Finished the crochet scarf yesterday and it is a lot thicker than I had intended which means it will be extremely warm. Next I am going to attempt a rug but with a much larger crochet hook.

Some of my op shop finds at Woodside last Friday. There was a 45 minute break between the boys swimming lessons, just enough time for a visit to two local op shops.
Two Johnson Brothers dinner plates.
I love this cup, most likely Johnson Brothers, it has the same Made in Australia stamp as other Johnson cups.

Over Christmas I did some more work on my Japanese Cameo Quilt. It is going to be a wall hanging and I have to do a row of half hexagons around the edge and then the binding. It has taken a while but this year my goal is to finish of the many projects from last year before I order any more fabric. There is about six cheater quilts to put together as well as three small quilts to finish off.
Just started on a scarf recently, I have always wanted to try this wave style crochet. A friend lent me a pattern but I found it difficult to follow, not having done much crochet. There was a great tutorial on You Tube which was very easy to understand, although I have made a few mistakes here and there. A bit more practice and then maybe time to try a small rug.
