Easter Holiday Hooky!!
Phase 2 of the blanket has begun!. I finally got the last of the 30 squares completed yesterday while watching rugby on the telly!. then last night i got inspried to make something else that i had seen on one of the blogs i follow!. i made a ripple dishcloth, and i love it!. it took about 2hrs last night, and then this morning i decided to stitch the edges to seal in the ends and tidy the piece off!. i think some more of these are on the horizon!. today i have begun the joining of the squares for the blanket. i laid out and played with options for the pattern and then piled each set of 5 together. i found a joining tutorial i liked and set off!. it takes me about 1/2hr to join the 5 squares, and so far i've done 3 rows....i kept getting distracted!. i've also been busy in the kitchen cooking up two batches of food for the freezer....i need to run down the meat in the freezer in prep for leaving this place!. when i have finished the blanket i'll do a post with the links to the patterns i followed. and now for the piccies.... the piles of squares waiting to be joined Lucy's instructions for the ripple
