After many weeks of making and joining squares and then waiting for some more yarn for the border, my Patchwork Blanket is finished. Yay! I started this blanket on Valentine's Day and it took six weeks to make and join 621 squares. I then asked my friend, Tracy, to send me some more Stylecraft yarn in Meadow so I could make a border. She lives in England and was kind enough to send it to me. It got lost somewhere and after I finally gave up on it, the package turned up on our doorstep in the middle of the night last Saturday. When we went to bed it wasn't there. I got up at 3 am to close some windows because it was raining and saw a box sitting propped up against our side door. I recognized Tracy's handwriting and ran outside to get it.
Timing is everything too, when I got home from work today and was excited that I only had half of the last round of the border to do, there was a package waiting for me. Can anyone guess what it was?
