I didn't post yesterday because, honestly, nothing much is happening around here on the creative front. This week had turned into "checkup week". I dropped 10 vials of blood Monday for my physical, got another year reprieve on a glaucoma diagnosis Tuesday at the eye doctor and we get to check in on our retirement account losses today. Actually it's all good. It's just maintenance and chore week. By the time I'm home I'm not in the mood to quilt or sew. Instead I've been baking bread and cookies. After all, since the physical is done my doctor isn't going to know that I'm eating cookies this week!
But after I get back from the chiropractor this morning I will be working on putting these sections together for an hour or so and will return to it after our retirement review appointment.
For some color, here's where I am on the baby blanket. I worked on this some last night and quite a lot this past weekend. I just started the 3rd ball of yarn. I have 4 balls but I think 3 is going to make a nice size baby blanket or wheelchair blanket. I'll let the charity decide where it's needed most.

I need to remember to schedule an eye doctor appointment for the upcoming months and some others also. It sounds like you had a lot on your plate yesterday so of course blogging wasn't top of the list. Enjoy your cookies!

I am not looking forward to taking the time for all the appointments coming up. Geeze! I'm fine! My 401 (k) has taken a big hit; I may never get to retire.

Hi Vicki. I do love all the bright colors in this yarn, and it would definitely be an eye popper whether it ends up being a baby blanket, or a wheelchair coverup.

Love this colorful baby blanket! I feel your pain on retirement account losses. Mine have taken a big hit too.

The chores can really slow your desire to create. I think my next spate of appointments is November/December. That is sooner than I care to think about.

Party trade floor wind may.

Your day of doing nothing much has me exhausted. The variegated stripes are stunning in your corner piece.
