Sunshine and lovely weather arrived and I decided to spend the day in the garden weeding and working on the borders and finishing touches of my second Scrappy Happy V-stitch Blanket during coffee breaks. The coffee breaks were many and quite long each time (twink!)... the weeding was done half-hearted and with no major progress I'm afraid... Showing you my lack of commitment to the chore makes me want to hide in shame... I promise to share some progress soon... I know... boring jobs needs to be done too.
Anyway, lets get back to that blanket (which looks hundred times better than my garden!!!). This blanket is made in low volume colors. I call it that because most of the colors are very light pastels, neutrals and whites, only with a few accent colors to get a feel of a Swedish rag rug. A total contrast to the my other blanket which was bright and vibrant. I will tell you more about my colors choices when I'm finished with my blanket, and go more into details of how I think when choosing a color theme.
I'm so excited to finally finish this summery version of the Scrappy Happy V-stitch Blanket. This project has been sleeping in a basket for quite some time as I've been busy with other things. It will be a perfect addition to my summer living room. Or maybe, just maybe, I'll bring it to the summer house to Sweden. But I might just love it to much to leave it there...
