A few quiet nights and weekend

It has been a great relief for me over the past week to have some rest time.
I was starting to get a bit run down and stressed so some me time was nice. I spent the days doing computer / paperwork and by dinner time it was relax time. This is what I did.
I sorted through some of mums yarns and started sorting... I went from this............


To this..... A beautiful chevron crochet blanket....

  3. Goodness, didn't you get a lot of the blanket done! I love the ripple stripe pattern but I have never seen it done in this way, with the black(navy?) thin stripes defining the other coloured ones. Beautiful. So glad you were able to have a bit of crochet therapy.
