The End Is Nigh

I'm going to a craft night this evening and I'll be taking along The Blanket.

I've finished with the hexagons and half-hexagons. Now I'm on to the border, hurrah!

It seems to make a good playmat though that is not what it will be used for.

Also today, a little trip to the charity shop:- eight books (including two arty crafty books - my favourite kind!), four sparkly red candles (for Christmas) and one aeroplane (now in bed with N after being played with for most of the day), all for a total of £2.

Tata!

What an amount of work in that fantastic blanket - WOW! Not to mention the patience. Bargains galore at the charity shop - I love ethical consumerism!

I adore that blanket of yours, it's like a kaleidoscope.

And that book 'Fun With Art', I have a very very old copy (1970)of it from my childhood. I think i tried most of the ideas in it -including the bleach drawing- can you imagine that being in a children's book today?

Your blanket is stupendously fab and I can't wait to see it with the border on. I'm going to need some help once I start those hexies as I have no clue about half hexies. Great finds. I really should trawl through the many ones we have. x
