FNSI and I’ve been busy while away…….

Tonight is Friday Night Sew In with Wendy there’s still time to sign up if you want to join in the fun, this blanket is what I’ll be working on, I’ll be adding the edging to finish it of and then it will go into the gift basket to be pulled out when needed.

I also finished working the edging for this baby blanket and it’s now in the gift basket but you know what those little squares seem to be multiplying and I seem to have enough to make at least two more of these blankets so I better get a wriggle on and get them done! I’m thinking I might add a coloured border to the next two instead of the cream like this one…..

I’ll also be starting on another little baby blanket but this one I’ll just have to tease you with a glimpse of the colours I’ll be using as the mum to be wants the pattern to be a complete surprise so no progress pictures for this project until I hand it to mum in November….I’d better get a wriggle on November will be here before we know it and then dare I say it…….CHRISTMAS!!!

Anyway, I’m feeling much better now I just need to take it slowly for the next few weeks which will be easy when I have such lovely projects to keep me occupied.
