Finally Back

I have been away from this blog for over a year.  Life got very busy, and I had to choose between this blog and another one at WordPress.  Obviously, this is the one I had stopped posting on.  I have continued to crochet, but have not posted the pictures and wips on here.  Because of a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer and it's complications, along with MS, I have had to quit working and have more time on my hands.  So I am here again.

I crochet many prayer shawls and baby items/children's clothes for mission projects at my local church, and the most recent item is the Zig Zag Filet Car Seat Blanket.  The pattern is from a book published by Leisure Arts.  I made it from some old yarn I had in my stash, Sayelle, in the color Frosted Cherry.


I am linking this post to the places on my Sharing Page.

Beautiful! I was just thinking today that I could crochet up a bunch of hats to donate. There are often "drives" for mittens and hats around here (Maine). I have been teaching myself to crochet for about 3 months using You Tube. Lovin' it!

The color is so striking, it's a real pick-me-up color.

Beautiful blanket.

I am so sorry that you are having heath difficulties. Breast cancer and MS are both hard enough on their own, I'm sure the combination is truly difficult.

If you're interested, I would love to have you link up to my Yarn Fanatic Party. http://philwife.blogspot.com/2015/01/yarn-fanatic-party-19.html)

Welcome back to blogging. What a beautiful color yarn. I bet the blanket is very comfortable. I hope that you are taking care of yourself and that the fiber arts are giving you the healing power your mind and body needs.
