Two more sleeps

Hard to believe that in another day and a half I'll be moving in to Farnham Maltings and setting up the SweetGeorgia booth for Unravel!

It's nervewracking to be sure but luckily I'm so busy with last-minute stuff that I don't have much time to be nervous! Yesterday I did a quick run to IKEA for some extra things for the booth and today I'm waiting for a few things to come back from the printers. In the meantime I've been making packing lists and pulling everything into one place. And I've also been seaming!

My blanket layout options. I've tweaked the colours here so they show up a little better in the image.

The squares have been finished and borders done for a few days now. I didn't have a lot of time to play around with the layout, but I came up with two options that I really liked.

I was originally planning on only tying the corners of the squares together from the back of the blanket (a la Beekeeper's Quilt with the crazy hexipuffs). That way, as Felicia adds new colours to her range or discontinues others, I could easily pull apart the blanket to rearrange things at will.

Lara, my uber crochet expert, and I were chatting on the weekend and she taught me her favourite simple seaming technique. No kidding - we were on FaceTime so she was able to demonstrate it for me, and I was able to practice at my end then show her right back. Loving using technology for an in-the-moment how-to lesson!

The nicest thing about the seam is that it's very quick to pull out if necessary later on, and it's almost invisible. The blanket is almost complete and I'll be sure to get some pics this weekend in the booth for a full reveal to you all!
