As far as I'm going to go.

If you remember at the end of January I resurrected this partly finished blanket which was started back in 1012 read here I was determined to do something with it and after putting it together as best I can, I have decided  that this is as far as I can go with it.  

lap blanket granny squares cal pretty easy free pattern

I have managed to include all the original squares from the CAL apart from an oblong square which I plan to use as the center for another blanket and although it's smaller than I planned it is plenty big enough for someone to use as a lapghan.  I did start to make more squares but I think that I'll use those in another blanket somewhere down the line.

I'm so pleased with how it's turned out even though it looks nothing like it should do, some of you clever people can make different sized squares into a lovely blanket but not me I'm afraid.

I cheated by making all the squares the same size and then joined them around the inner rectangle. I'm glad that I can draw a line under this and send it on to someone who can make use of it I'm hoping that all the pretty squares will give someone some cheer and warmth.

Speaking of cheer and warmth I am so sick of the cold weather, we had snow and bitterly cold winds over the weekend, in an effort to feel more Spring like I have changed my header from the previous snow scene to this one of daffodils which are flowering their pretty socks off in my garden at the moment even the snow hasn't deterred them.

Have a great week.😊

New Things x 2

As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make it, there was no putting it on the to do list either, I even bought yarn for it.....

Aren't those colours gorgeous it gave me a huge amount of pleasure opening the door to the postman and  having him hand me the parcel and then opening it to reveal all this yarny goodness, well it has been a long time I can't remember how long it is since I bought any new yarn.

I'm talking about the Arizona CAL of course is anyone else following it?

Here's my progress so far..

That's part one complete just in time to start part two which came out yesterday.

The second new thing is something extra special my first grandchild Mikey was born on the 8th March.😊

Have a great weekend.
