Roll Up, Roll Up!

So this is the project I have been working on for the last week and it's finally finished! It's a very soft fleece blanket for my sister-in-law's new nephew. I have been sewing into the wee hours on this one! It's all hand stitched, which is definitely my favourite way to sew - each individual stitch is thought about and I find it a bit more creative than the sewing machine. 

I have based it on a circus theme, the red and white seems to go really well with the blue:




The blanket is edged in red wool using a blanket stitch (one of my favourite!)


I hope Dominic has lots of lovely cuddles with his blanket!


Now that I have finished that project I thought I would get started on my Monthly Make Challenge this weekend, though I think I need a few nights sleep first! 

Also, drop by here over the next few days as I will be putting together a little give-away for you lovely readers to enter.
