FNSI Results…..

DSCF7848

Friday night saw me crocheting the borders around this baby blanket, I decided to do three rows with the soft chocolate and then a shell border in the medium blue. I love this blanket, the colours go really well together…..may just need to make a bigger version for myself I think.

Here’s a close up of one of the corners, love, love, love these colours together!

I also couldn’t resist starting another circle blanket using a rose pink and soft pink combination, I’m thinking of using the soft chocolate brown ( from the border of the blanket above ) for the borders of these circles…….combined they make me think of a Cherry Ripe chocolate bar…..LOL Time will tell if my imagination will live up to reality!

Don’t forget to pop over to Wendy's blog and check out all the other girls who joined in for a night of sewing with friends from around the world. Also a big thank you to Wendy also for hosting this each month!

Blue & brown always looks good together, and you've put some white in there too. Lovely! Now methinks that a bit of chocolate with those pinks would really make them into a cherry ripe LOL. Yummy choice of colours there too.

What a lovely blanket. I have never seen one done with granny square circles. It looks great. The pink one will look good too. The chocolate brown will be perfect.
