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.

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.
