Summer Garden Granny Update

Hooray, I have reached my goal of 120 granny squares.  After two and a half months work I'm feeling very pleased with myself,
and here they are in all their glorious colours.
The picture above shows them all laid out in their planned order, but looking at it again (not in the middle of the night) I can see a few swap-arounds to be made.  It's a bit like an enormous puzzle, trying to make sure no square is adjacent to a very similar one.
Yes, there's now the slightly daunting task of joining them all together, I shall be following instructions on Attic 24.  Let's see how it goes.  Deep breaths.
It really has made me smile laying out this patchwork of colour, better still, all made by me.

Whaley Gallery

I wanted to show you the fantastic mini-pics my daughter has made of Whaley.
My favourites are 'Whaley in Space' and 'Whaley the Queen'.  What a talented girl she is!

And who's this flying in? I shall introduce you to Big Bee very soon.

Forbidden Planet Amigurumi Competition

Forbidden Planet have just launched a competition to win the goodies above and look who's in the picture, yes it's Whaley again.  Sorry, by now you may have just had about enough of him but what the hell.  I also have to draw your attention to the marvellous Batman, crocheted by my fellow FP-Insider.  She has her own blog, My Tiny Box Room, which is well worth a visit.
