This polka dot afghan was supposed to be part of Heather’s room reveal. That was crazy. As if I had time to sit and crochet with all the other projects. But I’ve taken it with me for car rides and appointments and meetings, and now it’s time to make a decision on how to sew the squares together.
Do you like Rainbow?
There’s one square left to stitch up. In rainbow mode it would be light blue. In ‘random’ dark blue.
This was my inspiration photo: I didn’t have all the colors, so went more simply. I used only the small dot squares in solid colors.
I had originally thought to make mine random too. But the rainbow has a nice orderly feeling to it.
I’ve been in bed for 2 1/2 days with a kidney infection (follow up appointment on Tuesday). So if you follow me on Pinterest, I apologize for filling up your main page with Christmas ideas and crochet tutorials. I decided while I lay (lie–hmmm, That’s why I teach choir) here I decided to get a jump start on Christmas planning.
I lost all humility and told my husband I AM A GENIUS. You know why? Last year on December 26th I took a few moments to take notes on our last Christmas, including what gifts went over well and are a definite re-do; what I’d like to do differently with decorations; and updates for my Christmas card list. So when I went to brainstorm for Christmas 2013, half the work was done for me and the ideas were really good.
Like: Make a bound photo book for Great-Grandma. Her mind isn’t clear and it’s hard for her to remember everyone’s names, so it will be easy to make that part of the book. And maybe if I start now on Teacher gifts, I’ll get them done on time….maybe.
