Blooming Mini Daffodils


My mini daffodils are blooming. They’re a fun sign of Spring. I was hoping to get a pretty picture of them in the sunshine. Unfortunately, the rain has set in and the sun is hidden behind a canopy of gray clouds. Fortunately, daffodils are bright yellow and they show fairly well in a photo anyway.
I could have picked a few, brought them inside, and tried to take some better photos. I just didn’t have the heart to pick them. To me, they’re out there trying so hard to cheer up the winter world. I leave them to grow and bloom and glow with hope for warmer days to come.

Here’s wishing you all warm temps and signs of Spring.

WIP Wednesday – Temperature blankets Update

In an earlier post, I said I was going to give updates on my temperature blankets every 29 days or so, but I made another color change that I wanted to share.
I’m not using ‘Aran’ color for the joining. I’m using other colors to help give the blankets more character and help make them easier to tell apart.

For the ‘High Temperature’ blanket, I’m using ‘burgundy’ for the joining (and the edging when it’s finished) because that’s the color of the ‘Highest’ temperature on my chart.For the ‘Low Temperature’ blanket, I’m using ‘White’ for the joining (and the edging when it’s finished) because that’s the color of the ‘Lowest’ temperature on my chart.

I’m hoping that this is the final adjustment I make. Now I can focus on adding the colors each day and joining the rows together every 14 days.

Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the week.

Gifts for a Happy and Prosperous Year of the Pig 2019

A nice lady, who works at the same company as my husband, gave out some special gifts to celebrate ‘The Year of The Pig’.
The gift is a bright red envelope with gold writing and a cute pig on it and inside is 3 Feng Shui Coins tied by a Red Ribbon. (I apologize for the photos of this special gift, I couldn’t get any of my cameras to show the actual shade of the pretty red color.)
She also gave a copy of the explanation of the 3 feng shui coins tied with a red ribbon and how to use them to Attract Prosperity to ones home, office or business. 

I’ve not met this lady, but she must be a truly special person to bless her co-workers with a gift of her culture to wish them a Happy and Prosperous Year.

I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous Year of the Pig!

WIP Wednesday – Another Temperature blanket – Low Temp

The 2019 temperature blanket that I’ve been working on is for the ‘High’ temperatures of the day. I’ve been playing with the idea of making a second one of the ‘Low’ temperatures of the day. So, last night I pulled up the monthly weather report and began a ‘Low Temp’ blanket. I’m using my same pattern and my same color chart.I think it’ll be pretty neat to see how the 2 blankets compare as time goes on.
Hopefully, I can keep both of them going and come January 1st, 2020, I’ll have two blankets to crochet a border on.
Until then, I plan to make an update on them every 29 days or so.

Here’s wishing you all enjoyment in whatever WIP you’ve got going.
