Sneak peak at finished blanket

Hi there friends...

I miss you all and have been trying to catch up with your blogs while we are still preparing to move. It looks like we are moving to our new house sometime in the end of this next week ... so for now I have been packing, and packing and packing...
I'm so tired, but also so happy that we are soon going to be in our new home starting a whole new phase of our lives.
While preparing to our move I have been working on a new blanket... That is right .... Crazy me, I started a blanket for my niece who graduates from High School this next week. I have been working on it every single free minute I have, which I have not had much this days. I have not worked on anything else this whole month... Which you know how hard it is for me ... I keep thinking about 10 other projects I want to work on, but I also really want to finish this blanket for her...

Because I haven't taken any pictures of it yet, today I will show you a few pictures, Just a sneak peak of my SIL blanket. The Japanese flower blanket I gave to her in the beginning of the month... Remember ???
I still have to do a proper photo shoot, but I really don't have any space to do that here so I will wait till we get to our house ...
In the meantime ... Here we go... Just a couple of pictures to show you one of my favorite blankets that I have made ...

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and since we are celebrating Memorial Day weekend here I. The US I want to thank my husband - who served in the US Air Force for 10 years - and all the service men and women ... THANK YOU for your service and for keeping our country safe.

Thank you to all my followers and all my new friends for stopping by and for hanging in there in my absence... I will be back soon!

Have a fantastic week :)


  1. Hi Taci and good luck with your house move, it must be quite a relief to know you are almost there, hang in there it will soon be over and then you can settle and adjust into your new home.
    This is such a pretty motif on last months blanket for your SIL, I like the openness of the blanket and it's so colourful. Don't fret over not visiting us all back, we are not going anywhere and understand how busy you are right now.
    I am working on a French written crochet pattern for a racer back summer top for my daughter. I am translating it and I am getting along quite well with it, so a big tah dah soon I think.
    Take care xx
