Challenge #4 & A Whole Lot More!
I'm still going on challenge #4! It's taking awhile because I've been working on other projects too!
Spirit of Flight Diamond PaintingI've finished the top page on Spirit of Flight, which means I now have a row finish! This makes the project 27,900 tiles down and 18.29% complete, which isn't too shabby for such a short amount of time!
I can't wait to get back into doing more diamond painting once the Challenge is complete.
Diamond Painting ResourcesI've made an Information Sheet for the HAED Diamond Painting Facebook Group, which I'll also make available here and on my Downloads Page. It includes information on how to calculate diamond amounts and canvas size. It also includes steps for making a modified order on AliExpress and answers to some frequently asked questions. Please note that the Facebook links will only be accessible to group members. You may wish to join the group in order to view these. I've also added a Spreadsheet that can be used to calculate how many packets are needed to make an order. Please read the notes in the PDF file if you are going to use this!

Cosy Stripe BlanketI was recently gifted a beautiful set of crochet hooks from my lovely friend Sandra. They have a special ergonomic design that is meant to help prevent and minimize pain in the hands. My hands get quite painful as I have Fibromyalgia. These are definitely helpful as my hands hurt much less using these as opposed to using an average crochet hook! Sending out massive thank-you to Sandra for these beautiful crochet hooks!
I'm making the "Cosy Stripe Blanket" from Attic24, using one of my new hooks. I love what Lucy has done with the colours in her blanket. My blanket is going to be inspired by her colours but will be a bit different as I'm digging into my yarn stash and using using heaps more than 15 different colours! I'm also using a 3.75mm/F hook, rather than the recommend 4mm size.
Here is a little preview of my start:
It's obviously much wider than the picture shows, I've got it folded over here!:
Happy stitching! xxx
