The power of blocking!

My friend Joan made these beautiful pillows last week and when I asked her about them, she said they curled up beyond recognition and that they were unable to become the two pillows they were meant to be. I said, let me at them.... I will give them a go on my blocking board. I had to stretch them hard after soaking them up with lots of water.

Look at them now! They look beautiful!! Ahh... the power of blocking.

Another hat for Mom. It's a beautiful multi colored cotton yarn. The picture doesn't do it any justice.
