Thankful Thursday

Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • that my Dad is out of hospital and is at home
  • that my sister, Vicki, is doing the best she can to look after Dad. She is amazing and I have told her that she is!
  • that my other sister, Julie, doesn't live all that far away from Dad and is able to help out when she can
  • my crochet and how it helps keep me sane!
  • that we have had some nice weather and I have been able to get my washing dried outside even though it takes a couple of days for that to happen. We don't get a lot of sunshine in the back yard and we get even less on the clothesline but at least it gets dry ☺
  • for the information and exercise class that I have been going to on a Wednesday evening. I have learned a few things but most of all I have learned that the pain I feel afterwards goes after a day or two. I am so thankful for that!
What are you thankful for this week?

"I Just Need Some Space" - Meghan Trainor - "All About That Bass Parody

This was in my Facebook feed and since I love the original song I had to check this out.
It is really well done. Plus what Mum doesn't need some space to herself every now and then?

WIP - Crochet - Fairy Garden Blanket

There isn't much to show (yet) as I have only begun making the background squares. I am on my fifth square though. I've made 4 of the darker pink and I have started the lighter pink squares.

The complete pattern for the blanket may be found HERE on Ravelry.

This will be such a gorgeous blanket once it is done. Although at this stage I am only making it a 
3 x 3 blanket instead of the 4 x 3 shown in the photo above.
