I’ve been a little quiet on here lately but the blanket hasn’t been forgotten! Last weekend I went home for my little brothers birthday and fathers day; the weather was gorgeous and it was so nice to be with my family that I couldn’t bring myself to pick up my crochet hook! However I am very much aware that we are very close to the end of June and 30 Days Wild so I have been busy catching up. I have everything made up and am now in the process of sewing everything together.
Here’s a closer look at days 16 – 20 all finished:
Day 16 – Dolphin
Day 17 – Swift
Day 18 – Sycamore leaf
Day 19 – Bumblebee
Day 20 – Owl
These are a mix of patterns I’ve found online or that I have made up myself. I will update with all the details soon but I have another 5 squares with ends to sew in!
Today we have a little fern (it does look quite like bracken but they both work)
Pattern from Attic 24 winter wreath.
As we’re halfway through I’ve stared to assemble the blanket and have even made a banner but it’s date night (aka Matt’s payday) so we’re off out for dinner and finishing that off can wait until later 🙂 If you want a sneak peek look on my instagram stories (@bethaucott)
I’ve had a really lovely afternoon sat out in the sunshine catching up with uni friends. It was so relaxed and the weather was gorgeous. Todays square is a sunflower and just looking at it makes me happy and think of this afternoon 😊
I was full of very good intentions for day 10 and packed my crochet into my overnight bag so I could finish up the square whilst at my best friends house. However various elderflower flavoured drinks and the fact we hadn’t seen each other since October meant that it didn’t happen. Oops!
I still had technically ‘made’ it but just hadn’t sewn it all together/wove in the ends.
Luckily I’ve had time this evening and the square is now complete.
