I only mentioned to you guys that I was making the Spring Time throw the other week , I really thought I could persevere with it and make a few squares a day.
Seems I was wrong!
Things got in the way and I only made a few squares every other day. I got a little bored of it, I wasn't excited by it anymore...
...something else caught my eye....
A Starburst blanket.
I saw it being made by someone on Instagram and just wanted to make it instantly. I made one which led to another (sounds like I am cheating on the Spring Time Throw!) and I just kept making more! They are a joy to make, the pattern has a lovely rhythm to it and it keeps my hands busy busy busy.
I managed to get 64 squares made up for the spring time throw so I might use it for a cushion or I might just go back to it another time. We shall see.
Last weekend was a scorcher wasn't it? We spent most of the day time relaxing in the shade with a BBQ on the go, it was too hot to move! Once the sun was setting on Saturday evening we decided to go to the local fields and have a long walk. I love balmy summer evening walks!
The next morning we went to pick some local wild blackberries. They are dotted around and nearby the fields we visited the previous evening. It's quite cool as not many people know they grow there and it's something we do every year.
It was so peaceful, we took our time to pick as many as we could. Eventually we stopped once we had enough of all little pricks and scratches from the thorns.
We didn't do too badly did we? I've washed and frozen them for now but plan on maybe making jam or Nigella's Kuchen as it was recommended to me.
