The Spring Flower Blanket

Pretty spring flowers
 to cheer up a gloomy grey Saturday morning

Happy Saturday to you all!
I hope you can enjoy lots of happy hooky yarn therapy today.

I have begun my day
 working on the Community Crochet blanket 
that I have been running on Instagram.
This has been made by over 100 ladies from UK on Instagram.
If you missed the original post about this you can read it

This blanket is so thick and heavy
 as many of the squares are 3D flowers

just look at the fabulous detail
 and clever crochet from so many ladies

Sitting under the blanket as I work on the border
 is providing me with hours of pleasure

the lucky winner is going to have years
  of fun and pleasure from all these unique flowers

I have used a flat braid join
 which adds a lovely lace texture
 and am now completing the blanket
 with a deep lace border!

Come back next week for the big reveal!

happy weekend friends

The blanket is gorgeous! Some lucky lady will be very happy to receive it I'm sure. I hope you do this again next year as I was too late following you to get in on it but what a beauty she is!

I only found your blog yesterday (not sure why I haven't found it before) and I'm so pleased that I did because I really enjoyed looking at all your lovely crocheted items. This blanket in particular is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! I've had a blanket using different flower squares in mind for a while and this one has provided me with the inspiration to go ahead with the idea.
