Greetings fellow Bloggers! I hope everyone had a great week...and here it is the beginning of another week!
I had a good week. I drove 60 miles (each way) to meet a good friend for lunch on Friday. I took my youngest with me, as she had an inservice day. My friend and I browsed some second hand shops, but I got nothing...nothing at all! It was great company for lunch though.....we have been friends for almost 30 years. We actually shared an apartment together about 26 years ago...and lived to tell about it...and remained friends! She was a bridesmaid at my wedding...and she is about the best friend a girl could have.
Anyway, I have been busy working on blanket #15. This was origionally going to be a baby blanket, but somehow I ended up with an "almost" full size blanket. The lady I am making it for wanted it for her grandson, so I debated on what to do...I realized the error just after I started...she said she will be thrilled to get whatever I I will actually be great for a toddler...her grandson is about a year and a half at the moment, so it should be good for his bed?! The lady picked the colours...yellow background and brown and green yarn. It is actually quite pretty, although not colours I would pick for myself.

On the stitching front...I dug out this design that I started last year. I truly love this design, but felt the need to sit it aside for a few months...I WILL get it done at some point...even if I just work on it a bit here and there. Isn't it cute? I fell in love with it after seeing it last year on
Sara's Blog.

The design is "Creepy Crawly" by Blue Ribbon Designs. Sorry for the awful photo of the design!

Hope everyone has a great day!!

Creepy Crawly is great. Your swedish weaving blanket is wonderful and the colours are great for a boy.
