Taa daa... The Crochet Mood Blanket!

Woo hoo!  A year of my life has gone into this blanket, it first started here and now it is finished.

A year.
I started this when my baby girl was just 4 months old and now here she is year on!
The blanket is toddler length in a squarish shape.
It's fun to watch Joe & Laney's reaction to the finished blanket, you see for a year they have watched me make it but they couldn't touch ...and now, well now it's a cubby house, a wrestling mat and apparently a tug of rope!

 Oh my, isn't she just adorable....

 ..sibling love..
 It's hard to photograph as my house isn't spacious but here it is on the back of the couch ...

 and then turned around to see the other side...

So what now?
Well, now I take a break for a day. I promised myself that I would buy myself a colouring book but now I am thinking of this poster as it is how I feel after spending two nights crocheting until 1am to get the thing finished!!  Once I regroup, I'll be starting my #2015samplerblanket - will you be joining me for this?
Are you wondering how I did the pompom border? If so, then the tutorial is here.....


  1. There it is in all it's glory! Great work. Such a big project. You must smile each time you look at it finished?! Your little ones look happy indeed to have such loveliness to play with. :)

    1. Thanks Christina. Sometimes you can fall out of love with big projects but I think the different size squares & the unplanned approach of this kept me going...and yes, I am still smiling at it!

  2. I love the way the squares differ in sizes and the border is so cute! What a work it must have been, congratulations!

  3. it is stunning! Congratulation!

  4. Looks awesome! Well done :)
