How on earth did so many weeks go by since I last blogged? Life is just whizzing by... I pick hubby up from the airport on a Friday, take him back to the airport on Sunday.. and in between life just - disappears.
I have been keeping up with my one-a-day... I love doing it, could probably make a square with my eyes closed, and am really enjoying the sewn-up effect. This project comes with me everywhere... it has done thousands of miles up and down (more like side to side) the country, and has spent many hours in hospital waiting rooms with Mum & Dad.
It is becoming my comfort blanket... I actually don't want to finish it, so when my daughter said she wanted it to be king-sized I was secretly delighted! I don't think it will go that far though..the cotton would cost a fortune! Anyway, here it is this afternoon, sunning itself in Dad's garden...
See that beautiful Japanese Maple turning the kind of autumnal red that takes your breath away?
Phew...64 squares all sewn up, and 5 more ready to go.. so 69 altogether. I'm ahead of myself... I could have a couple of days off... but you know how it is... oh my goodness, you can't be addicted to a blanket can you?!
Behind the blanket, is my Dad's garden.. actually Mum & Dad's garden, but I always think of it as Dad's garden as he used to spend all day every day out there loving it into perfection.. it is immaculate. Now though Dad can't spend much time out there... and Mum has become chief gardener... with help from family to mow the lawn, the garden is still immaculate.... it scares me that it might not be one day.....my Dad is 88, my Mum is 87... life is precious.
Don't miss the wonderful progress going on in the 'One-a-day' challenge over at Gingerbreadgirl's blog......
