Been trying to squeeeeeeze in a little hooky time earlier today, and let me tell you it's not been easy. These days I have to be be extremely determined, very excited, and just a weeny bit desperate to try and attempt any daytime hooky with my daytime Little Buddy beside me. He certainly challenges my hooky capabilities, not to mention my patience.
I was thinking back to last year when I was working on the edging of my Big Blanket, remembering those oh-so-nearly-finished feelings so well. And oddly enough, when I bobbed back into my archives to read about the final finishing off of BB, I realised it was exactly a year ago (look :: the 20th and 23rd July 2009). I think the third week of July must contain magical finishing off powers.
So anyhow, this afternoon I made slow progress. Sloooooooow. And really that's how it should be, cos Little B does deserve to take priority over a blanket.
But once my kiddiwinks are tucked up in bed, evening time is my official hooky time, and this evening I have been working like the clappers. Like really, really hooking that Edge as fast as my little fingers could go.
And at 9:20pm it happened :: the edge of The Edge was complete and it was The End for the Granny Stripe. It's too dark now to take photographs, but let me just say that I am waaaaaaay beyond happy with this latest blankie. It's quite heart-stoppingly gorgeously Gorgeous.
I'll be taking a whole shed load of pics as soon as the light and Little B allow (tomorrow hopefully), so we will be ta-dah-ing with gusto very very soon. oooo. eeeeee. ooooeoeoeoeoeoeoeoeoeooooo. I am so very very very excited I may very well not sleep tonight.
Excited oooeoeoeoeoeoeoeoeoeeeeeeeee yes I am!!!!!!
