Making the Most.....
We've enjoyed some really lazy days this week, but cabin fever is setting in. I'm happy to potter around the house and I'm really enjoying watching the Olympics but the children are not quite so keen to continue with this lazy approach to life. Today we are heading a little way up the motorway to visit my parents. We enjoyed a lovely day with them last week and I know they have plans for us today so hopefully some good old fashioned fresh air should do them so good and help to blow the cobwebs away.
I'm sure a lot of you say this wonderful granny blanket from Sandra at Cherryheart but if you didn't do please do go and have a look. It's absolutely beautiful and very inspiring and some of the lovely folks from the We Love Lucy Ravelry Group have started a CAL. I'm joining in but I'm using Heather's lovely Elmer Baby Blanket as my inspiration. I raided my rather large basketful of acrylic yarn yesterday and I had all but four of the colours that Heather used which will make it another stash busting project. I really was going to finish another blanket before starting but what can I say I am weak!
