Daughter No. 1 and I went to an Easter Chocolate Buffet, and ate soooooooooo much chocolate. There was even a huge chocolate fountain, with every single permutation of chocolate you could imagine. It was fantastic!!
But to crochet news, I finished the granny stripe blanket I have been working on for some time.
This blanket I believe has taught me the meaning of patience. And I have really really enjoyed the ride!
As each stitch along each row bought me such a small incremental way towards the end, I got such a sense of pleasure from the slow progress that was occurring. I also really felt the concept of something being made with love.
Anyhoo, enough chat, here it is in its new home, looking quite happy with itself.
And how handsome does it look now??
This blanket began as a cushion cover
But then I fell in love with it...................and to be honest, I had totally misjudged when measuring the sides of the cushion it was to be for!!!!!!!!!!!
Here it is, popping out to the back verandah for a bit of sun.
And here it is, having a rest on the exercise bike where lots of it was made. (until it became too weildly to continue making on there).
Daughter No.1 was looking at it one day, and said "It looks kind of Jamaican", so obviously it was a short skip and jump from there to become my "Cool Runnings" Blanket.
Hope everyone is enjoying the extra days off
