Keep Calm and Crochet On

The world has changed greatly in the past few weeks. Although it's been 
longer in Asia.  Just over a week ago there was talk of social distancing and now
it's become the norm.  As this hit my hubby's back went out in a bad way and the last 
place we wanted to go was the hospital but his pain was unbearable to not go.  
We went first thing last  Friday morning and the ER was eerily quiet.  Eight hours later 
we went homewith a script for  pain and mucle relaxing relief.  It's been an emotional 
week needlessto say but thankful in other respects as so many families are suffering such
 loss from this virus. I started working from home halfway through this past week as have 
many others.  I have managed to work on my blanket when not working, helping hubby
 and doing all the chores. 

I started part five of the Dahlia Blanket.  Slowly but surely it's been a joy to watch it grow
 and stay cozy at the same time.  What have you been doing to keep occupied. 

You may have seen this picture circulating.  

I want to try and make some masks this week.  Anyone else going to try and 
make them?

More CAL Progress

Working on this Dahlia Colorwash Blanket has been enjoyable and relaxing not 
to mention cozy and warm.  My buddy here likes to sit near me and cozy up while 
I'm crocheting it.

I'm on part 4 of the crochet-a-long but I have seen so many posts of others who are 
making their blankets as well on to the final stage of the border.  I look forward to 
finishing it and enjoying the completed blanket.  I also really like this double knit 
weight yarn for this as it doesn't make the blanket too heavy like using worsted
 weight yarns in the past.

I started some paper piecing with the Granny Chic fabric jelly roll I've been sitting on deciding what to do with it.  I'll most like just sew the hexie onto a backing and quilt
 it to make a small bag pouch.

I made this bedside pouch to keep my phone, fan remote, and eye mask in. I completely winged
it on the size etc.

Made a few new lip balm holders. 

Woke up this sunny Saturday morning and all my babies were enjoying the sun.

Happy Weekend All!
