Hearts and Squares

Its a long time since I've taken part in WIP Wednesday but I'm hoping to get more chance to keep this updated now I've got a new computer (my old one blew up round last September) and I've missed seeing what everyone's getting up to. I've been working on a few things lately and not finishing all that much really so have an awful lot of WIP to get done.
 
The main thing in my little basket of projects I am trying to complete in the next few days is a baby blanket for my husbands cousin who is due any day now.

 
I've been working on this for a fair few weeks now between other things and have finally finished all the squares I need.


 I've been having a play at the layout and am happy with this so am going to start joining them all together this evening and putting a boarder on and it will be all done by the end of this week. The only thing I'm not too fond of is the pink has ended up being a very close shade to the red so looks like I have extra squares of that rather than the two different colours it really is but unfortunately I don't have time now to order in another colour to replace it.

 
Following on with the heart theme this week I've also been making little crochet hearts with the idea to add lavender between the layers and make some little scented pockets. They've turned out quite pretty and I finally have something to use up this yarn.
