Hand on my heart, I pledge not to shower this blog or anyone who happens past with weekly granny square updates. I promise not to inflict a stitch by stitch, end-weaving-in account so that by the time this blanket thing is finished, remaining stalwart visitors will be thinking they should have a baby to show for it.*
Just cut me this bit of slack. It’s the honeymoon period. I’m but ten squares in and that Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK Cotton has some fab colours. Whenever I can, I’m slotting in the portable craft. It killed me to leave it in the car for last night’s exhibition opening. I thought I could have looked quite arty, (albeit a bit two dimensional arty), with all those sculptor-types gesticulating about.
In the meantime, the Myrtleandeunice clan are bewildered. I have silently declared that I’m on packing-away-craft-stuff strike – it’s eating into the ‘doing’ time. Instead, I’m treating yarn stashes, cotton reels, piles of fabric etcetera, as potential home decorating notions. Little crafty vignettes keep cropping up around the house, cleverly disguised and grouped with other stuff in a vain attempt to look convincing. Here we have a little yarn vignette. That’s a spot of cheerleading typography in the background. By George! (Who is George? Anyone know who George is? And why is he always so emphatic?), This is not another non-finisher. I AM in for the long haul. I AM going to finish this thing!

PS. Pop over to Kirsty’s. I’m thinking she could probably point you in the direction of another Creative Space or two...
