I also got some "Spring" cleaning done this weekend, and my body is reminding me that it's not so young anymore! I sometimes forget that I'm 40!! I don't feel it, well not all the time anyway, it's weird to describe, but I have to remind myself that I am not as young as I once was, and that my body needs some rest. It seems to take me longer to recover. I have always had issues with my knees, ankles, and joints, growing up I was always spraining my ankles....my knees would give out.....my feet look awful right now..........they are swollen and my ankles are really "out" there. LOL I have to laugh about it though, if I don't, I will cry! :D
Anyway with all that is going on, my crochet has started to get cobwebs! I need to finish an afghan for my mothers queen size bed, will take a picture of progress soon. I granted a wish for a lady in my crochet group, for a lapghan........she likes jewel tones, and I used a combination of 6" and 12" squares. I used my Circle of life pattern from my recent, "Symbols of Life" designs, and a 6" "Diane's Flower" from my designs as well. Here is the finished product......
I also am joining, "The Crochet Crowd" challenge, starts 4-15 and ends 5-15. This one is for the, "Ocean Waves throw" As usual, I went crazy trying to come up with the 5 colors. I could have went with one color or even two, but for me when I do an afghan, which I can tell you has been a very long time......for years I have done afghans using squares, not one pieces. So this is my first in years! I wanted to go with the amount of colors the pattern called for, and I want to use this for my living room. You can see my couch above, it's a sage green, I have green tiled tables and a green carpet, but I was leaning reluctantly towards green for the colors, but decided NO..........I am using the below colors:
