A lovely finish....


I'm very pleased with this crochet blanket....


I bought the kit in the UK three years ago.  It is called Hydrangea and the pattern is designed by Attic24.   


Lovely easy repeat and has made it a lovely weight and texture.... 


It has now gone to live with local DD …. 

A fair amount of left over yarn which will keep for a scrappy blanket one day....


My white (which is not white) African Violet has opened.  It's very pretty with the violet and white edges and yellow centres….

I think that is all the colours I have now.... 



Righto, Gotto Go.... I have some gorgeous quilts visiting me for a bit of quilting attention....

Have a lovely week.....xx
