July is gone and August on it's way... this year is just slipping away!
The Nature's Journey SAL that I participating in is finally starting to come together. There was some umming and arhhhing over the colour I was going to use for the borders. In the end I followed my heart and used the orange (purple was a close contender).
Here is the centre block before I sewed all the extras on.
Here it is with the borders sewn on. The diamonds are just sat there to see what it looked like, and as I am happy with how it looks I now have to fold them under and sew on.
Yes indeed I am very happy with it now. I think I am going to like this quilt when it is finished!! And speaking of finished I have finished the cream crocheted blanket I showed the beginning of in the last post. I now have 3 items for OPAM JULY!!!
Very happy with how this came up - now to post it off to my newest great nephew who is just 1 month old and will get plenty of use with it as he lives in Canberra!!
And my other 2 OPAM JULY finishes are the Ripple blanket and the Rainbow Granny Squares blanket (yes I know I have shown you these in the last post also.... I am very happy with my crochet efforts this year so am doing a little bragging!!).
We had more rain during the night - that makes a total of 525mm in 6 weeks - plenty for now - a couple of weeks without rain would be nice - I think I have said that before also. This is the coldest and wettest winter we have had for many years - thus nothing is happening outside and why I have completed 3 blankets during July!!
