I did however have a nice relaxing weekend where I didn't do to much. I basically hung out with family, went to the movies (Godzilla - it was awesome!) and cleaned. Really exciting stuff but I did get a new duvet cover for my bed and new sheets to compliment it. What was even better was that it was all on sale! Score!
|So in love with Pink and Orange right now|
So other than that blanket work has kept me entertained these past two weeks.
|Three Quarters of the blanket are done!|
So I have been super motivated to get this blanket done. I really love seeing these blocks come together. I did try and start to join them but the mattress stitch pulled the patterned stripes off and it hurt my brain. I have a few tricks up my sleeve though. I am going to try again but move a bit further into the block than my first test. If that doesn't work then they are getting whip stitched together.
|The last quadrant|
While I put the thoughts of joining in the corner to think about what its done, I started on the last section. I purposely made sure this was the last section because these are my favorite colors of the blanket. I knew when I started this thing that I was going to need a good motivator to get this last section done and so I put these colors last.
That combined with the Willow Square Blanket have really gotten me grooving on getting this project completed. I even have the ends weaved in on two of the 3 completed quadrants. Which is huge because there are a lot of ends. I try and finish some ends after I complete a row so everything is ready when I start to join and complete the border.
I am going to modify the border on this blanket. Since it's coming out smaller than I thought it would, I am going to make the border thicker to make the blanket larger. I am also using Navy as the border instead of black like the sample had.
All in all I can't wait for this blanket to be done to snuggle underneath.
That's it for this week.
