New Granny

We like a nest in our family. There is nothing better on a cold evening than nesting on the sofa, tucked in with too many cosy quilts and blankets. It is a popular refrain at the end of a busy working or school week: "Mum. Can I make a nest in the living room?" And down come the patchwork quilt, the feather duvet and eiderdown and the crochet blankets. Then out comes a sketch pad and felt pens, or a new book just waiting to be read, or a favourite DVD to watch. Then we nest for a while until we feel rejuvenated, or sleepy enough to go to bed.

Here is the start of my latest nest blanket: a big granny. I'll keep you updated on how it goes...
