Baby Afghan...finished!

 
good afternoon...
it's a rainy saturday afternoon here.
 
i didn't think it was going to be
'cos it was sunny and windy this morning...
an excellent day for drying
so i washed a few blankets and hung them out on the clothesline.
 
i had to quickly fetch them though
when the heavy grey clouds started to close in from the south.
 
i was up early this morning
tying in woolly threads
to finish my baby sized afghan.
 
 
 
i am pleased with it
&
feel happy to give it to my friend
for her grandbaby.
 
 
 
 
this is about the limit of my ability in crocheting...
especially at a moment's notice
but another friend who popped in this afternoon
has a book of 101 crochet stitches to lend me
so hopefully i can learn a bit more.
 
 
 
 
the rest of the day
was filled with another knitting start
 
 
 
&
fetching a few groceries.
our diet has been woeful in the last week or so...
filled with quick meals
and hardly a green leaf in sight.
it was time to rectify this awful situation
&
get a variety of salad veges,
some lovely olives and other seasonal goodies.
 
do you ever go through periods
where laziness prevails and the dinner table suffers?
{or is it just me?}
 
oh, well...cheers to you my good friends...
you are an inspiration to me!

  1. Carol this blanket is really beautiful and you crocheted it so quickly, much quicker than I could ever crochet a blanket even a baby one. Your friend is so lucky to have you make such a beautiful gift to give to her grand daughter:) I hope you enjoy your sunday, have a very Happy Mother's Day. xx

  2. Oh yes...sometimes I think if I didn't have such a great hubby dinner times would be woeful. You have done a super job of the blanket. Xx

  3. The blanket is stunning. Such a pretty colour scheme.
    Some weeks our dinners are a bit woeful. the motivation to cook just isn't there. so when I am in a cooking mood I try to make double or triple batches of meals and freeze for later on.

  11. So gorgeous and it looks so soft, I'm sure it is going to be so treasured. I still have some crocheted baby blankets my Aunt made my kids in the same pattern you've done, all the more treasured because my Aunt is losing her eyesight now and they were the nicest baby things I had at that time.
