Sunburst progress




Hi All I Hope you all had a lovely week, we had A LOT of rain here in the UK this week so there were plenty of crochet days :) 




here is my progress this week on my Sunburst throw,




I'm doing it in blocks of ten wide, that makes it 35 in without the border so that's plenty wide enough,




I'm not sure how long it will be...I'll just keep going till I feel it's enough :)
I've joined them together using the whip stitch, you can see a video on that below.




Happy crafting in whatever you do
:)
