Having fun crocheting

I am making this snuggle blanket with an elephants head.
I am using chenille yarn and crochet.
It looks a bit strange unfinished.

But now I have the arms, head and ears on it's looking better.

Even better with the eyes..
How cute has this turned out.
It is so soft and cuddly.

Well, for anyone who wants to try this very cute pattern here is the link.
I must say that I didn't do it exactly as my yarn was much thicker than the pattern suggested. All I did was left a row out here and there, added some more and made it fit.

The girl I gave it to loved it so that's all that counts.
I'm happy too.

Go and give it a go..

Eye Spy so many fun fabrics

I joined in with Vals EYE SPY block swap.
I have now received 200 * 4" squares. All with a different fun pattern on them.
It will be fun to put them all into a quilt.

Have a look here to see what Val made..

Crochet basket

I have always wanted to make a basket with cord.
I have seen the ones with thread wrapped around cord and then zig-zagged together to make any shape you want. Then I came across this pattern. I had some old 8ply cotton that I wasn't sure how to use it up so I thought this basket would be a good idea.
I'm going to be going on a few drives so sitting in the car will be a bit tiring if I haven't got anything to do. I'm sure this will last me a while.
When I get some done I'll show the photos.

This is what I am trying to make.
