The Hogwarts Bunch Blanket

Remember these guys from aaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago?!?!
Guess what....
IT'S FINALLY SEWN TOGETHER!!!!!






Please scuse the blood red sweaty face - it’s a balmy 30+ degrees or so here in Australia and it’s a REALLY EFFECTIVE BLANKET~~!! Phew!!!

I still need to crochet a couple of rounds as the joins have slid up a little bit, but to be completely honest with you, trying to do that in 30+ heat is beyond a joke so it can friggin wait!!!
As you can see the thing is HUUUUUUUGE and covers my parents QUEEN SIZED BED quite comfortably!! Mine is only a double, so had to steal there’s for the photoshoot -_^!
I started this project on the 23rd July, 2009 and I gotta tell you, I am so stoked with it!!
I will have more photos and of course the all important tutorials on how I went about turning the panels into one massive arse blanket on my website in the next week or so if anyone is interested (http://totallee.net) -_^!

i have been watching this project develop, so it's great to see it finally stitched together!! I like how you have Ginny looking up at Harry too! Very well placed

It is hot here at the moment (i'm an Adelaide gal myself) so you're keen to be working on it. I've put my yarn crafts on hiatus until some cooler weather comes along.

Thank you!!
Apparently we're in for a week of 30+, so I think I got it done just in time. Just a pity I can't put it to good use for another 6 months or so :(

i have a little baby boy (8 months) that i'm more worried about than anything else. We have an older double brick house that keeps out most of the heat so hopefully we'll be alright. There is supposed to be a cool change coming in the next day
