Tuesday's Tallies Last Day of July


 How is everyone today? I have not made any new squares this week, but I had 21 that needed to be joined and 41 that needed the ends sewn in. I usually do that as I go, but I couldn't find my needles until last week. Moving is so much fun. Especially in July in a heatwave.
 I put in an hour a day, when I woke up and was having my coffee. I am really glad I found my needles. Not all of the seven hours was sewing in the ends. Some of it was joining with the cream yarn. That part was fun though. Here is the product of all my work.
I am not sure if putting this out for the birds would be frowned upon around here, but wouldn't this make a pretty nest? Here is my blanket so far.
These pictures are taken with my phone. I need to figure out Instagram. I joined but I am not sure how to put those photos on here. Here is another shot.
Sixty-one squares so far. Only 299 to go. He he. This is going to be a bedspread size blanket. I want it to cover both of us in our bed when the cold weather comes. Ahhh. I can't wait for the cold weather. This has been the hottest and most humid summer since I moved here twelve years ago. I love winter and am eagerly awaiting blanket and sweater weather.
 Can you see my living room floor? I promise to show the rest of the house very soon. I have it almost the way I want it. A couple of more things to hang on the walls and a few more books to put away. Almost there.
 In case you are new to my blog, this blanket is my project for the One-A-Day group on Ravelry. It is hosted by GingerbreadGirl and she has a link party on Tuesday to show everyone's progress. Go take a look, there are some really neat things being made. Talk to everyone soon. :)


  1. Thanks for coming to visit. I'm surprised we haven't met before since we seem to have many friends in common! I see you mean about your granny love affair. I'll admit, my least favorite part of an project is sewing it together - so I'm a bit scared I might get in to trouble with my new series!!

  2. Your Granny is coming right along. Love your colors.
    Have a great week!
    Eileen :)

  3. Such pretty grannies Kashi!

  4. I am part of the Granny A Day project, as well as Tuesday's Tallies. I like being done with things a little quicker, so I am not using all my squares in one project. It's good you have the patience.

  5. This is coming along very well. I love the idea of one a day to help finish something. I just joined in this week. How are you connecting your grannies? What a dream to have one that is bed size.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  6. Hi Kashi! It is so nice to see your blanket growing, it will look amazing in the end!
    I can´t wait to see more of your new home!
    All the best for you! Barbina

  7. That was a big job sewing in all those ends. It's looking gorgeous. Have a good week. Deb xxx
