These hexagon’s were worked on while I was travelling around Tasmania in April……..

It was soooo good to finally be bale to hand over Sharon's blanket to her on Saturday and by the look on her face I think she was a bit stunned by the size of it but I wanted it to be big enough so she could snuggle under it on the couch.

When  I finished making Sharon's blanket I had leftover hexie’s so I decided to make  a smaller blanket for Sharon's daughter “Miss Lily” so she could also snuggle under one just like her mum’s but I forgot to take a photo of it by itself so here is a group shot of the blankets. Sharon's blanket is the bottom one then Miss Lily’s in the middle and then with the extra,extra leftovers I made a small round baby blanket to put into my gift basket.

Sharon has posted on her face book page photo’s off Miss Lily with her blanket but since I haven’t asked permission to have Miss Lily’s photo on my blog I wont be able to show you these but I do know she loved it so that makes me very happy Smile
