Crochet Mood Blanket – Week 7

Crochet Mood Blanket

Evening all! Here we are, Tuesday again and time for Hazel’s Crochet Mood Blanket link party. Very exciting this week as we actually have photographs taken in the daylight. Whoop whoop!

Crochet Mood Blanket

I am so pleased to finally show you the true blanket so far. You can appreciate the subtle differences in colour: the purples (usually school days) from the bright, cheerful shades for happy work days to the dull, lifeless tones for the tired, stressful days. The pinks showing happy days with family and friends and the blues indicating how the weather has affected my mood.

A happy pile of colourful squishiness.

Ends

Tonight I made an effort to deal with some of those pesky ends, sewing and snipping to secure them firmly. So boring but a very satisfying job. The overall appearance will be improved ten fold when it is complete.

Happyland Play

Today has been a cosy, homely day with lots of cuddles and familiar play. Many books have been read, toy boxes emptied, the track has been carefully assembled and spectacularly demolished. All good fun.

Ripple Blanket

To top it all I even managed to hook a couple of rows on my sister’s ripple blanket (see, my dear, I have not forgotten!).

Pizza Soup

As well as a lot of stay at home time, we’ve also been living life al-fresco this week, dodging the grey skies and making the most of any break in the weather. Today I chanced upon a notice on the Birmingham Museum and Art Galleries website announcing a visit from a mobile zoo at Blakesley Hall. A cheap, easy outing which would allow us all to have a breath of fresh air and enjoy a spot of outdoor dining.

Tea and Scone

We demolished the rest of yesterday’s Pizza Soup before tea and scones for dessert (not homemade but you can’t have everything!). A lovely little outing before bedding back down in the warmth of home. x

  3. The blanket is gorgeous, I love how colours look much better in daylight!

    Looks like you are having lots of busy fun! 🙂

  4. Visiting you from Hazel’s blog. Love your mood blanket! I adore that block. Humm….must not that for a future granny project. My mood blanket is with small solid grannies.

    And I am drooling over that ripple! I was planning on making a ripple this year but have put it aside for another blanket for now. Maybe later in the year…who knows.
