Sorry I couldn't resist taking a snap of this heart in my coffee today. I see loads of blog posts dedicated to finding hearts in everything but I never seem to so when I saw this I just had to snap it.
Yes I guess you have to look closely to see it! This was my lovely latte - a weekly treat from Libby's which you can read all about here. This time, served up with this little beauty!
Now to be fair, I did not eat all of it by myself - way too much - so I shared it with my other half. We have made it a weekly treat to go to this little cafe? Bistro? Bakery? I'm not sure what you would call it. However, this week, we have the Littlies off school so we thought we would take them too and see if they liked it. They both had huge slabs of Rocky Road and ate every last morsel.
I thought I would do a quick update on my blanket situation. I have made all the squares for my willow blanket and here is how they look. I was thinking of joining them like this - kind of winding the colours together snake like back and forward but now I am not sure and think maybe I should just go random?
I began to join them using the continuous flat braid join which looks fantastic but I ran out of yarn on the second row! Grrrrrrrrrr so I might unravel, buy more yarn and then try a random style. What do you think??? I really love them. Such pretty squares. I really enjoyed making every one of them. I thin it will make a nice sized blanket once I have joined them and done a border around. Yes I will have to think of the prettiest border for this.
I also thought I would send you a quick update of the Elmer blanket I am in the process of making. This seems to have been going on since forever as I have left it and picked it up and left it and picked it up etc...
Rather rubbish pic of it but you get the gist of it right? I think I could be ready or almost ready to do the border on this one as I am plain getting bored of it. I don't think it's going to make double bed size and so may be relegated to the couch or the kids' beds. Not decided yet. I promise to take much better pics once it is complete.
So that's me for now. I will update soon on the Elizabeth Lillie sampler as she is coming along nicely too.
Thanks for reading today.
