Wips keep turning up..

I decided this new year I would finish a wip or two..
For every new project I start, I have to make moves to finish a wip...I was encouraged by reading Richards Blog, he has a Wip Wednesday.. You can find  Richard Here.   
There are 6 Wips that I have found for this first 6 months..

Crochet with Bendigo Pure wool.Only have the sleeves to finish.
This tea cloth has been in the Wip bag for to many years..but now I can't buy the colour I first used..
The pattern book..
Another Bendigo Pure wool 8ply..
Butterfly edging for linen tea cloth..
Baby shawl..

Last one .. A very pretty insertion of roses..
There you have it, all 6, can I do it???  I'll give it a go :))  and keep you up to date on what is progressing :))
have a great week everyone..
and I'll  See you at your place............

Baby crochet, sheep and big foot ..:))

Its windy and raining here in the North today , so I thought it would be a good time to make a start on the promise of trying No that is Completing a few WiPs..
Well I haven't started.. LOL.. But I do have these adorable boots completed ..
Crocheted in cotton..
White is always appealing, any colour can be added to make it that little bit different.. The pattern is out of a Sirdar Babies in crochet book, so easy..
Bendigo blue.
Pattern for these little beauties can be found in a Paton's book, Booties Galore.. Cotton again using 3.50mm hook..

A couple of little hats to compliment the boots.

And not forgetting the big foot of the family..
Mine :))
