Thank you all for the encouraging emails and comments!!!! I do believe my little black cloud has lifted!
I am a happy girl! I have become obsessed with my latest granny blanket. All I needed was a reason to start one. I have a family member that will be going through some major surgery very soon, so I decided to make him a blanket to recuperate under! I had two tubs full of acrylic yarn and started out with no plan at all, although I did have an idea of what I wanted.
As you can see it has grown to blanket size, and it is very bright and cherry. We had such a pretty day yesterday I took it out on the deck to snap some pictures of it.
And Phoebe was so willing to pose with it.
Here is a close up of the center. I am joining the squares as I go. This is now my preferred method....I used to sew my squares together.
I love the moment when a project comes to life. This one took awhile to get to that point for me. I think it is because I omitted the black. I love that traditional granny bordered with the black. And I was really kinda hating I had left it out for a while, but not now!!!!
I am now working on the border. I should have it done this week....but then I have about a zillions ends to weave in!!! I haven't wove in a single thread!! (It's not easy being lazy!).
I am happy to report I am walking boot free and cane free! But still not pain free. PT started last week. I am following orders and doing my therapy at home.too. Boy! This is not easy!!! I can walk up a flight of stairs normally, but I still cannot go down them normally, I am having to do one at a time. But it is definite improvement over just a couple of weeks ago!!!!
I am also going to the grocery store and cooking again!!! Yay!!!! Tonight we are having roast with some carrots and potatoes. I also have some homemade soup done for lunches this week. Hubs has done a great job with getting the meals done, groceries bought, etc....but I was seriously missing some of my favorite dishes!
I hope everyone has a great week!!!!
