What You Doing Wednesday Week 85

I hope your week is going.
We are on the road to recovery.
It's taking a little longer than expected
but it seems to be a very strong infection.
Little Red and hubby have managed to stay
going to school & work.
I'm resting and healing.
It's been a bit scary as my throat went into spasm
and I couldn't breathe.
It was well over a minuet before it relaxed.
I had started to turn blue.
It really wasn't nice and I hope it doesn't happen again.

I've got some makes for you this week.
It's very exciting as I'm working in conjunction with Xena Knits
to design a range of crochet patterns
to work with their range of yarns.

I'm starting with their Chic 100% cotton range from Figgi Yarns.
I'm designing a set of baby pig hats
This hat design is made with 100% natural materials.
The yarn is 100% cotton and the stuffing is 100% natural carded wool.
I can't wait to show you what it looks like finished :-)

I am also designing a crib/cot blanket.
I'm calling it Lucky Candy Kisses.
I thought the colour looks like candy.
The rows are in multiples of 5 for the plain rows.
And last but not least the detailed row is made up with cross dc's
so look like x's - kisses.
I'm going to put a border round and put a ribbon in and out of the kisses.

This week has been a lot calmer so I am hoping I'll be up to reading again soon.

Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.
It doesn't have to be crochet, anything you are making
is perfect.
Please add the pin to your post & check out a couple
of other people that are sharing their work
