Starry progress

Progress is going to look great with all the striped cushions don't you think?

Tried the other option of NO JOINING COLOUR...just the stars but with a white daisy middle for the possible second throw
and a random yarn for the points
But first l want to finish the one l have already started
so 3 completed rows 2 more ready to be joined and 4 to make..going for a slightly smaller throw with 77 stars and l am making two
 any suggestions for the edging?....always a problem edging Hexagons, don't you think?
Any one tried making a half hexagon at all?

A big thanks to Nora, who suggested l use sparkly metallic yarn to make my Christmas place mats 
a lot quicker than trying to do beaded ones and l think will work just a treat, washable too

Stars first though and l must finish the bobble hexagon too..oh! and socks and a hat for James, he put in his order and his blanket many days left 'till Christmas...ooops 38, how did that happen?

Hope your day is filled with colour too


  1. I'm really loving how your stars are developing Suz.

  2. That is going to be a beautiful blanket . xx

  3. Wonderful. I adore them both for different reasons. If I had to pick, I like the one without the border. Your colors as always amaze me. Did I tell you how happy I am to see you back to the old format on you blog....I feel home again.

  4. Looks fab against the cushion!x
