What do you do with all your wool bits at the end of projects?? Well I have an ongoing project (actually one in each colour scheme).  I'm not much of a crochet 'er but can do the basics.  Every time I have a left over bit I see which blankly it would suit best and add to that one.  It is basically a Granny Square that doesn't stop. has some great Crochet tutorials and this Crochet_Granny_Square one is basically what I've been doing except I just carry on and on until the blankly is the perfect size for cuddling while reading a good book or watching a great movie.

I'm still limited to some hand sewing as I am unpacking boxes and finding homes for all the things that has to live with us in our new home. When I looked at this block my first thought for the eyes of the little dragonfly was a french knot and I'm pleased with how it turned out. feelingstitchy has a great tutorial on how to do this stitch if the diagram below doesn't help.
This diagram is from Wikipedia and it shows how the stitch is created.
I tried to keep the contrast from the previous blocks going with the red.
