As you may or may not know I am participating in the Blogger Blanket Project hosted by the one and only Miss Courtney. There are 6 other chics in the swap and we are each making 6 squares for each other, we will all end up with a total of 36 squares. I know what you must be thinking "Didn't you just do this?!" I did something similar over on Craftster a few weeks ago (I'm actually waiting for 2 more packages of squares to receive from that swap). I had planned to make a blanket from my Craftster squares to bring to work and now I want to make another from these Blogger Blanket Squares. I couldn't really put them all together because the Craftster ones are 7" and these ones are 6". We'll see what happens once I have them all. Plus Courtney mentioned possibly doing another round so I could end up with EVEN more! Never a problem though, I know I can find an awesome use for them all; blankets, pillows, a purse...the possibilites are endless!
Anyway, I received my first package of squares!!
These gorgeous squares are from the darling Miss Heather Dawn! I was so excited when I saw the envelope in my doorway. First off she decorated the envelope with all kinds of cute doodles AND included a very sweet note. I love that the colors are all mish-mashed together. I also really like that there are colors that I probably never would have chosen myself or put together as one square. It will really make this blanket a nice collection of colors. Plus it will open my eyes to all the color possibilites in the world, not just black, red, grey, green and purple!!
I can't decide which square is my favorite but it is definitely between the yellow, pink, green, rusty orange, cream one and the blue, mustardy yellow, purple, pink, cream one. They're both such lovely combinations together! I also think these squares are wonderfully made, such good craftsmanship! Heather said that she was nervous about this swap because she doesn't crochet every day but she could have fooled me with these skills! She's so awesome, it's like she crochets ALL day =D
Thank you so, so much Heather!! You have made this an awesome start to the Blogger Blanket Project for me!
