Cosy New Blankie

Just wanted to pop in and share a little love I found this week.  


Super soft 'Vintage' style throw - very CK ish.  It's soooo very soft and it's my new TV blankie, you know when it's a bit chilly or you are a bit poorly and you just want to curl up on the couch.


I have shown it here on my bed just to give you an idea of the size of it, my bed is king size and it almost covers it.  For £8.99 I was rather pleased with it.  There is a stem print one in the same store which is very Orla Kiely - same price.  B&M Bargains again, one of the better cheap stores for neat finds.

In other news I have been busy with my crochet hook as I finished off all of my squares for the blanket swap last night.  I have posted most of these out this morning and the rest will be on their way on Monday. 

 

I really enjoyed making these but kind of glad I've finished now as I have another project that I'm itching to get on with, a Christmas Quilt of all things, in March!


A wonderful Lynette Anderson gift from a good friend and I am itching to make a start on it, I will keep you up to date with my progress on this.

wow! that throw really does look expensive!...it makes you realise whats out there for a lot less doesnt it. Primark for example are doing some beautiful spring like florals of home stuff and really pretty just like some of the bigger and more expensive brands. your bed looks beautiful kandi, x

Ooh that means I should recieve my square from you soon! It's so exciting. Your packages look beautiful, I'm afraid mine don't look like that but hopefully you will like the squares. Good luck with your Christmas quilt, I made a log cabin one a few years ago and love it. xxx

I have a similar fleece bought in Dunelms. Last week both myself and my little (newish) great-grandson were snuggled up in it xx

Oooh, lovely! I don't think we have a B & M by us.Shame! I can't wait to see what you do with the quilt. I'm so glad you're going to make it and it has gone to a good home rather than languishing in my craft mire for ages. xxx
