No Flowery stuff lately, but some old stuff just for fun.

Hi All

I just wanted to drop by and drop you all a line.
How are you all doing??
I haven't been doing anything flowery lately so I haven't been posting here.
However, my own blog was four years old the other day and I've done a look back over the past four years post over there.

And seeing the old photos of all the blankets I've made (11 all together would you believe) and the three Japanese flower ones, I thought I'd share them again here too, if you don't mind.

This Rainbow one I made for my Granddaughter Libby.
It was the third one I made.

This one I made for myself and it hangs over the bottom of our bed.
In the photo it wasn't quite finished, I still had one row to join and I also put an edging on this one.
But it's the only photo I could find that gives an idea of the whole blanket.

And this was the first one I made which lives on our sofa bed.

Hopefully I will be making some new flowery stuff in the near future to share with you all.

Happy hooking all and thanks for all your lovely posts and inspiration!!!!

Chris Xx

  6. They are all so lovely!!
    I especially like the rainbow blanket!!
    OK - I have a question here - is it me or what!!
    When I scrolled down - your rainbow blanket looked like it was getting larger!!
    What is it called when there is a visual trick to the eyes???
    Anyway- try it-- scroll up and down on your rainbow blanket!! It appears to move and to grow!!
    Water-- I'm drinking only water :-}}
