Thank you for your comments and private emails.  I still haven't been able to reply to your comments without getting a delivery failure notice, even when I type in your correct email addresses.  

These are the finished squares for a crochet blanket I began working on in June.  I decided to make the blanket big enough to fit our queen size bed.  I think the hardest part of this whole project so far has been laying out the squares.  It took a WHOLE day to get the layout the way I wanted.  I've begun joining the squares and will share that in a future post.

The photos aren't great and the blanket is much wider than the photo shows.
Lisa wasn't home when I delivered the blanket, so I left it at her front door. 
My friend and neighbor, Lisa, has been struggling with severe depression.  Medications are no longer working for her and she's been undergoing alternative treatments.  I wanted to do something for her so that she'd know how cared for she is during those moments when we're not there with her.  I decided a large, warm crocheted prayer blanket would be something she could wrap herself in and be reminded that she has lots of family and friends supporting her.


In my last post, I mentioned that my oldest daughter was struggling with undiagnosed medical problems.  She has had many more tests since then.  One test showed a problem with her gallbladder and she is meeting with a specialist/surgeon later this week.  Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

I'll leave with a pic of my confused Christmas Cactus'.  They have always bloomed around Thanksgiving, but never before Halloween.

Take Care!



  1. What a sweet, blessed thing to do for your neighbor, Pam.

  2. You are a good woman. Hope your daughter finds relief when her gallbladder is out!

  3. What a dear thing to do for your neighbor, Pam--I hope it helps to know others like you care so much. The struggle with depression is so devastating for so many...

    Love your new squares and I look forward to seeing your blanket finish :)

  4. I hope your daughter gets good news from the Dr. and feels much better. How nice of you to make that lovely blanket for your neighbor.

  5. I hope your daughter gets some answers soon. What a nice thing to do for your friend... I'm sure it's appreciated and it turned out beautifully! Wow, you've been busy with crochet! Love all the squares and am looking forward to seeing them joined.

  6. P.S. Your Christmas Cactus is beautiful!

  7. Your blanket will be so colorful!
    The afghan for your neighbor is a sweet thing to do, it will show people care.
    The Cactus is pretty, it's the strange weather this year, I'm sure.
    I hope your daughter finds relief soon.
