My September finish.... A mammoth task!!!

I have finished my ripple blanket!! Wa-hooooo I decided it would be my September finish of one of my projects and here it is.
Each row took me 45 mins to crochet so quite a few hours have gone into this but I am well pleased with it.
Since then I have made the granny square cushion to go with it. The joins aren't too good at each corner so I am going to put a crochet flower and button on each. I also intend to do a crochet border to finish it off.
It does look cosy on the little settee in the conservatory, I just have to keep Nell off it as she likes to sit out there in the sun.
When I have crocheted the border, I am starting my birthday  present for my friend.
Cross stitching has had to take a back seat for a while but I will soon be back to it as I want to stitch some more Christmas ornies. I think I have five more to do.
Its only 11 weeks away!
Happy Stitching everyone.

Hugs

I was only telling Sharon about your blanket today, she has caught the crochet bug, and I see that you've finished it. I shall have to direct her to your blog so that she can see it for herself.
