They do have a slight halo but will be soft and warm to wear.
The snuggly blanket has grown slightly, I will post a picture in a few more days when there is a little bit more to show.
On the sewing stitches front the Plates are also doing well. I have the blades cut, stitched and pressed for 4 more plates. 2 will be blues and greys and 2 will be blues and greens, I pulled some soft pinks from the stash and will make 2 more with blues and pinks. This will give me 9 plate blocks that will finish at around 18", my current thinking is that I will make a 9th block using all the colours to become the middle block, with sashing finishing at 4", side borders finishing at 5" and top and bottom finishing at 10" I should get a decent size.
Of course I have to think about fabric for all this, right now I haven't got a clue. It will come to me, no probs.
Francesca got her first set of cushion covers today and is pleased as punch, she has no idea that another set will be arriving before the end of the week.
Dinner tonight is a version of cauliflower cheese, there is broccoli and edamame beans in the sauce as well. A one dish wonder with a fruit pie for pudding. Nursery food, just the job on a wild and windy night.
I have just checked the oven and it's not long now! That's good as there are serious rumblies in the tumbly.
