HURRAH, this week I finished my Rainbow Crochet squares!
I spent some time over the weekend weaving in all the loose ends and re-doing one dodgy square!
After 6 months of hard work* they are all ready to be sewn into a lovely blanket!
The Rainbow Inspector Approves!
I thought I would give you a little story of how these square came to be...
I was originally inspired by this blanket here:
I tried to duplicate the pattern and make the squares the same but I didn't really like how it looked:
I did some tweaking and made my own pattern that I found worked better for me!
I tried to mix the colours up as with the original blanket that inspired me:
I didn't like the look with the shades of wool I had so I hunted down 2 different shades of each colour for my final squares!
I am really happy with how they turned out and I can't wait to see them all stitched together!
* By hard work what I really mean is a few squares per Brown Owls Meeting, over some cake and iced coffee!

This week I finished the final all colour vintage sheet quilt top!
It's a bit of a non-rainbow colour but there are so many lovely vintage browns I thought I would give it a go!
So now the VINTAGE RAINBOW is complete!
You know...except for the whole quilting and binding part eh?
Some more Rainbow goodness and shots of the girls testing out the cosiness of the quilt tops!

I had a special request from my Nephew to make a Finn hat!
I found this awesome free pattern and tutorial HERE!
I made it from Polar Fleece and used a snap enclosure for the strap.
It came together really easily and quickly...a great little hat if you are into Adventure Time!
You've seen it...you can't unsee it!
