Catching up

| No Comments

Let's see... (I'll update with pattern names and photos - sometime!)

Since I began working on blankets again in May, I've completed the following crocheted blankets:

  • Plum blanket for living room (to replace the white-and-aqua baby blanket I used as a lap cover)
  • Striped scrap lap blanket in bright colors
  • Mini granny-squares-in-stripes lap blanket in pastels
  • Square lap blankets (2) consisting of one large basic-pattern granny square using brightly colored yarn scraps
  • Granny square blanket in dark blues and greens

Hmmm, I've been just a bit "driven" to use up the scraps!

In addition, Bill finished building the backyard plant benches (painted sage green) and made two planter boxes (painted brick red) for the front yard, painted our bedroom, and painted our bathroom. I found time (in between helping Bill repaint our bedroom and "managing" the bathroom repainting project) to spend an afternoon with Mom at Filoli Center in Woodside (30 miles south of San Francisco) where there is a very large and varied garden! I also went plant shopping at Alden Lane in Livermore and got those plants planted.
