Blanket Update

Hello All!

I've been spending lots of time on the Wedding Blanket, I've got over 100 circles now.  I got them all out the other day to see how the colours are working.
The yellow and the two new pinks have really jazzed it up.  Even though I'm a pinky/purply/blue sort of girl, I'm loving the really bright colour combinations.
 I have end sewing-in sessions every few days.  I'm enjoying this as well, because I'm making mini pom-poms with the ends, no matter how small.
 The exciting new I told you about the other week is an extension on the back of our house.  The kitchen and living room will both increase in size and the old dining room will become my craft room.  Yippee!  

We cleared the garden as much as we could, I've saved all the precious plants, 
and the builder started digging.  Any grass that was visible soon disappeared.
The dog wasn't too happy about the 'muck' removal lorry ~ a massive grab truck and let us all know it was there by constantly barking.
 Trenches complete, three lorry loads of concrete were pumped over our wall.

 The dog and I went out to check the next morning it had set.  Looking good.
I will update you from time to time and try my very best not be become an extension bore.

That's me for now, I'm baking brownies for the builder.    

Have a great week..............Clicky Needles.


  1. That sounds like a major undertaking, although a dedicated craft room at the end of it might justify the upheaval!

  2. Wow, that is quite a exciting! I will look forward to watching the progress.

    Your circles are coming along nicely!

  3. Your crochet is looking lovely and the new colours do make the circles zing. I don't envy you the upheaval of the building work, I remember what it was like when we got ours done, but it will all be worth it in the end.

  4. Best of luck on the renovation. You will be so happy when it is all done and looking wonderful.

  5. That blanket it's going to look amazing!!

  6. That blanket is going to look amazing when its finished - as will your extension.

    I might get in touch when your extension's finished as we're thinking of having one ourselves and are on the look-out for builder with good references.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
