As promised, here is a photo of the key ring I made dear hubby. Remember you can click on the pictures to make bigger.
The little heart charm on top says 'made with love.' On the ring itself is a Love square charm, the big charm says 'keep calm and carry on' and on the reverse is a crown, and the little charm says hope.

So I can make pillowcases with crochet edgings to match the duvet, from You Go Girl's blog. She calls for Dove's but I couldn't resist these little goodies. I am still on Jenny Craig so I only had one to begin my adventure. Surprising that I didn't eat the whole box as I had a heck of a time with cutting out the pillows. I had one set cut out and used it as a template for the other pillows. I folded it in half, yeah can you see what is coming? I ended up cutting the template material along the fold and didn't pay attention and cut the fold off the top material. So I had two pieces for the top. Now I can sew them together but instead I will make smaller throw pillows.
Here is a close up of the material:
Today I went to Hillsborough Yarn shop and met Beth and we headed to lunch at Gulf Rim. It was okay, nothing to write home about. I bought some yarn I decided to use with the pillows instead of the ones shown above. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of them yet.
