A cake at long last! This one is for Mr Stressy's bosses wife and is a present from Mr Stressy. Hmm. So how come it was me staying up so late? Anyway, she loves horses so I had a go at doing a little girl on her pony jumping over a wall.
Hmm. Again. How come it looks more like the pony is flying? Anyway, never mind, it was better than nothing (and judging by the hours Mr Stressy is putting in at work lately, nothing is what he would rather have given her).
Postie was very kind and brought me more squares - this pretty little lot from Natalie who owns (I am soooo jealous) this shop. One day I will go to Putney and call in to say hello. And no doubt spend a little money. I shall not tell Mr Stressy I have gone, I shall just say I'm off to Sainsburys or something. (it would take over 3 hours for me to get there, 6 hours in the shop and 3 hours back - do you think he would miss me?)
I laid out all of the squares last night and started sewing them together. I feel that 10 x 10 squares is big enough - and guess what, I still have 20 squares left over, which means that I'll be making another blanket! So if you haven't yet been bitten by the bug of 4" squares and would like to make some, please feel free - I shall be collecting for quite some time yet!
Oh and look here what's finished! Blanket number 1 in all its glory. Hope you like it!
And don't be fooled by the sunshine in this picture. It's freezing.
