I'm not the only one making a blanket in my family at the moment. My mother gets the Better Homes and Gardens Australia magazine every month and it was a couple of months ago that she got this magazine with an awesome pattern. Of course my mother being my mother she read the pattern and then went nah! I know how to do that better and off she went. (it was after this that I found out my mum had never read a crochet pattern before and she was the one who taught me to crochet many years ago.)
When it is finally finished it should hopefully be big enough to put on a queen bed at least that is Mum's plan at the moment we never know with mum what things are going to end up like. But they always end up looking awesome.
I did say blankets in the title for a reason I wanted to put an updated photo of my blanket as well. These are a little bit old but I haven't worked on it much but for some reason I kept forgetting to post photos. I'm really good about posting a quick update to instagram but constantly forget to post up here. I will get better.
