You will be pleased to know that I'm in a better mood today, (or maybe you couldn't care less which is fine too). I finished a third section of the white that I'm working on and damp stretched it overnight. Whilst that was happening and in the absence of anything alse to clean I decided to add the latest two pieces to my throw. Just pinned for now, a little distraction from the angst of the white. This caused a kind of psychological drum roll.....these two pieces changed completely once they had been added to the larger section and I thought....the white will do that, join what you have so far, step back and look again. So it's done, three sections are joined, (of the white...keep up!!) and I will show you them next time. They do look different, to me they look better. The rest of the pieces are measured and await embellishment. Phew!!
Back to my throw, the top picture, look up. Doesn't it look like a proper blanket now? Not ready to use, well not if you don't want to wake up with pins sticking in your unmentionables, but definitely taking shape. see, happy, happy.
and this is the whole so far, on my floor, my CLEAN floor. As you can see it is not square, has ragged edges, has gaps, needs work. Good job it's for me or there would be another psychological meltdown going on! It will look completely different when it is finished, it will have knots and puffs and other things I haven't even thought of yet but here we have it as it is today.
Now for a proper drum roll please....my little girl won a massive award at work yesterday, nay not massive, humungous, huge, gargantuan. Think of the biggest thing you can and double it. So well done Helen, we are so proud and love you to the moon and back xxx
