It occured to me over the weekend that I haven't acutally posted about my Summer Garden Blanket which was what started me on this whole blogland thing. I apologise to those of you who have seen the pictures on Flickr, but felt we all needed a burst of colour on a drab Monday morning!!!!!
In the middle of the summer I decided to make a blanket like Lucy's , and once I found a supply of reasonably priced wool I embarked on a colourful journey, I was absorbed straight away and found it easy to 'run off' a couple of squares in any spare moment that I had. When I went camping in the late summer it was blissful sitting outside crocheting and playing around with the finished squares to find the colour combination which worked for me, laying them out on the bed of our trailer.
I decided to add a single colour 'frame' to all of the squares and make a border with the same colour, I have discovered I like to frame things! I finished off the edging with couple of rows of clashing purples!!!
I then uploaded a picture of the finished blanket onto Flickr and had a great response, it was then that I decided to try my hand at blogging as it felt really good to chat to others with the same interests and crafty hobbies! It is such an interesting hobby to have and I am enjoying it immensely.
A quick update on the icing roses, I had another go last night and
They look a lot more rose-like don't you think? I am feeling a lot happier about it now!
Hope you all have a great day, speak soon xx
