I have been adding squares to my flower blanket gradually.
It is making slow progress but it is growing at least! I said in a previous post that I never join as I go but for the first time I felt like I wanted to with this blanket! Actually, I am enjoying doing it like this. I make a row of six squares and then join them all.
There are sooo many ends to sew in! I am going to have to keep doing them as I go as well otherwise I will be overwhelmed at the end!
Another thing has been distracting me slightly the last week. I have had the idea floating in my head for a while, but I put it into action a few days ago! I'm sure those of you with school age children will know how many children have little tags or keyrings on their book bags or PE kits so they know at a glance which bag is theirs.
So I decided to make some myself! They fasten with velcro and work very well! I also made a little red monster (that I didn't take a picture of) that Little Budgie took for his bookbag and Mini Budgie has claimed the bird for his bookbag for when he starts school!
I had a lot of fun making them and I think they are very cute, especially the bird! I am working on a different one now and I have lots of idea spinning around my head! If only I could crochet and create all day!
