Nearly Finished--Really Finished

I finally finished the Bushfire blanket yesterday:I know, I said it was just about finished months ago. I don't even want to look how long ago that was, but somehow finishing is not my biggest strength and it took until this week for me to get back to the last couple of steps. I made the second fringe and worked in the loose ends. Then my friend M came to pick it up. She's found the right home for it to go to. I'm glad of that.

Apart from my usual slowness in actually finishing things off, the other delaying factor has been the big table. Well, not the table itself, but all the stuff that accumulates on the table. I wanted to have the whole table top clear so I could spread out the blanket and make sure all the fringes were even. Now I have a beautiful big clear table to work on. I'm hoping I can keep it like that for a while.

the blanket looks GREAT! Well done. I always love that feeling of fnally finishing a big task.
are we taking bets on how long the table stays clear? :)

Love the blanket - I love the feeling you get when you finish a big project.
As for your table, it got me to looking at mine. I think it's under there somewhere ...

My friend absolutely loved the blanket. She couldn't believe how all the colours will suit the colours in her house. She held onto the blanket and patted it through our time together and was going home to put it on their bed. She passes on many thanks. :)
