The End of the Ends is Nigh...

I was at craft night at a friend's last night. Homemade cheesecake & brownies, yum!

You can see my granny blanket bottom left, I've been diligently sewing in the ends for a while now. I keep the blanket rolled up as I'm working on it and hadn't checked my overall progress for a while, till today...

...and I'm almost done! Just a few more squares (see top left), should have them finished very soon.

Four legged blanket monster. Notice the finger poking through, and the wellies.

I like this effect, there'll be more photos like this when it's properly finished I'm sure!


A couple of peeks at the front.

There it is on the washing line. Next I need to decide what kind of border to finish with...

But look, our grass is now green, hurrah! We've still not had any warm weather as such, but we've had lots of sunny spells and it's not too bad once you're out the wind.

Sunny (but not warm!) weather is forecast again for tomorrow, hmmm, where'll I go on my bike this week...

You are nearly there!! It's so gratifying when the end is in sight after a big project. Will you tell us how big it is when it's complete? I want to make a blanket for my bed and need to make sure it's properly big enough to generously cover a double or kingsize bed. Yes, I realise that will be a year long project...

Enjoy your weekend. x

Beautiful blanket - it will become a family heirloom for sure.
I can't keep my eyes off our grass - I keep marvelling at the wonderful shade of green and how lush it is looking.

Stunning blanket! Not sure I'd be that patient...
No bike ride for me this weekend I think, too many commitments :-( It means parttime dog gets to go out a bit more often!

Your blanket is gorgeous. I love the colours. It is always such a thrill when you can see the end in sight. Always gives me a second wind :-)

It's very beautiful, I really do love the colours, it reminds me of one my gran had that was on the bed I slept in when we stayed at hers (with a matching one on my sister's bed). All that hard work is paying off :) Beth/thelinencat
