ALMOST THERE.....


Well, it's nearly there...... the blanket is and also the kitchen.  So, so close to be going done. The trauma of choosing paint colours and then finding the testers look nothing like the colour samples in the brochures, has again led to lots of wasted time, gggrrrrrr! The decorator arrives tomorrow and still no firm colour choice. No worries though, there's still time. 


There's still time for the blanket too; four weeks to go, in fact, before the baby is due. I deliberated over a suitable border, before deciding on a couple of rows of trebles, followed by a couple of rows of doubles and finally, a scallop edging from the Edie Eckman book shown above.


It's going well and I think it suits the blanket really well.



I'm sure I'll be able to reveal the finished little beauty in all its glory next week. I'll leave you with this little hint of Spring, snapped as we walked home through the park from the city this morning.

Excellent choice for the borders, Ros... I like how the treble goes to double to scallop--LOVELY! Soon baby time--HOORAY! Hope all goes well with the kitchen, and choosing colors. We had the very same problem last autumn/end of year when trying to select new colors for the main living spaces while we were doing a big spruce up & declutter. The paint samples looked great in sample format, but not on our walls! We ended up picking neutrals again... LOL! Happy Days ((HUGS))

The edging is beautiful. It's giving me an idea for my blanket, I just have to finish all the squares first! Good luck with the decorator, I hope it all works out.
