On Wednesday me and a good friend of mine, Anne Lise, went downtown to our local quilt shop, Quiltegården, to do some shopping there. Sølvi E. (one of the ladies who works there) worked on her latest project, and I fell in love with her gorgeous blanket made of Granny squares. Siw (the shop owner) showed us the blocks that she had been working on too, and I fell in love with hers too :o)
I ended up ordering enough yarn to start on a blanket, and I went to Quiltegården Heimdal today to pick it up.
Since I forgot to take some photos on Wednesday, I asked Sølvi E. if I could take a photo of her blanket today. Isn't it gorgeous?

A close up photo:
Since we have a little furball leaving LOTS of white hairs all over our house, I did choose the white one to be my background color. The other colors are pretty much the same ones Siw is working with in her squares.
I will add some more colors later, but this is what I started with:
Yummy colors, and I love the dusty ones. Reminds me a little of the colors in the japanese fabrics. It is a cotton/wool yarn from Rowan, and I'm using a crochet pin size 4.
I have already made some blocks and trying to figure out which colors to use together. These blocks are pretty addictive, but sooo much fun to make. And superfast!!!
I got to deliver two quilts when I went to visit Sølvi A. today, and I was super happy when I found out that she had the fabric I've been looking for, to use in the binding on my "Winter Blooms" quilt. She is really an angel! I will clean cut the quilt, and add the binding later this weekend :o)
Tonight I will be stuck in front of the TV in my favorite chair, with a glass of red wine and making some more Granny squares :o)
Wish you all a great and creative weekend
