Blanket Inspired By Nature

Hello, hello.
Here I am fastening off my third blanket.
Here it is finished. Hooray!
It was a lovely project and took no time at all.

I enjoyed using the bright cheery colours.

It's like one HUGE granny square!

All folded up neatly.

It's not a large blanket but it's big enough for shoulders or a lap.
I really did feel inspired by my mum's lovely posy of flowers from her garden.
I have found using nature for colour schemes very useful.
Thank you Joy for opening my eyes to it.
Hope you're all having a lovely week?
Thank you to all the lovely people who commented on my last post.


  1. Gorgeous gorgeous blanket FB - you are a clever girl and I LOVE the colours you've chosen! The pink edge is just right, I think - so neat, and really sets the blanket off well!
    Your Mum's flowers are so sweet - can't beat fresh flowers in the home, especially when they're a gift from a thoughtful loved one!

  12. I think I need some granny square advice from an expert - how do you get you square to stay flat? Mine keep rising up in the middle. I can't block it as its acrylic wool

    1. When I first started granny squares mine did that! I found that when I got my tension sorted they worked out a bit better. I tend to just use trail and error. Thank you for calling me an expert it made me giggle! Hope that made sense x
