My star blankets

I have been busy as ever making lots of  crochet blankets.
However I've been keeping them under wraps as I wanted
To surprise my knit 4 charity friends at our confab
We spent a great weekend beginning of August at Maroochydore,
Queensland. Hubby and I incorporated it into our 12 month
Around Australia trip which we began in mid July.
The larger navy blankets were the start of my obsession
They are based on the Blue Star by Kathy Blakely
published in Herrschners Blue ribbon afghans
The yellow centre I will enter into next years show
The cream centred blanket I have donated to a charity in Northern NSW.

I made quite a few smaller ones for a group called
Little Wonder that  is through RPA (Royal Prince Alfred) hospital in Sydney.
They required 55cm blankets for the babies
I had so much fun making them, even though they are based on the same pattern,
playing with colours kept it interesting.
NOTE: This post was significantly delayed due to computer and internet issues,
it's not easy when you are travelling around Australia
