Finished Project Friday – Block Blanket

She is done! There were little girl squeals – can there be any more fabulous a response to a crochet gift?! My four year old daughter will be proudly taking her new blankey to preschool next week for resting time. Happy days 🙂

I was able to get really stuck into the final stretch today because yesterday I had an accident with boiling water and ended up in the ED. Hurt like hell but dressed well and cared for. It’s on my hip so resting today in order to keep the dressing still and sterile. The German (my husband) took time off work to take over the school run and preschooler crazy, and I’ve been forced to sit on the veranda crocheting for much of the day. Nightmare, as you can imagine! Every cloud has a silver lining and all that 😂

The border is #107 from Edie Eckman’s beautiful little book Around the Corner Crochet Borders. The blocks are from the wonderful 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton. These are Book Depository affiliate links – I earn a small commission if you purchase either book by following my links. I think it’s clear from this and previous posts that my love for both these books is genuine indeed 🙂

Now, where’s my hook? There’s lots of lovely afternoon sunshine left!
