Today I made pretty good progress on Eva’s blanket. I’m halfway through the second to last stripe. I’ve decided to do 4 repeats plus one extra blue stripe to make the blanket look more polished. I can’t believe I’ve only got another hour’s worth of work to do, and then it’ll be done!
In addition to my wonderful news about Eva’s blanket, I have even more! I got a new African Violet yesterday. (I know, my idea of exciting news is pretty lame these days.) I have this thing for houseplants, and I saw the prettiest violet for $2.49 at Shoprite while I was food shopping. Of course I couldn’t just leave it there, so I brought it home to sit next to my $0.99 rescued African Violet from Home Depot. I need to pick up a self watering pot for my new addition, but I think it’ll be okay for a little while in the container it has. 🙂
