Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, umm, yeah. Hi?

Ok, so life has been somewhat crazy (surgery, recovery, etc). I’m better now, but so far behind on my to-do list I’m running in circles. Clearly I need a better to-do list, with things such as ‘eat breakfast’ on it. Sigh. NExt week…nah, next week is also going to be insane.(Side note, I really really really miss my bike right now. How do people cope catching the bus everywhere???????????)

Anyway, enough about that. Whilst on recovery, I had a friend come stay with me. And so naturally that meant I had to make her a blanket (She had to ditch the old one I made her due to an extremely bad personal set of circumstances, so a replacement was doubly necessary). She liked the harmony blanket by attic24, but wanted different colours this time, so I sent her colour samples for all of the attic24 blankets, and she went with the coastal ones. Over recovery I made all the squares:

(Note that of course I’m not being sensible and darning in the ends as I go….)

And start joining them up with the yellow

It worked so much better than I was expecting 🙂 Here it is with 4 stripes joined

Unfortunately, it’s also a lot slower than I was expecting, so I had to cart it back to my place after recoery (I went to stay with the parents)

These are the colours I chose for the border

Unfortunately, it’s kinda fallen onto the back burner as I have a few urgent projects on the go which I can’t stop doing for the length of time it’ll take me to finish the blanket 😦

Must dash to the bus, back later with a cross stitch I did over recovery (after I finish-finish it!)

  1. The blanket looks very pretty, she will be happy!
    The colour combination really evokes coasts with sea and rocks

  2. Pretty colours.

  3. Hello. Sorry to hear you’ve been under the knife, but glad you’re mending well. Blanket’s looking good!
