Pottering along

Hello Folks!

I've been a bit awol of late.  Just the normal life thing, and I've realised I'm not picking up my camera enough, something which I will remedy.

Here are my snowdrops that I rescued from the back garden before a digger drove over them.  They're in a pot by the front door and even though they are a little past their best, they are making me smile when I come in from work.
I have enough squares in my temperature blanket so I've started to join them.  It's 16 squares wide and I'm joining them with a slip stitch join through the back loop, with white yarn which I don't mind the peeking through.  I've 2 white middles so far (snow) and some blue middles for rain.  Not a bit of drizzle, the sort of rain when you look out, say yuk and batten down the hatches.  I'm now thinking I should be adding yellow middles for a cheery sunshiny day, like today.  This means I shall have to amend my colours, I will have to think about it.

In theory I'm making a square a day, sewing in the ends and attaching it to the blanket, but in practise I record the temperature and then colour in when I have made the square, usually 5 or 6 at a time.  By colouring in when I make them I can keep better track of where I am.

The wedding present blanket is also coming along nicely, I'm up to about 200 squares so closer to my 300 ish target.  I'll lay them all out again to see how it's looking this weekend.

Well that's me for now, as it is sunny I think I might get outside and fill some of my green waste bins.

Have a super week ......................Clicky Needles.


  1. Those flowers are beautiful...and it is exciting to see the temperature blanket making progress!

  2. The temperature blanket is a fascinating idea - it will be so interesting to see how it progresses.

  3. I think your blanket is brilliant. Adding yellow would be very fun. Hugs and good luck.

  4. I am intrigued by your temperature blanket, must go and find more posts describing the project. I like the colours. Soon you'll see a shift in colours, how cool is that?


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
