crochet is my thing right now

I recently bought this book on the internet. I have bought a few books at Tanum's web store and I gotta say: wow, the service is great!
I found this book to have quite simplistic patterns, but I still like it and find it a great inspiration .
In my stash of "stuff" I have some old fabric that I'd like to use for crocheting once I have taken the job of turning it all into strips. Who knows when I'll find the time for that...
Maybe this summer?
I'm on a roll as far as crocheting goes these days. Working on my granny square cotton blanket. Finished the pillowcase to go with it and at night I make a square every now and then while watching TV.
I have done some knitting too, some pink baby slippers that are now in the washing machine for felting. My cousin had twin girls recently and the slippers are a gift. I'll post a picture once I have finished them..

These little crocheted coasters I made years and years ago. I found them in a drawer the other day. As you can see they are stained, so I put them in the washing machine, but unfortunately they seem to be permanently stained. I'll keep them and make a few similar ones, they shouldn't be too difficult to copy even though I don't have the pattern anymore.
