I haven't worked on any of my craft projects for ages, and I am currently feeling the crafty bug. First things first, I need to finish the knitted blankets. I laid them out and realised the size I was going for is just going to be too small. So I have a couple of choices here. I can knit for another year to get enough squares to make them big enough, or I can combine what I have and make one good sized blanket.
One blanket won. That was the original plan but Ross wanted his own. I have now convinced him that we can share one good sized blanket and snuggle under it together. So I counted up my squares and I am 2 squares short. Well, I was. I finished another one last night. So now I only need to do one more square and I can put it together. YAY!
The other reason I want to finish it (other than I am sick of knitting squares) is that I have not done any quilting for ages. I have been planning my first hand quilt for a few years (I usually work by machine) and have decided it it time to start. All my fabric is at Mums so I am heading over there tonight to start picking colours. I am doing a hexagon quilt and I want it to look like a field of flowers. This project will probably take me a couple of years (especially the speed I work and how often I get distracted) but I don't mind. I am looking forward to getting started on it.
I walked again this morning. And I am feeling better for it. Tomorrow Ross & I are going hiking. Just to Shepherds Hill, but it will be good. The plan is to do 2 loops which should take us a few hours. It's hard to judge distance, but at a guess I would say 6-7 kms. I am looking forward to it, and the hills will be a real test for my foot.
I hope everyone has a magnificent weekend.
