Work in Progress


Hello; how nice of you to visit! It has been a crazy couple of days for me. This weekend I was featured on the Facebook page of Garnstudio Drops Design . Of course that meant a lot to me, and the response was immense! So I’ve been at my computer a lot of time.

In between I’ve been working on my hexagons.

The pile keeps growing, and by now I’m sure it is going to be another blanket.

Every hexagon starts with a 3-round circle, and all of these hexies are different. And I haven’t even made circles with pink and purple shades yet.

I’ve also tried to make a little keychain in a heart shape, but I’m not yet satisfied. The heart doesn’t stand out as it should, so I have to work on that.

And then there is of course a new block of the Forest QAL that I’ve finished.

Now I’m only 3 blocks behind! I really hope there will be time to catch up soon. But at home there is work to do as well. I thought it might be a wise thing to do some painting. The woodwork around the windows really needs to be done, so that is what I started to do. But the idea was only the woodwork!

Our house is more than a hundred years old, and of course we know that you always can expect the unexpected. But this is not really what we were hoping for. Instead of a job for a few weekends, I guess we’ll be working on this all summer.

Groetjes, Dorien

Wow you've been busy, love those hexagons and how thrilling to be featured on the garnstudio site! But oh that looks like a big building project happening there, we live in an old house so I know how you feel!

That'll be another beautiful rainbow of a blanket. I like the white edges with the colourful fillings. I hope your house repairs go well!

So looking forward to seeing you project complete.
May I suggest on the tip of the heart (keyfob) you use a couple of double crochet stitches either side of a treble to form a point??
Blessings

oh no, have you got house problems too? We ripped our kitchen out to fit a new one and discovered the back of our house is collapsing!
