I have been in my happy place crocheting Attic 24's latest CAL blanket. Week 2 was released on Friday night and I was ready to start as I had completed week one on time. There is no hurry and no need to keep up as the instructions remain on Lucy's blog forever but I simply love the meditative rythm of crochet. Some days I would have a break because my arthritic fingers acted up from too much crocheting the day before so I have to pace myself a bit better. The top 3 and a half stripes are from week 2.  

I have also been stitching a label for my finished quilt which will have a small border of the pictured fabric around it.

Unfortunately, I am having a lot of trouble with my fingers and eyes these days so my stitching is not as good as it used to be. Does anyone else have that problem? 

Another book has been read and returned to my mum . I am fortunate that we often enjoy similar books and can share them.

May your days be filled in your happy place.


  1. The crochet looks lovely Ondrea - such pretty colours. Long may you stay in your happy place. xx

  2. Loving the look of your crochet! Can't wait to begin mine, but must get other things out of the way first. Have fun!

  3. Love your beautiful crochet project. The colours are beautiful. Have a lovely week. Christine xx

  4. Your crochet looks lovely. Like you I have to pace myself to preserve my fingers, I also pop readers on over my everyday specs to help me see a little better.

  5. The crochet is looking gorgeous. Tired eyes at the end of the day are hard to focus....

  6. Love the colours and pattern in your crochet. I have to pace, stitching and crochet too as my fingers play up. I also wear the cheap shop magnifier glasses to stitch these days.

  7. Your new project is looking beautiful. I am due for an eye check up. Nothing nicer than a good book xx
