Happy New Year to you. Are you able to move or are you still stuck in that comfy chair? This morning was a shock to our household and none of us were ready for normal routine to resume. I love the holidays, love the children being at home, love the fact we are not ruled by a clock and totally LOVE the fact that the children do not need nagging. But alas, the alarm woke us up with a start and the 'five more minutes' moans resonated around the house.
However, I am embracing this new year and excited about the new things to discover and challenges to be faced and met...bring it on!
But before we can jump head first in to 2015, I thought I should post the last project from 2014, that of the Attic 24 cosy CAL. I loved this project from start to finish and am a little sad to see it completed. So, I begin a new blanket on Thursday with six lovely ladies joining me at my home. Excited does not even cover it. I also have a hankering to make another cosy CAL in the near future with gloriously bright colours, have you seen the ones out there that people are making? They are fabulous and all look so different yet the same. Lucy, if you are reading this, you are one clever lady that brings a lots of happiness to 'hookers'. THANK YOU. should you wish to make your own cosy CAL, Lucy's clear instructions can be found HERE
So with no further ado, here is my completed Scandinavian influenced colour cosy CAL blanket, hope you like it...
