Hope you are all well. Bella Bee is on Half Term this week and it's lovely to have her at home, but it's sometimes a bit tricky to keep her entertained. Luckily her gymnastics and swimming classes are still on this week. So I'm fitting in this post while she's at gymnastics. Plus her Dad is off work this week and took her to the cinema this morning to watch the new Tintin film and scoff lots of sweets. Hopefully the gymnastics will work off all the sugar!
So, this week is the turn of the Summer Garden Granny Blanket. I've got a fair few projects on the go at the moment that need finishing for birthday gifts. One is already grossly over due and another extremely imminent. So, as a consequence, the blanket didn't see much attention until the last couple of days. I cracked on and managed to get back up to date with it, minus some sewing of ends in - bleugh. I've now also joined them into blocks of 6. From now on I will be producing one of these completed blocks a week.
They have the same colour combinations in each, as this is the maximum number with the three colours I'm now using for the flowers, and each block is set out in same pattern ensuring even distribution when they are all eventually joined together.
It's good to see them in the completed blocks. It makes it feel more on the way to becoming a blanket and will give a better idea of how far along I am when laid out. I even braved a laying out upon the bed it will eventually be used for, but very quickly took them back off again before my brain could do too much calculation. Yes, this is definitely a long term project!
