Wow it is Sunday again!
I am beginning to realise that lists and plans are not compatible with me. I like making them, but somehow I do the opposite! But hey, I am retired now (since last December) and I don’t have to follow a schedule.
I was going to work on my Around the Bases but a friend asked me to do a Baby Blanket for her soon to be granddaughter. I thought it was a good opportunity to try doing the C2C. I love it! I think more C2C’s will be in my future.
I haven't yet worked out a border, but I think something simple?
I was going to finish the doilies from last week, but another friend was telling me about the antics of her cat, Julie had been in the habit of leaving a jug of water on the bench as water straight from the tap was too icy to drink. She went into the kitchen one morning to find her Kitty drinking from it, lol. Needless to say she now covers it. She has been looking for one of those old fashioned milk jug covers but hasn’t been able to find one for love of money. Then, we looked at each other, and thought doilies. So, I have been searching out covers. I found one on Crochet Memories, and it is lovely and quick to make up.

However it is too small for the job in hand, so I have spent a lot of time this week designing my version of a jug cover. Most doilies tend to have really open centres which is not a good thing as we don’t need flies etc crawling in!!
I am pleased with it, but when I do another one there will be some modifications. But I know Julie will be over the moon with this one.
I will write up and it do a chart for this jug cover and post it for anyone who would like to try it.
