In Bed With Boys & Bunting: Episode 4

Hello Lovelies!
We do hope you are all having a marvellous start to May?
So happy that it's starting to brighten up and more often than not the sun has got his hat on!
We're back with another "In Bed With Boys & Bunting!!"
So go grab your current project, a massive mug of tea and join us as we natter away for the next half an hour or so!

Some Links and Info from Episode 4

Matt finished off his turquoise baby blanket. What a "life saver" blocking is!!!
He's really happy with how it turned out and over the next weeks will (hopefully be able to) figure out a pattern for this cute little blanket.
For those of you that are interested and may have missed the post, here's Matt's post with all of the information about the blanket.

Our current W.I.P!
We are working on this blanket together and making tons and tons of cotton squares to join together.
We haven't quite decided how we are going to join them yet, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated?
We are very excited with how this blanket is coming along, It's so nice to be working on a project together!

Dennis' spot of D.I.Y has produced a rather fun and functional little gizmo for blocking our Granny Squares. It's perfect for blocking many squares at once and doubles up as an easy way to store the squares, until we join them.
Dennis will write up the details of how he made his "Granny Square blocking device" over the next days, so that you to can join the perfectly formed Granny Square revolution!!

You may have noticed that the "Granny Square blocking thingy" is the same colour as the chair in our bedroom. That's because Dennis used the left over paint from this chairs upcycle. To read all about the transformation of our beloved bedroom chair, you can follow the link here.

Finally Dennis asked the "BIG" question and Matt said a whopping great "YES!"
I guess we'd better get crocheting....perhaps something like this crocheted wedding bouquet that we made for our friends wedding? Or a little ring carrying harness for Poppy to wear? Oh the possibilities are endless!!! :-)
