They ended up with 4 covers and I have 2 more to make them to complete the set ( hopefully for the
anniversary in September ......otherwise Christmas which will merge the 2 colour schemes together). By the way, Jax loved his birthday blanket (hard to believe our youngest grandson turned 7!), made with the colours that he had chosen from the Bendigo Mills Website. My DIL took a photo of him the next morning as he dragged his blanket out with him to sit and have breakfast - made my heart melt! It makes all the time spent making it worth while when you see it appreciated like that!
Next I got to work on the Rabbit Hole BOM which I'm behind in after struggling with those houses to build the village! I'm working on the suns to go in each corner next to the houses and managed to get 3 completed with 2 actually attached. Patterns get released on the last day of each month so I think I'm currently working on the May block - hoping to get caught up or close to it by the end of August before the next one is released.

By this time you might say the weekend was moving on and with it the table became a little full with all the things I was working on .......... So with the cushion covers in the post it was time to get working on Jaceys ( granddaughter) birthday blanket. Her birthday is the start of October. I've had to sit and draw up a bit of a plan to get an idea of how it might look and how many blocks I'll be working on ....... around 70 by looks of things with some plain and some flowered.
I'm using a plain granny square in between a flowered granny for this blanket. By the time the squares are joined and I do the border, it should be pretty close to a single bed size! I'm using all Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Cotton for this and using a 4mm hook. The pattern is a free one - perhaps you'd like to join in with me and keep me company while I do this blanket? If so you might like to start thinking about the colours you will use - I'm using 7 colours on this, but you could use as few or as many as you like! As I said I'm using Bendigo Cotton as I love the drape it gives, the large 200gr ball and the bonus of its price! My colours are: daffodil, Snow, wild lavender, pink rose, primrose, peach and honeydew. Snow will be the edges of each square and the joining colour. Details on this blanket will be here later in the week for anyone wanting to join in the fun ......
Till then have a great week!
