One Hundred and Twenty!

One hundred and twenty blocks joined, edged
and washed, ready to use.
As it's not quite cold enough to use yet, I have it hanging over the radiator so I can enjoy seeing the fruits of my labour over two and a bit years. 

Over that time, I've learned the different stitches, how to read a pattern, and I've actually made useable items.  I am looking forward to perfecting my skills with other projects in the future.

That is so beautiful! I had no idea that using so many different squares would look that good in a finish. Should keep you really warm and looking good this winter!

What a job! I have to say I did not like all your blocks individually, but together it looks fantastic.

Well worth the effort. And I suspect, as you live in the north too, that you won't have to wait too long to snuggle down under it.
Beautiful.
