my chair


Can I show you my chair? It's the photo I forgot to include in my last post. This is the chair in my craft room. It's a carver chair which originally belonged to my Grandma, I called her Nana! This small hexagon blanket was inspired by Lucy at attic24, and there's is a great tutorial for it here. Lucy's blog was one of the first blogs I ever found. I really wanted to learn how to crochet and although I had brought a book on it, I still couldn't quite work it out. In my quest to find out I googled it, and the rest as they say is history! I had grand visions of this blanket covering a whole double bed, and I think it would have been truly magnificent. In the end so many projects were begun that I decided to call it a day and make it a finished project. So A border was added and it is now a baby blanket size. Now I don't have a baby and not being quite able to part with it, it's making my chair look pretty! and I love it.....

Your little blanket is just beautiful and I love the chair ... I have a chair fetish ... I do a recreational upholstery class in my spare time ... spare time, that's a laugh :) ... and as a result, can often be found staring longingly at chairs of all shapes and sizes ... a bit weird, I know ...

Gorgeous chair blanket, Heather. Love your colours. Know what you mean about the timing of a project, sometimes you just have to finish right then and there, because then you can work on something else!!
