Hello my lovelies!
I can't believe its Tuesday already! Well, actually I can, its been such a busy week and now instead of presenting you with my big Ta-dah, which was the plan, I am once again giving a little update as my "blanket" (insert cheeky smiley face) and myself did not really have much time for each other this week.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments last week. I honestly did not think that many of you thought I was making a blanket! I have to admit though that I can see why you did. My daughter was quite horrified with the fact that it is not a blanket after all as she also thought it was a lovely blanket but she is not so sure about one wearing it! Ewww mum!
This project, much like my life this year has not always gone as planned. First, I could not get the wool I wanted, then the colours were not working the way I wanted. Of course when I got to the joining stage I realised this "blanket" was not as long as I thought it was going to be! This was the first thing that really irked me! I was hoping it would reach down below my knees and I probably should have made an extra row of squares. But then I realised that the picture in my book has in fact cut off the bottom of the models legs so I have made it right anyway. I have to admit to wondering whether it would pull down once the rows at the bottom were added. It did not!!! Oh well. I made it myself and I shall wear it with pride! (or with a whole lot of love anyway! :-))
Have you guessed what it is yet? Im sure some of you are just thinking OMG she is NOT going to wear that is she? LOL But as I have often been likened to a tree with my choice of clothing colours, I most certainly am! Its not a jacket, or a poncho, but it is an item of clothing! And if it turns out half decent, I might just make another one in a longer style with less colours! :-)
Hopefully by next week I will have finished off all the edging and can take some pictures for you! For now, go on over to Gingerbread girls house and see what everyone else is up to!
Have a wonderful craft filled week. Take care!
Hugs and smoochies xoxoxox
