The Afghan Continued......


As my dt work for this weeks allsorts challenge i shared some Afghan squares i had made for a snuggly new blanket (that will take a while to finish). As i work until silly o'clock i have to make some things in advance for my challenges and was not convinced with the squares i had made

This is idea number 2 which i think i will be sticking with!

Obviously a work in progress with lots of ends to sew in and join and a few squares missing!

I'm saving all my wool scraps for the birds for nesting next year (not at all exctied about nearly having a garden)
