My Creative Space - Hex Blanket (finished!)





I'm sure all and sundry are heartily sick of the continuing saga of this hexagon crochet blanket, but finally... it's totally and utterly finished! My Big Girl is most pleased and has been enjoying the rainy snap here curled under her finished blanket.

More creative spaces over at Kirsty's.
