A few weeks ago I decided to participate in Felt Fairy's Monthly Make 2011. The idea is to make something every month. It doesn't matter what it is so it can be sewn, crocheted or whatever you like. You then have to post your make to your blog and also to the Flickr group that has been created to showcase all the Monthly Makes.

For January I decided to make a baby blanket from some granny squares. I completed the squares back in 2010 but never got round to sewing them together. Since I was a little late deciding what to make and wanted something quick it seemed a good idea to complete a work in progress which is also in keeping with my promise to myself to complete all outstanding wip's by the end of February.
I haven't been very adventurous with my blanket edgings recently but adapted the usual shell pattern to make a slightly more pointy petal type edge.
I aim to post my Monthly Make on the last day of each month every month.
Lastly have a sneeky preview of what I'm planning for February and will be the only 'new' thing that I am allowing myself to make until my self imposed rule of - 'finish all wip's' is over.
Don't forget there are exactly 14 days left to enter my give-away HERE
