Look, stuff has happened!

I'm quite proud of myself that I'm actually having stuff to show at the moment, on a weekly basis you can see the difference, well, I can, but I'm not counting on the fact that you can. Either way, don't get used to it. However, I digress, and so early in the post. Here is the main body of the first baby blanket completed, I now just need to do a border on it, and decide what I want to do with that, I was thinking just a basic triple stitch (double for the US), but I can't decide whether I should do something else as well, I'm just not sure what. 

Secondly the wedding sampler continues, I know, it still doesn't look like much, but I am loving being back to my stitching, I've added a whole second colour now, and hopefully am on track, ideally I'm looking for it being finished by the end June, I think it's possible.

And finally I do have other news, I got engaged at the weekend. See how good I was, see how I posted about the crochet and stitching, the things that are meant to be about first before going all giddy about it! I am quite giddy I must admit. I tend not to post about my personal life on here, but I couldn't resist sharing that one.

CONGRATULATIONS! I think you would have been forgiven for posting the personal news first - that is SO exciting!

The blanket looks terrific - those are lovely colours in that yarn. Can't help you with the border though, crochet is not my thing at all. And nice progress on the wedding sampler.
