From top left: a daisy throw for Miss E (now aged 11), a throw for a wizard for Master R (now aged 9), a single bedspread for Little Bro (aged 6), a Mandala bedspread for Little Miss M (aged 6), a throw each for the twins Twig and Twiglet (aged 6).
Work in progress:
A throw for Big Sister (aged 8)
Big Sister is having difficulty deciding what colours she would like, so I am making two Amanzis so that she can choose. The one on the left goes with the colours in her bedroom, but she absolutely loves rainbow colours. She is coming to stay with me next weekend so I hope she can decide which one she likes the best so that I can finish it for her birthday in April.
The remaining blanket will be for Big Bro (aged 8), he has had a hard job deciding what he would like.
His Little Bro has the Woodland blanket with Old Brown and Squirrel Nutkin on it, I did offer Big Bro the Karoo, but he said he didn’t like those colours, and he wanted stripes like Little Bro – excellent, we were making progress on what he would like.
Sometimes one has to go through lots of things you don’t like to discover what you do like (hmmm, yep… gosh that reminds me of relationships!).
Having seen the colours in the Amanzi he has decided he would like the rainbow colours, but with more blues.
Oh I do so love going through these design processes with my grandchildren. The satisfaction of making something they have had an input in is immense, and as a result they all absolutely love their blankets.
The blankets are a hug from Granny when I’m not there.
