H-e-l-l-o! Yes I felt the need to spell that out, a big welcome to you all! What a week. What a long and borrrrrrrrrrrrrring week! It's been one of those where on Wednesday you think tomorrow is Friday and the real Thursday and Friday end up being a real disappointment - "this should be the weekend in my mind!"
Well nevermind, it's Friday now which is fan-flipping-tastic. I wanted to quickly share with you my current project! I realised I haven't actually made any attempts to blog about it and I should have done because I'm loving it!
I've wanted to make a hexagon blanket for absolutely ages (infact while I was making the granny squares...) so I'm really happy that I've finally started.
These photos admittedly were taken several months ago. The projects been on & off while I made other things, but never far from my mind :-)
It took a while to decide how to join them all as I wanted the hexagons to be fully formed with a white border, not colourful circles with a white border making them into a hexagon shape... Erm, does that make sense? Perhaps not! It did mean I had to figure this out by trial and error. When I dc'd them together there was a kind of ridge between them; this would not do! I've decided a much simplier option is to sew them together :-)
So I made a start! Back when I was visiting my parents, I made use of their lovely grass.
I'm much much further along than this but I don't want to show you all at once you see or it will spoil the journey of making! Hope you like :-)
