    Thank you so much Helen πŸ™‚

  2. I love this blanket and the scrapalicious carnival cushion. I’m combining squares from both of them to make a more rectangular blanket – I’ll post pics when I’m done! Lovely patterns and great clear instructions, thank you.

    I would still love to see your blanket once it's done πŸ™‚ As for a new challenge….you will have to wait and see πŸ™‚

  6. Love how it looks in the end. Sadly, i thing mine will not look as pretty, since I mixed too many different yarns…But I'm guessing my daughter will still love it anyway, I plan to give it to her as soon as it's finished! I'm hoping you'll post a new challenge for July!

  7. This is such a cute blanket! I love all the bright colors, especially the green. I pinned it!
