If you have been following me for a while, you'll probably remember the knitted squares I bought in a charity shop, oh, probably 18 months or so ago. This was their first blog appearance. For a long time I had no idea what to do with them, but in the end I decided on making them into a lankie. And decorate the blanket with crochet flowers. That was way back in October last year, and this was how it began. I did work on it over the next few weeks and a bit of progress was made in November. Late November/December and a visit to the cottage in France saw it almost finished. But then it kind of came to a halt. And it was only very recently that I picked it up again. It was the lovely sunshine and warm breeze which made me want to sit in the garden and finish projects.
Now, in case you didn't visit the old posts ( very time consuming, I know ), here are photos of the whole year long process -
The plan -
Further plans -
In the end I decided against flowers in every square , it was too much.
Almost finished -
And finally, the ta-daa moment -
It is cosy and snuggly, not that I need cosy and snuggly right now, lol, the weather being so lovely at the moment. Still, cool evenings and all that, I had better be prepared, right?
Thats all for today, I am going to have a very busy afternoon crafting. Why oh why do I always leave everything til the last moment? Tomorrow is the big reveal of the RUSH projects for the Bloggerette Sorority
and although I started thinking about a project a while ago, and managed to gather a few supplies in the last couple of days, I haven't achieved anything yet! Wish me luck, or rather, inspiration and a steady hand, lol
