... and they are done....

I have finished Hubz's crochet blanket.....

the edges are wavy... I'm not a very good crocheter.....

and don't ask me what happened about what colours went where.... it looked in control when I started!!


... it's made of Pure Wool... quite heavy really ... but he is happy with it....


.. the real colours are just not showing in the picture... that chair is much more taupe/beige/brown that that....

.. and I have quilted and bound this 9 patch quilt....



an all over textured quilting 


... after a wash it will be a lovely soft cuddly quilt....


I joined in with Jane from Loopy's Place facebook group for this quilt.... she gave us tips and assistance all the way through via video links.... and of course there is the added bonus of sewing with others and making new cyber friends....


I have pulled out my banner to work on in the evenings....  


Righto, Gotto Go.... the day to enjoy.... hope you have a wonderful rest of the week....

love that blanket, and the randomness works, it's really special

Two lovely finishes. The blanket looks great and who notices the waviness when it's draped or snuggled under! And the nine patch is really splendid. xx

Great work on the crochet blanket. I think it looks wonderful. It will be lovely and warm.
And well done getting the quilt finished, too. I enjoy the simplicity of the design and its effectiveness. All those different 9 patches are wonderful.

Well done on the finish, the blanket looks wonderful, it will be so warm and snuggly. I am surprised you would need something like that living where you do, I assume its always warm!! 😁😁 the nine patch looks wonderful too, congratulations on another finish. Your stitchery is lovely.

Gosh Fiona - I love both the blanket AND the quilt. I love the colours in both of them. I am stitching that very same banner ... I have only done 2.5 blocks so far but really enjoying it.

Great job on Dave's rug....it will be so cosy. Your nine patch is beautiful and so wonderfully quilted too. Is that Fiona's pile getting smaller?
