BESPOKE BABY BLANKET

My knee operation went well and recovery is good.  I started back at work Monday of last week.  My knee is still a little sore at times but overall I am happy with it.  The surgeon says it takes six weeks for it to plateau out and the way it is at that point is the way it will be.  
 
I managed to do quite a bit of embroidery during the day light hours and I worked on this at night, I managed to complete this in about 3-1/2 weeks which I was very chuffed about, the cluster rows take a while to do.  This is the finished baby blanket, it measures approx. 35ins x 52 ins plus the border.  I have taken the photo on the kitchen table at work..
 

Here is a photo of the clusters up close.  A very effective pattern and this is my first go at this pattern.  I am currently working on another one which has more colours and looks really cute.  Looking forward to showing that one to you soon.



Cheers
Kaylee
