I’m still working on my throw blanket for the living room. I posted about it before, but it was the lone post lost in the shuffle. I really love the colors–the deep dark pink and purples. I’ve got the front stitched together and the back is done, too. I just need to cut the batting and start putting it together. I can’t decide whether to tie it or quilt it. I’m leaning towards tying it, because it’s so easy and leaves the blanket free of puckering. I was thinking I’d do a patchwork binding, compiled of all the scraps from the blanket, but it will be too much pattern. Hopefully I’ll finish it soon.
I haven’t had near enough time in the craft room this year. It’s disappointing not having the time or the energy to create. I really miss it and can’t come up with a solution to resolve it. Cancel cable? Craft diet? I recall an article in Bust a few years ago that outlined how to bring more time for creating into your life. Too bad I threw that out.
This weekend was our sixth wedding anniversary. We went to Mexico to really celebrate, and had a lovely, long dinner out last night to commemorate it. It’s fun having a marked day each year to look through the wedding album, talk about what we’d like to change in the upcoming year, remember the fun moments from this year, etc. I’m so thankful I have such a wonderful man to share my life with. Here’s to another hundred more!
