We should post our fabrics and yarn! Cheesy  I certainly don't want to join in another craftalong! Cheesy

I feel the same, I'm more of a plod-a-long  Cheesy
I'll hunt up my yarn and some complimentary fabrics and snap a pic.

Speaking of afghans, I have one to show you! I made this in the Make A Friend Swap for DesignVigilante. It fits well on my double bed, and is made up of 30 squares.



I'm also almost done with my current WIP, which is on my mini list! I have one row to finish, then the bind off, and then I can show you my Color Affection shawl! Smiley (minus the whole weaving in ends thing, and that blocking thing that I need to look up how to do)

I'm not a paper crafter but I do have some papery bits and bobs in my craft room and so decided to make my sister a b'day card this year.
This is it, my first ever birthday card as an adult (the craft paper and crayon ones don't count  Wink)



and this one the yarn & one of the fabrics I intend to use for my fusion blanket. I'll be making my fabric squares 6x6 as that's what size template I have  Roll Eyes

that1girl--nice color combo!  What color yarn will you be using?

Are you making it bigger than the 24 squares in the tutorial?

Kookla--love the yarn color you picked!  Congrats on your first adult card! (that sounded off a bit... Cheesy)

Indigo_roses--lovely and huge afghan!  Can't wait to see your shawl!  I need a shawl project as well!

I am done sewing my squares with flannel between...next step, topstitch and blanket stitch! Cheesy

Let me see if I can get a pic of my fabrics and yarn before dinner (hubby is cooking while I sew! Cheesy)

Here is my other piece of fabric, I won't be starting until Monday or Tuesday but I'm getting prepared  Smiley I'm backing it in plain white (can't remember if I already said that) I'll see how far these two bits go before I decide whether I'm adding another fabric.

Hey, Always, did you say you were making a blanket out of vintage handkerchiefs and crochet? I would love to hear more about that and maybe see a pic  Wink pretty please.

vintage hankie blanket? I'm all curious now!
And, what exactly is a fusion blanket?
My crafting has mostly crawled to a halt, but I've been working on getting rid of stuff and uncluttering. It's slow going, but I'm hanging in there.

I was curious too. I found a link somewhere, but essentially you do the following:
Cut two 5-inch squares, place rights sides together, sew together leaving an opening to turn.
Turn the squares right-side out, stitch opening closed, topstitch 1/2 inch.
Using yarn, sew a blanket stitch all around, then crochet a  border around each square, then crochet the squares together into a blanket.

I think I want to make one.
