Yey - I have completed the sophie's garden blanket which I started in February. Made slow and steady progress and finally completed. I don't want to write too much about it. Just want to show it. That's all. Here we go.
(This is the part which I have crocheted to get the rectangle shape. 3 rows of dc, 3 rows of granny stripe, again 3 rows of dc, a row of bobble st, a row of dc again,.. Made a long piece of solid grany squares and attached it to the blanket using zipper join. Then two rows of dc, 3 rows of v stitch and dc's, again 3 rows of dc).
Then for the border I have done three rounds of dc's, then a round of v stiches, then done sc, dc, sc in each v stitch.

One last snap.
My biggest project of this is over and this is my first blanket. Used so many colors with different shades in this project. Happy to see the outcome. It is now happily smiling in my bedroom. Just for showcasing on my bed.

On my craft side, I am concentration more on embroidery on the saree which I have started at months back. Pallu part is almost over. Embellishing has to be done. And some motifs has to be stitched on the body part. Half of the border is over and have to do the remaining. Hopefully I will completed the whole embroidery whithin this month and within that I should not start any new projects.
Also I have made the quilled photo frame. Some finishing touches has to be done. Will come with that frame and my doodles in my next post. Till then happy crocheting and crafting. Have a joyful sunday.
