These hexagon’s were worked on while I was travelling around Tasmania in April……..
I started stitching Sharon's blanket while travelling in the car around Tasmania….
I also started growing the rows as we stayed at various places while in Tassie….
Until it was big enough to cover a queen sized bed…..Love, LoVe, Love how this blanket came together and all the colours with it’s little pop of red and orange…..
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
