That Blanket

After a long time, I've finally done what I can with those squares that were knitted by various people, including children, for a charity blanket. It's been a challenge to say the least - all different sizes/tensions/definitions of "square". There were 100 of them in the end and I've crocheted round each one, sewn in all the ends, and produced 1 of 2 blankets.

Can't say as it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, but I've done what I can with what I was given. I sewed them all together first making a flat seam and then I've oversewn along the front of the seams to try to tidy it up a bit more.
Oh well, one blanket down, one to go!
This is it in its unpressed state - somebody else is going to take responsibility for that!

My youngest niece had a birthday recently and whilst she was at my house, she played around with some wool and designed a little pouch she'd like made (she was hoping for an i-Phone, but it didn't happen - she just got a pouch, lol). Happy to oblige, I faffed and made her this - it's about 11cm x 8 cm if I remember rightly. I filled it with little packets of seed beads she'd asked for (all wrapped individually) just for a bit of interest :0)

And that's me for a while - instructions from the osteopath to take time off from the computer etc are being followed - I'm off to lounge about under a tree in Portugal for a little while. Bye for now!
