Hello Crochet Geeks, how are you all??
Quick post for you today. Some of you were asking to see all the blocks completed so far in the CAL all together in one photo so here you go….
Apologies for the creases in the background lol! I laid them out on a white sheet – I did attempt to iron the sheet first but have you noticed how irons just do not seem to do their job these days??? No matter how long I iron the same spot for or how hard I press the creases stay. Yes I did check that the iron was hot. Maybe my iron is rubbish (remember the calico??)?? Mum used to have a heavy, old one years ago. It didn’t do steam, it was just hot warm or cool. I’m sure it used to do a better job. I’m sure the creases used to come out and you would be left with a nice sense of satisfaction at the end, instead of total frustration :s
Anyhoo – what do you reckon??
I didn’t fiddle about too much – just laid them all out. I was sitting on the left when I did it… hence the christmas tree being the wrong way round!
The eagle eyed amongst you may spot the most recent blocks – there are some in there which I did this week that I haven’t posted about yet.
Think I quite like the patchworky, randomness of it all. I highly doubt that it will stay like this though as I would like it to look more like a Cottage Garden as that is the theme. I may re-do some of the plain colour squares into the green colour??? They seem to jump out a little too much??? Or would that be too green???
And that chequerboard square just looks so wrong!
What do you think???
