A Finish and a WIP

I am happy to show you a finished project today.  If you remember a while back I posted about the Kaffe Fusion Blanket SAL/CAL here.  I finished it about two weeks ago took pictures and really did not have any time to post about it until now.
Could not decide which way I wanted to hang it on the back of our sofa at first but I think I like the next look better.


If you are making one of these from the Tutorial you will notice a lot of differences in the one that I put together.  Started out the same but decided I wanted my corners to meet so used my knowledge of past granny squares and made the corners squared off instead of round.  Then I decided that I wanted the throw to be larger and added another color around each square but used the same amount of squares the tutorial called for at the Sewing Daisies link.  After crocheting all the squares together I decided it needed a boarder.  I went around the complete throw twice with 1/2 double crochet then I used a boarder that I found in the Around the Corner Crochet Boarder book by Edie Eckman.  You can find it here.

As for my WIP, I just finished a block for the Girls Own Stitching Club over at Red Brolly.

Here is the lay out so far:

I am using the 30's fabrics that I have been using in the Great Granny Square quilt for one of our guest rooms for this wall hanging. As with the quilt I am trying to get that scrappy look.  I am working on the center block right now, the next block comes out in a week or so with the last block to follow the beginning of next year.  Is anyone else working on this BOM?  Let me know I would love to see how yours are coming along.

I hope everyone is having a great week!  Blessings from our home in the woods.

I'm buried in Christmas over here. Looks like we've been robbed, but it's such a mess I wouldn't begin to know what the thieves would have taken! I'm sooooo purging this year!!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
