Manly Blanket Ta-Dah!

It's finished! The 'Manly Blankie' is finished at last and, although I was a little unsure about the colours to begin with, they grew on me and I'm really rather fond of it now. I just hope that J likes all the purple added to his requested green and blue! So, here are the photos - apologies in advance; after all the glorious sunny weather we've been having, I finished it on a really murky day and wanted to take the photos before wrapping it up.

The 'standing on the coffee table' shot.

Close up of all its manliness!

Close ups of the border...

On the bed to give an idea of size.

A corner shot...

Folded on the bed ...

With its 'Blanketty Buddies' ...

The 'Draped Shot' ....

... and back to the Ta-Dah!

Do you think it's manly enough? I really hope so; if J hates it, it can always become a car blanket for picnics! Many thanks once again to Lucy at Attic24 for the pattern and Jacquie at BunnyMummy for enabling it to lie flat - any kinky bits are entirely my own fault!

Other things this week include: 

 More applique panels for 'The Fifty Quilt'

I have to confess that Genevieve and I are now really enjoying zigzagging!

And, to cope with the continuing GCSEs, lots of these ......

'Keep Calm Cookies'!

Toodle Pip for now. x

  1. It's fantastic! I love it. Very manly, not girly at all. Your other blankets are all very lovely too. x
