Good morning friends,
Since that last post the one about me deleting ALL my photos for my blog, well they are gone, yup forever lost. It is a shame but I will not make that mistake twice.
This seems to be the year of babies, not from me but so many of my friends. And when I hear they are expecting I whip out my crochet needles and start making blankets. So far this year I have made four and have two more to make. The current one is a chevron pattern which I love but this one is not going so smooth. So in the end I am going to rip out the stitches I have done and just do a simple striped pattern like the one below.
This is one I just completed last week it was mailed off to California and in a few days baby R will be here to enjoy some snuggles in it.
With all this blanket making I have not pick up a needle to XS in over 3 weeks. What?? 3 weeks is way to long.I know and now I will be working all this weekend and then my sister and her husband will in town Sunday till next week so I will probably not get around to all my lovely WIP's till the following weekend. This is just crazy LOL
With the lack of stitching I have made some time to read. I bought a kindle paperwhite 6 months ago to replace my 2nd generation kindle. I love it. It is perfect for reading at night in bed, you can adjust the lighting and it does not cast off a glow like a computer or and IPad would. I am currently reading The Fault in our Stars.... I have about 4 chapters left and I have been bawling my eyes out, like seriously this is the saddest book I have read in a long time.
I also recently finished reading The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle #2) it is a fantasy novel and 1,120 pages long. I read the first book in 4 months but this one took me almost two years to read. I have never been a fan of this type of writing but it was actually better than I thought. It was lent to me by a friend who swore I had to read it. Did it change my life?? No, but it did transport me to a different world when I read it. Which is the goal of a witer when they set out to write a book I think.
Hopefully there are still some readers and followers on my blog. I know it has been neglected for some time, but I assure you I am still here and soon I will actually have some stitching to share. Untill then take care my friends and let your needles fly :)
