The squares were supposed to be 12 inches. As I put the blanket together, I found that 12 inches was relative. To what, I don't know. One square was not a square at all. I don't know enough about geometry to identify its shape.
Of course, one block unraveled when I laundered the blanket. That was fun.
Of course, the blanket is all acrylic. Once again, I am assuming the mother will keep her baby from open flames. That is just good parenting, I think.
As you can see Lil Cat approved.
Now that those two blankets are out of the way, I can concentrate on the items I am making for myself.
A white tank top and a skirt . I am asking for everyone to wish me luck. I needs to be completed by the end of July.
More flowers bloomed this week.
I am trying to pull the morning glory sprouts. Morning glories are not as much fun as you might think. They spread everywhere. Like that old movie from the 80s, Creepshow.
Sedum. This variety is a great ground cover or around rocks and such. It doesn't seem to be bothered by the kids walking on it either.
I have worked on a campus for more than 14 years. Each campus has its own type of wildlife. I encounter both geese and ducks.
The campus wildlife. I try to snap photos of the birds.
There are mulberry trees everywhere. The trees attract birds of all types.
And stain all of your clothing and shoes.
You can't really text and walk during the Spring, as you might find yourself sliding on goose poo. Lots of goose poo.
The squawking is fun to hear.
Severe weather is expected this weekend. If necessary, you will find me in the basement with a ball of white cotton blend yarn and size 3.75 mm needles.
I have been doing this since before October 2005 The original blog is lost forever, thanks Yahoo!
