Almost finishing something...



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...

Note: You can find the Scrappy Happy V-stitch Blanket pattern here.

  1. I love everything you do and I too am going a little more muted in my colors. But don't get me wrong I still love color just not screaming at me. LOL! I was outside today too; 2 loads of laundry hung out (rain is coming this week), spray painting a bench outside and wedding and mulching. When I take a break which is also very often, I have been "squaring" my Maybelle flowers. I have the 30 all done and now using the white to make them into squares. I think they are the prettiest flower I've seen in a crocheted blanket and I thank you for the tutorial and the author of the pattern. Now, I have to go make supper. I thought this was supposed to be a day of rest? LOL!

  4. What a gorgeous blanket! I'm excited to see it all finished :) I must say your garden looks lovely too! Gardening can be a long process though which is why I stick to cacti on my windowsill ;)

  5. Wouldn't worry too much about the weeds they don't notice too much and the blanket was so worth working on. I like the grey and white border and look forward to seeing it finished. x
