Nearly finished

I have deliberately kept the June blanket a little quiet. However, I'm pleased to say that it is almost finished. I'll be away at the weekend for a family girlie birthday celebration, but all being well June WILL be finished this month At the moment it's looking very bright and cheery, which is exactly as…

Five Colour Friday 

Five colour Friday is here again, and I think that I have found my most favourite red!  These colours go so well together – and would make a beautiful blanket. Simply using a simple repeated block would be stunning But don’t forget that you can make 120 different colour combinations using just these five colours….

Introducing June

But just a glimpse I’m not impressed with the camera coluthough! That outer circle is GREEN! It looks grey to me But… after adding another round … postaday, summer, July, 2017, photography, On we go … I wonder what will be next? It’s Ravelry page is here Save

Happy dance 

Yes, it’s done! May is officially over! The above was taken just before finishing to take advantage of the light. A very simple border completes it. Now it’s on to June! Save

Nearly there!

I’m so pleased to be able to say that the Spirit of May is almost done! All blocks are finished – and LOOK! It’s a bad photo – taken late last evening – not just finished BUT JOINED! Now it’s waiting for a simple border. (and a few ends, too). It won’t take long now…

This is fun

It’s surprising what a random choice of colours will produce. The Spirit blankets are all based around the daily temperatures of each month, and in previous months their position has been determined by Theo ‘appearance’. This month I’ve chosen a different way to work. I won’t give you too many details at the moment, but…

I did it!

Yes, April was finished last Thursday evening. Phew! Now I can get on with May, which is a little more colourful.  I have a few things on the back burner which I’ll share with you over the next weeks but one thing is for certain – I won’t be starting July until June is finished…

Five Colour Friday 

I have really enjoyed using these colours. It’s been secretly in progress during the trials and tribulations of the Spirit of April. No view of the finished blanket for a while, though, as it’s intended as a gift. The colours used are Stylecraft colours. Don’t forget that you can make 120 different squares with just…

So near yet …

I am determined to finish the squares for the Spirit of April before July! So many hold ups have almost made me want to hide it all in a bag under the  bed!! However, I’ve kept going. I was totally back on track until last might …. The colours of these squares are very close…

Flaming June!

To say that it’s been ‘warm’ here is a bit of an understatement! According to the thermometer the garden temperature is currently 30 deg C. The days have been sunny and warm – each day fielding glorious blue skies and no rain in evidence at all. If the heat continues we will probably be under…

Five Colour Friday 

Parchment, Raspberry, Storm Blue, Sage and Apricot are the colours for this week. This is a very pretty combination Save
