flowers in the snow for ms. M

Ms M's blanket
It’s finished. Started on good Friday this year it has taken me about six months to complete. It has been made especially for my precious Ms. M. It has been a pleasure to make (following this tutorial). Ms. M has enjoyed sitting with me as I hook, regularly enquiring if it is finished yet. No permutation calculations for this one, its growth has been purely an organic one. There is a whole lot of love in this blanket.

Project notes: Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury Yarn: Frost, Baby Blossom, Baby Mint, Delphinium, Orange, Citrus and Iris Mist.
