I have been working on some secret Christmas gifts. Crocheting blocks from the '200 crochet blocks' book by Jan Eaton. I'm making one cushion for a girl and one for a boy. Here is the progression of the front of my girl version, in pictures. :) I'm using 8 ply Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton and a 3.50 hook.
Now I'm working on the backs. :)
