And see this beauty on my ugly desk, what a contrast huh! It's filled with 96 little squares in shades of blue that I've crocheted over the last few evenings..believe it or not, 3 balls of 50g soft cotton so far. I'm very surprised by how much yarn is used in these things. Anyway, these little squares - and yes, despite appearances of a roundy nature, they are squares - are destined to be joined into a long scarf for my sweet Mama's birthday. I know she will not read this or even see the pics, so it's OK to share with you. And I have to share because it's nearly an accomplished mission, and those are a bit few and far between this week. I'm expecting much better things of myself in the coming week, so watch do...I'll either show you progress or fall flat on my face. Place your bets!

Stars and erm, squares
Here's the card that caused all the stars to be cut out last week..I thought it would save some boredom at the workshop if they were pre-cut. I think it did...although the construction caused lots of gulps for a nano second. Then when you work out how straightforward it is, it truly is a five minute card. If you have someone to fiddle about and cut the mounts and the stars for you.
