Yeay! I'm back on track.
Still left The Ripple in its bag, under the bag, in its new storage basket (got some inspiration from Lucy up there in Attic 24 regarding matters housekeeping ;-), he he).
But, out came the African Flowers again and I edged them all (30!) with green.
Now, doesn't that look pretty! All the time I was complaining because my AF's didn't look like the photo's Ive seen...I should just have added the edge. There you go now.
Hooking away outside on the lawns with the Bull Calf Boy while waiting for the Little Man to finish gymnastics.
...and while having cappuccino at my favourite spot...
(I really should start using my camera for these pics, and not the mobile...)
This is going to be the final edging that all of us are going to do, and will join them with the same. I am so looking forward to this blanket, it is going to look so pretty! But it will take some time to finish, as we are hooking in Pretoria, South Africa (me), Cork, Ireland (Sis), and Potchefstroom, South Africa (aunty).
I also tried out something for a new project that will have to stand over for the new year. Stil haven't got it quite right, will work on my plans, in the meantime these can become coasters for The Litte Beach House.
And so, back to The Ripple.
Ed. later..the African Flower blanket is going to my aunty. Me, my sis and aunty are hooking it as a team, all with our own stash, with the green edging in the same yarn. The blanket will be going to my aunt, who took a Very Brave Step, and is in need of some new happy memories, of which the blanket will be one of the first .
