here's mine so far.
I'm using acrylic, in brown. I'm doing a moss stitch instead.

Which buttons do you like best?

All done!




If you've got a keen eye, you'll notice the mistake on the back. But I couldn't be bothered to fix it!

It fits great, except the armholes are a little tight.

(and yes, I really am that white)

erikasewing and 615bride, they both look great!

Here's all the pieces of mine. My sleeves are a little shorter than called for.
I'm just waiting for it to finish blocking, then I can seam.



I hate waiting!

5  My first blanket! in Quilting: Completed Projects by april_cocaine on: September 28, 2007 12:14:37 PM
I finally finished my first blanket/patchwork/quilt the other day. It's by no means perfect, but I'm happy with it.











It's made entially from fabric scraps, left over from my last clothing collection. I ended up with a lot of random sized scraps, so I sewed them into strips, and then sewed all the strips together.
I did it all on my machine, which I found quite tough towards the end! Fitting all that fabric through a machine is pretty hard.
I only quilted the green squares. I may do the other solid coloured ones at a later date, before I send it off.
 I used a yellow gingham for the backing, and an old heavy blanket for the batting.
It's for my Nanna's brithday, and it's lap-sized, so she can keep warm while watching telly!

I'm up to the armpits, ready to divide. I've only made one mistake so far, but I manged to fix it.


Singlemom, I love that yarn! The colour is so pretty.

Here's my progress. I'm using Stylecraft Special Chunky. It's so soft!



Hopefully I'll be done with the bottom lace tonight, and I can start the ribbing soon.

Well, I've gone ahead and made my won two squares! They're both my first crochet granny square attempts, and I think they came out quite well.


Both were made using stash I already had.

And I've made a page in my personal journal documenting what I've send and recieved. http://april-cocaine.livejournal.com/120151.html

Anyone heard anything from Kazkitty and Chibi elphie? THose are the last two squares I need.
