Day 7 of my Project Linus project

There are about 19 hours left in my countdown to finishing this project, so tonight’s blog post is, of necessity, going to be brief.

One of the things I needed to address today was what would fill the corner spaces of the blanket. Using the information at the Project Linus blanket challenge as a guide, I fashioned this “Joe Cool” Snoopy. While he still needs ears and a couple of rounds of squaring off, I think it will work:

I also had to finish crocheting the small squares of confetti that would be used to decorate the strips along the side, and attach them. As of sunset, I was not quite done:

Last, but not least, is the overview of the entire project as of sunset today:

There is a lot more I could say about this project, but if I do, I might not get it done.
