Sunshine, flowers …

… Sea, sand and beach huts!

The First block for the Spirit of July blanket has all these elements!

It truly is a block for summer! Can’t wait to see the finished blanket!

One down – 11 to go 🙂

C’est finis!

Another month is over! August has begun!!

I'm a little behind with the Spirit of the Month blankets – but that's fine. I chose not to start July until the month was finished because I didn't want to be as frustrated with quantities as I was with the Spirit of April! So, now that I'm about to start July,  here is June!

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. Twelve squares and 22 colours.

The last colour to be added was Copper, so that's what I used for  joining.

What do you think?

It's the first one I've made with squares that match! Like the May blanket, it only has a very simple border. I'll post the colours another day.

July, here we come!

Nearly finished

I have deliberately kept the June blanket a little quiet. However, I'm pleased to say that it is almost finished. I'll be away at the weekend for a family girlie birthday celebration, but all being well June WILL be finished this month

At the moment it's looking very bright and cheery, which is exactly right as a reminder of a summer month. I'm not so sure July will demonstrate the same feeling! However, the month isn't over yet 😉

Five Colour Friday 

Five colour Friday is here again, and I think that I have found my most favourite red! 

These colours go so well together – and would make a beautiful blanket. Simply using a simple repeated block would be stunning

But don’t forget that you can make 120 different colour combinations using just these five colours. Details of this can be found here

As for this delicious yarn – it’s by Deramores

Burnt Orange, Fuchsia, Raspberry, Ruby and Wine

Worth going over to have a look especially as they often have very good offers, and always reward purchases.

But just a glimpse

I'm not impressed with the camera colour, though! That outer circle is GREEN! It looks grey to me

But… after adding another round …
