It is a Flower Blanket

Said Elly after I stitched the six outer hexagons together.

I stitched the hexagons together on the picnic table outside while Elly played in her water table and her sandbox.

It was a wonderful day.

So wonderful in fact that we took a ride on the tandem bike to Coventry Ice Cream Parlor. Elly repeatedly told us how much she liked ice cream.

The next few days should be rainy so the center of the flower will sit and wait on the dining room chair. By the end of the month though, the hexagon blanket will be finished. My current plan is to devote all my energy to the party dresses, but it may prove hard to stay away from my yarn stash. Maybe I’ll spin the alpaca fiber. Oh dear, I think I’m smitten already.
