It's taken a while but I have eventually finished my Granny Stripe blanket from Attic 24 

I bought the wool pack from Yarndale 2014 and started it in the October, so it has been a long project. I wanted it for my bed so it was rather large. I love it now it's done and I've bought the Cozy Stripe wool pack so that is next for the hook!
I haven't done any sewing at all this year yet.
I'll have to remedy that but I'm having trouble deciding on my next project. 

I think I'm going to finish a Valentine quilt while I decide what to do. I've had it on the go for umpteen years, so it's about time I finished it. As far as I can remember it just needs backing and quilting, but I could be wrong! I'll go and dig it out tomorrow and see what needs doing.

Happy Stitching

  1. I bet it looks lovely on your bed and will keep you nice and cosy on these cold winter nights. I'm keeping a notebook to write all my projects in this year in a hope that I will start and finish more things as well as finish off some unfinished projects. Your Valentine's quilt sounds like a good project to kick start your sewing for 2016 and will give you a real sense of achievement once it's finished.

  2. Congratulations Melanie, that's a gorgeous blanket!

  3. It is certainly a beautiful throw, love the stunning array of colour.
