My little WIP started last year.....
.......One thing I did take away with me on my little Christmas Hols was my beloved Evening Sun Blanket.
I started this blanket way back last year. She originally started out as a cushion. But as I started her, something happened...............
As soon as I had worked up a few little squares, I could feel this wasn't going to be an ordinary little project. Something rather lovely was starting to happen.
It's like she had a special bit of magic to her. Very quickly 'it' became a 'she', like she was alive and was willing me to create her. She didn't want to be a cushion......she didn't want to be a small blanket.......she wanted to be something of a proud size. A size that she could envelope us all within, and give us the best snuggles outside in the evening summer sun. Very quickly I fell head over heels in love with her.
Sadly, yarn shortage and the loom of Christmas and all its panic meant that she had to be put to one side.............. until I had time to give her my full attention again, and we could pick up where we left off.
Throughout Christmas I was in my stride again with her. She was lovingly worked on..............until, once again, yarn shortage were to part us again.
So, yarn now again in hand, I pick her up and carry on. I still have a way to go to reach the size she wants, and deserves to be.
She has such a calming effect on me. There is something so soothing in putting the colours together and watching her grow and begin to breathe life.
She has already stolen many a heart within the family, and the excitement at when she is finished will be almost too much to bear.
She makes my heart flutter
