An Autumn Walk and continued progress with the 'Blanket a Long'.

Hi all,

We have had a very busy half term break but managed to get out this afternoon to enjoy the warm Autumn weather and one of our local parks.  We took the dogs to visit Pooley Country Park and enjoyed a lovely stroll along the canal and through the woodland.


The dogs loved the walk and we enjoyed it just as much.  The October sunshine was warm, and really, I did not need the coat I had put on.  We walked through the Silver Birch woodland and discovered no end of beautiful red mushrooms throughout the walk.  The colours were beautiful!

Well, after our walk I managed to find some time to photograph my progress with the 'Blanket a Long' from Zooty Owl Blog.  I have finally managed to complete Part 5 and 6 of the steps.  Here is a photo of the Popcorn Flower and Leaves squares from Part 5.
And I then ploughed on with Part 6 and managed to make the Box Stitch Squares which came out quite well, I thought.
I managed to sew these together last night to make 4 large squares as instructed on Zooty Owl's blog. 
So there we go, another two steps complete and on to the next one.  I will update you when I have managed to get round to completing these because there are another 4 larger squares - Zooty Mandala squares! 
Bye for now!
