I'VE BEEN FINISHING THIS!
This is my second attempt at patchwork, a lap quilt made in colours to go with my sofa. For very cold days I have a fur blanket to snuggle under (this is a large, old, COLD house!) but the rest of the time I'll be using this. It was a very simple pattern - way simpler than the first one I chose to tackle, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I had intended to make a couple of twin bedspreads but beginning to wonder if these are really needed - DH would only throw his on the floor because he gets too hot ... and the cats would sleep on mine!
Also been having a visit from delicious new grand-daughter - ah if they would only stay like this!! She's so beautiful (reminds me of her mother at the same age), and quite a placid little soul. I'd forgotten how fiercely you love them when they're so tiny ......
