A Happy McPhee Easter weekend


There has been much God activity in the house, as would be only right and proper. But please let me just show you McPhee!  All her squares are joined up, and I am now sewing in lots of ends and starting to work the edging.


Prince Charming facilitated the final stages with breakfast in bed and photo shoot.


McPhee might just as well be called the Polyfilla Blanket, so great has been the need for improvising blocks and joins!

This was the final chunk, joining the penultimate square to the last custom-sized trio, referred to affectionately as the shamrock set.


And here for those of you who like the Strawberry Scale of |Measurement are those for whom I really must tear myself away and hide eggs...

Have a super rest of your Easter weekend. I would highly recommend a Lenten blanket project for the quiet perusal of important things. Especially if it happens to be the coldest Lent in many years!

Your little pony tail is just like mine.

McPhee is simple adorable! I love the varied shapes and sizes and colors. Joyful is what it is.

Wow - this looks even more gorgeous every time I see it. So you'll be living on the edge for the next while then.

That is a lovely blanket, Fraise. It is not lachrymose at all, but full of colour, joy and LOVE

It's turned out very nice! I love how colorful it is. So you're a blonde? I've tried imagining what you look like. Are you also tall?

I am very impressed! I tried to learn granny squares this weekend and still can't get them figured out. I have a bit of a disadvantage though in that I am left-handed. My MIL who is also left-handed, ironically crochets right-handed and therefore even she can't teach me. Guess I'll have to stick to knitting.

Blessings!
Deborah

I'm giggling at the "are you tall?" question because I know the answer.

Lovely blanket!

Wow! This is really neat! I love the almost modern 'old-fashioned' feel of your work!
