♥ Finished Afghan & Room Tour


So, I finished my blanket, what do you think? The last time you saw it, it looked like this. I took it up to Wales with me to finish it off. I am really pleased with the way it turned out, even if it did take something like 80-100 hours to make! Weaving the ends in was the worst, it's like, yay you're done, but really you still have 5 hours+ of work still to do. :(
 
Anyway, don't think I'll be attempting such a large project again for a while, haha! For those of you that are interested, I used this granny square design, in 6 different colours, over 151 squares, & joined with this method.

Anyway, whilst I was taking pics of the blanket, thought I might as well show you the rest of my room. Still have the dodgy black carpet, ugh, & one wall is still not done (need some new shelves & to hang some things, plus maybe even still a little painting, eek!), but I am really pleased with how the rest of it looks.

P.S. Oh, & for those of you that are really curious, here's what my room used to look like before I moved my craft stuff out of it!

  16. Thank you for the link! The transformation is stunning! *_* The room looks so much bigger now in lighter colors! I was very fooled by the size of it until i realized the "third window" was a mirror reflection! And I had no idea you collect kokeshi dolls! How lovely ♥ Thank you so much for sharing! I'm so inspired right now ^^ I wish I had such enormous patience to make such amazing blanket! I bet I can't bribe you to make me one, haha ;) You must be very proud :) ♥

  23. Just lovely!! So cozy and it suits you sooo well!

  24. The quilt is stunning! I love your room, it's so cute and girly and the attention to detail is flawless. I'd probably cry every time I'd have to sweep the dust there though - I got rid of most of my decor for that very reason. XD And yeah, moving crafting supplies someplace else is such a change, my room became much more organized after I made a sewing den in the basement. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a change!!! Wow, how long does it last for the complete transformition? You´re a real model. I´m so happy that I know you blog!

    Best greetings, **P**

  62. Gez, I never get tired of looking at these pictures. I always return to this particular post! And I'm so curious what you see when you lay in your bed. I guess that's where your amazing malm makeover is :) I just moved so I'm in great need of inspiration! Unfortunately my floors are so ugly they totally DRAIN my inspiration! :( But I can't see what kind of floor you have either ^^

    Anyway. Bless this post, it's so amazing! ♥
