Clanger, Brain Slug and Cupcake

I've been very busy this week!

I've made a clanger for my friends little girl, it's current;y naked!! :O How rudddddddddddeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Am gonna get some felt tomorrow. Think i'll make mother clanger.

Also, finally finished the Adult Brain Slug Hat! Took about 3 weeks (along side other projects). I buggered it up at first and made it way too big! :( Teach me to not follow patterns...

And the cupcake hat. Requested by my friend Mel, then mum saw it so making another one now :) It's dead quick and easy, the bobbles are the most challenging thing and they're easy.

Must learn to stay focussed.....

This is gonna be a patch blanket made using 255 patches (yep, I am mental).

I like making blankets with patches cause I can just make patches whenever really, and don't have to focus entirely on one project all the time - which I hate to do, hence about a million patch blankets on the go :)

I am hoping to make the blanket look like this screenshot of the Space invaders game (but Green not white) using the Space Invaders Charts I have designed.

I have no idea when I will complete this blanket, since I started the 8-bit blanket and the other patch blankets years ago :s
