C'est Fini !!!!!

Hello, how are you today? I hope that you have had a good week.

I managed to finish the blanket!!!! Yeah!!!! It wasn't too bad really perhaps because it is quite small. Ok, so I did start to get a little bit frustrated about 3/4 of the way through but I persevered. I was determined to complete it instead of putting it down and forgetting about it.

It made my admiration for the many people out there who make many blankets grow even stronger. I do so love a crochet blanket but do not love the amount of time that they take to make.

Anyhoo, here it is, I still would like to add a couple of doilies but I am just so glad that the blanket part is done....








I now need to wash it and hope that it will soften up a wee bit. Then I will add the doilies.

I hope you have a good weekend, see you soon.

  7. Beautiful, not sure you need to add a thing to it. Such an interesting combination of colors, how did you put it together? Did you stitch it together (sew) or did you crochet it together?

  10. Well done to persevere to the end..and it was worth it because it's gorgeous! I've given up making a blanket..I'm bored with sewing all the squares together,so it's going to be a cushion instead!
