Crochet completion!

He llo isn't it chilly this week, but so lovely to see the sun and have some decent light to take photographs in.

Anyway work continues on our Dream bedroom and that I can report is looking fantastic! However it is a little s..l..o..w. Am beginning to lose track of where exactly I keep my knickers now and don't ask where my trousers are I've no idea, also the iron............gone!  I need to get back into my own bedroom very soon.
