Preparing summer vacation projects

I have started to learn myself to crochet. My goal is the blanket
Summer Garden Granny Squares at my favourite Crochet blog; Attic24.

Here is the best result so far. I will keep practicing, and maybe buy some brighter cotton yarn for a whole blanket this summer. Anybody have any idea how much yarn I should get?

I have also started to wash and iron fabrics for my next quilt called "Summer in the Garden". It is a kit purchased from The Country Schoolhouse last summer. It is based on fabric by Holly Taylor called Natural Garden.

I have made a kit for my mother-in-law in the US, to show her how to make money pouches this summer.

Det blir nok et lekkert hekleteppe Mona. Litt av et mål du har satt deg. Det ligger en award og venter på deg på min blogg. Ha en god sommer.
