Baby Blanket!

I have been secretly working on a baby blanket for my friend who is due in about two weeks.  She still doesn't know.  I'm probably going to bring it to her tomorrow.  This is what I made for her:

Don't mind the filthy carpet...I moved my coffee table out of the way and realized it was disgusting underneath.  I have the blanket in the washer now and I have a shopping list to make another one for her sister.  Random, but no two rounds are the same.  I found the pattern HERE if you would like to make your own.

Now that my little side project is done, I can work on my Sophie blankets, my mystery CAL, and my Geisha.  Nothing more for now, so happy stitching, everyone!

Random Post

I'm actually updating to let everyone know that I've put all my projects on the back seat for now because I'm working on a baby blanket for a friend who's about to pop and I'm kind of in a time crunch.  I figure I'll post a picture when it's done, but for now I'm not working on anything else.

I have started recording Youtube videos about some game play.  I haven't recorded any videos in four...maybe five years?  One of my friends asked me why and told me that she needed help with the game I'm playing now, so I figured I'll start recording again.  The first game I'm recording is Bloodborne.  I won't have any videos up until tomorrow (probably).  Not that anyone cares lol

Off to watch some Dexter and work on that blanket.  Happy stitching, everyone!

Thank Goodness for Skype and...a crow?

I got to Skype with my husband yesterday and now that I know he's doing well and that he's already enjoying himself (somewhat) I feel better.  I've been busying myself this morning with making muffins and hanging out with the kids.

Anyway, here's some Sophie!

It's not much, but the new section was the zig zags on the edge.  This is the 17th page of the pattern done.

My other Sophie:

This is the 8th page of the pattern done.  I'm really, really, really in love with this one.

Next up, I have where I currently am on the mystery CAL:

This is all 7 squares I've completed.  I'm going to be working on the 8th one this afternoon.

Now, on to something funny that happened today.  Actually, I'm kind of thinking this is what brightened my mood a bit.  I have made a crow friend.  Yes, crow, like the bird.  I was baking muffins this morning and I could hear a crow cawwing, but I didn't know where it was.  I realized quickly that it was coming from the hood vent of my stove.

So I pulled the filter off of it and looked up.  Sure enough, there was a crow stuck in the vent.  So I grabbed a towel from the laundry room and wrapped my hand in it.  I reached in between the fan blades and pulled him out.  He was really struggling, so I wrapped him in the towel so he couldn't escape and be flying around my kitchen.  I didn't want any poop on my fresh baked muffins, you know?!

He settled down and almost seemed relieved when he realized he was safe.  I put him on the porch, thinking maybe if he's injured I'd be able to tell, but he hopped around a few times and flew away.  Now he's sitting on my balcony.  I think I made a friend.

Off to go clean my filthy house.  Maybe play some video games.  Happy stitching, everyone.

Been Away.

Well, my husband has left.  We dropped him off at the airport early this morning so he could go to school.  He'll be back in a couple months, but I've been away because I wanted to spend time with him before he left.

I have an answer for my back problems!  I have 2 herniated discs and I have spinal stenosis!

That's really all I'm posting today.  I've been working on my Sophies, a baby blanket for a friend, and my mystery swap gift.  I'm just kind of mopey today and am not feeling that happy.  Maybe it's lack of sleep (I AM going on 36 hours now) or maybe it's because my husband left this morning, or maybe it's even because I'm STILL in pain.  I don't know.

Just a gloomy day.
