Apart from the flowers, I am continuing work on the black granny square blanket - 100 squares to date - and I have unravelled the border of the Spring blanket from last year with the intention of adding more squares and making it bigger.
This blanket is going to reside on our bed... the colours are perfect for the bedroom. Unfortunately it just isn't big enough to stretch over a super-king bed, so more squares are needed... many more...probably another hundred ... so this is where the "lots to do" bit comes in!
I found the mini donkey at a charity shop the other week and brought him home to live with the other donkeys.... you can just and so see him on the windowsill on the picture below...
Thank you for your tips on cleaning vintage linens ... oxy clean seems to be popular and not something I have ever tried before and I haven't found any for sale locally yet. There was also a good suggestion to rub the stain with half a lemon and let this dry in sunlight before washing ... this takes a bit more forward planning in this neck of the woods as sunlight is an infrequent visitor at the moment!
