Letting my fingers do the work whilst I mainly daydream
The huge range of interesting and innovative designs which are available
And never really knowing what the final result will look like
JOY - I love seeing things grow and am a collector at heart so seeing the pile of colourful squares grow is wonderful....the potential....stepping closer to the finishe product
DREAD - I've never been a Completer Finisher....has anyone else been forced to review their role within a team on work away days????
This means I see the ever growing pile as a chore....this colourful little squares will all need stitching together and whilst it is the merging of the squares which actually produces the end product I find it such a dull job that it fills me with dread.
I have found a solution to this character issue, it isnt exactly rocket-science, I have figured out that if I make big squares rather than little ones there is no more stitching together...it seems to simple when its thought through. I love the creative part but hate the stitching....so remove the stitching...yay.
So here is my first big fat Granny Square. I've made this as a cot / pram blanket for bump when he/she arrives.
I guess there is probably a practical maximum size that one of these single squares can get to...might see if a double bed size is possible, maybe not one to complete on the train!
