, home sewing provided many generations of women with a stylish wardrobe that reflected the current couture of the fashion capitals.Home Sewn is a touring exhibition from the New Zealand Fashion Museum. "

A few bits and pieces I bought (over the last few months) for around the house. A yellow glass vase from Carterton in the Wairarapa.
A yellow cloud shaped napkin holder from Ikea (in Ireland on my trip in May). The chocolates were a thank you gift from me to a colleague.

The last of the white cotton yarn and again using Attic24's neat ripple pattern. Just another baby blanket currently cleaned, blocked and sitting ready for a new arrival.
Not sure how practical white is for a new baby but I love the ripple look.
