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!
