Finally finished making up the rest of the squares for this blanket, now to sew them on row by row and then comes the decision on how to finish it off with the edging.

Shez and I exchanged our one on one swap items and this months theme was a mini wall hanging and I added a few little extras to her parcel as well, I think she was happy with what I’d made/given to her just like I loved what she made/gave me.
