“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”
This quote from Lewis Carroll pretty well sums up how I've been coping with daily life this last week. I've multi-tasked and multi-tasked and still feel behinder!
These are the first squares that start another Bloggy Blanket Chain that is being hosted by Mum at Mum's Simple Living blog When the blanket is complete it will be donated to a good cause.
I can't speak for the rest of the bloggers who are participating or who I hope will participate but I feel that although my few squares are but a drop in the ocean where helping people are concerned at least I feel I am doing something, so much more than just dropping a coin into a tin.
If anyone would like to help keep this chain going and crochet a square for a good cause (it need only be one) please pop into Mum's Simple Living blog here.
I am convinced that the other participants will agree with me when I say I believe these squares are saying "you are not alone,WE care!"
Further more I'll echo what Arwedd so rightly said "I hope the end recipient feels all the love we bloggers sent along its journey"
The following squares are my contribution to the blanket and following on from the theme in a previous post ,I have designed these two squares myself for this purpose.
Both these squares are pretty straight forward and not too intricate, they are in fact, when you consider the multiple variations of motifs out there in the crochet world and new ones popping up continuously from creative crocheters,similar to others but not the same nor created by tweaking another design!
Double peak square
Six ring flower square
I have never written patterns before as I rely on samples for my patterns. However I am going to give it a bash and I'll be making up patterns for some of my designs in the near future.
Postal services has had me a bit stressed out these last few days as I waited for the bloggy blanket to get to me. However I finally received the parcel from Arwedd yesterday, safe and sound.
and there it was our bloggy blanket.
I rather like the idea that I am actually going to add my squares to the blanket myself and I get to see and hold the blanket too and not just send a few squares to someone. However that is not all folks I had one of the most thrilling surprises and Arwedd may be thinking what's all the fuss about but I consider it absolutely wonderful that a person I hardly know who hardly knows me has altruistically thought about me sufficiently to pop into the bloggy blanket parcel a few goodies for me too!!!!!
I LOVE BLOGGING!!!!!
and here you have the surprise GOODIES:
A lovely little handmade notebook ,a butterfly biscuit cutter,ribbons,shortbread (gone into hiding now) and ......... I must highlight these because I've never seen any like these before:
