Gypsy Caravan Blanket

Hello!
Well I've finally finished my gypsy caravan blanket.
I'm really pleased with it, it is now gracing the back of my sofa in all its colourful glory.
So would you like to see...
Yay!
I love the colours so bright and cheery.
Don't you just love the feeling when you finally finish a big project? phew!
I will miss it too! it's been a great stash buster.
All neatly folded and ready to take inside. Do you remember the gypsy caravan cushion? The blanket and cushion look great together.
 
Here are a few photos from the garden this week...
You may have noticed I snuck in two kitty pictures too.
 
With the weather being so lovely it's been nice to have a family stroll of an evening.
My daughter and I taking in the evening air.
 
The last thing I have to tell you this week is I've had my first crochet commission for mandalas! I was so excited and the lady I sold to is an ideal first costumer very supportive, she has some great ideas too!
 
Wishing you a lovely week.
xx
 
P.S I now have a facebook page too. Please pop in and like me if you have chance.

  3. Hi! What a lovely colourful blanket! A great achievement!!
    Good luck with your commission!
    I wonder what you will make next?

    PS: Just saw your 'Portmeirion' tag - I used to work for the company (in Stoke) until 2 years ago when I moved to Belgium... small world, eh?

    Best wishes,

    1. Hello Ingrid.
      Thank you for visiting me. It really is a small world.
      I really like Portmeirion it's one of my favourite places. I don't have any of the pottery but I like the floral designs.
