The (blanket you need after a marathon ripple is) Nanny McPhee has all its squares, I think, and these have all been blocked. Now to the joining stage. This is a completely new experience for me, so today I spent some time reading thereon, and steeled myself for the arranging process. There were six photos, but I have decided to inflict you with one only. The comic-reading sun is there for scale. While I want this to be a (significantly quicker than the ripple) blanket for outdoors and adventures as well as cosy home trysts*, I did also want it to be big enough to give some degree of coverage!
So this is it- I think! The squares on the sheet will be the inner rectangle, and they will have maybe two rows of border, and then the same again with the outer squares. For the joining and the borders I am going to go on using up the stash balls of wool that I have been using hitherto. The plan is to do the same for the gaps that will, hopefully, fill up with granny rows.
Lots of grannies for one Nanny. I'm thinking of adopting the pseudonym Mags McPheedy. I should also say that all constructive criticism on the arrangement will be most welcome...
*I've just discovered, pleasingly, that a tryst is not just an appointed meeting, especially a secret one for lovers. It can also be an appointed place of meeting. Time: Easter Day, just after big family lunch. Place: under the Nanny McPhee Lenten blanket with a cup of tea and a huge chunk of Easter Egg.
