In a rush...

Granny squares blanket completed

The sun is out here today and luckily are heating is back on after a slight hitch.
We are madly painting and decorating an annexe ready for my husband's parents to move in, hopefully for Christmas, so there hasn't been much time for blogging and sewing.

That said, a girl needs some hooky and sewing time to remain sane!

The granny squares blanket that I have been working on is now finished and looks well at home on the back of the sofa.
 The blankets and quilts have been brilliant to sit under this week with no heating.

The blanket is made from double knit special by Stylecraft which is 100% acrylic.
The main red is a colour called lipstick!

 I have also had fun playing with these pinwheels described in a
 tutorial by s.o.t.a.k handmade.

I usually avoid triangles because of the precision needed to make them work
which isn't my strong point.
This lovely tutorial however, shows how to get a pinwheel by only sewing squares.
 It's a new one on me and I love it!
Hopefully a cushion to follow.

And finally I have cut out a washi tunic in red, ready for the festive season if I'm lucky.

Hope your weekend goes well...
