My Creative Space


I cannot believe it - My Rainbow Crochet Blanket is finished.  
Just in time too - as it's being used today to keep little Minnie warm while he is home feeling *ugg* on the lounge.  


He didn't want to be in any photos, which is a sure sign he really is quite *ugg*, so I asked if I could borrow it for a few quick photos to share.  


I just love it, I just love that I finished it and it's being used right now to snuggle my darling boy.  I love that I can share this with you.  I love that he loves the colours, I love that I have enough yarn left over to do a cushion cover, I love that this room in our house is going to be a rainbow room through all of winter, I love that I am about to curl up with my boy under this very blanket while he gets better and I make notes for my next assignment and prep playgroup craft sessions.  I love that my Grandma, my Nanna, and my Mum took the time to pass on their love of craft to me.  

 To my Mum, my Grandma and my Nanna - thank you.  xx

'Joyce' said...

oh much thank you's to you. I really am so happy with this little project. Thank you for the well wishes for my little fellow. He is back to school today and although a bit sniffly, he is feeling much better. I am sure it was part due to the healing of the Mumma love hooked into the Rainbow blanket for sure. Amy, oh you must check out 'Meet me at Mikes' for crochet learning - it's awesome and that's how I picked it up again after many years. Spectacular Fairy Wren, wow, you are good, very close, its Coffs Harbour, just up the road from Sawtell. Gillian, I love hearing from others their love of craft being handed down, it's such a wonderful gift to be given and to pass on. Monet Paisley - I have missed you so. How wonderful to see you back, I look forward to catching up with you again soon. Have a wonderful weekend at your place. xx
