The blue blanket has a home

I had intended to give my blue blanket to my son.  But he indicated he did not want it.  So I gave to a young lady for her birthday and she was pleased.  The camera is still missing so now picture.

My cream, pink and purple effort is sailing along.  The pattern feels better to me and it is just flowing from my hook.  It is about 50 cm long.

The weather has been cool so it is peaceful to sit and crochet while I watch my hour or so of TV each day.

Another two weeks have flown

Right now I am feeling bored and beyond frustrated.  

For example my sixteen year old leads us a merry dance.  Recently she was given a diagnosis of oppositional defiant and I do not dispute this.  I want to photograph my finished blanket.  There begins the latest fun.  I can find a flat camera but no charger.  May2012, while we were on a three day cruise, my camera battery disappeared.  It seemed an impossibility considering we were living in a cabin at the time.  Eventually I bought a new camera.  So now I can find the old camera and not the new one.  A few days ago I found the old camera charger minus the electric cord in my daughter's rubbish.  Iam sure she has the other stuff and is lying about it.  But I cannot find it.

So my dears no photo of my finished blanket or my new work until I put everything together again or play funny games with this lap top.

Aside from the whine listed above life has been busy but uninteresting.  Miss 16 is no enrolled in a TAFE college for next semester.  Dad's dementia is increasing and I really have to go clean a lot of canola oil off the kitchen floor!

Take care everyone.

An unexpected break

Time can fly.  We were given the chance to take a break by our respite service.  I was give a short while to get ready and go.  So that is what we did.  More on that later.

The best news is that last night I put the final stitch in the blue blanket and now am sewing in the ends.  Hopefully it will be ready to be photographed soon.
