Phew! Thank Goddess this week is over. I've already said about the long hours over the past few days-on Thursday I had a call from my estate agent with regard to a viewing. At 10am this morning. With no time for any cleaning!
As it was, my pre-Christmas clean up paid off as I only had to do a bit of tidying. Still, I didn't get home from work until about 5.30pm last night. Myf needed dinner and winding down before bedtime then I got on with the bedrooms and the dining room. A quick shuffle around in the living room and bathroom and it was done-still didn't get to bed until about 1.30am. Up again at 7.30am to get a couple of last minute bits done and had Myf up by about 9am (she needed a lie in, poor thing, she's had a very long week too!). The viewing started on time and the client seemed really nice but as soon as he saw the house had a flat roof outside, he was done! He didn't even look upstairs! To be fair, I appreciate someone who knows what he wants and isn't wasting anyone's time but it was a lot of effort for only five minutes....
Anyhow, I'm eagerly awaiting my new crochet book at some point today (the post doesn't often get here before 1pm) and I've finished a few more squares :-)
I'm already starting to get an idea of how the blanket is going to look when it comes together. I'm hoping the wool shop I've been trying to get to for the last week is going to be open today as I really must get a bit more green for the balance of it. There are some squares I really love already! I think this blanket is going to be so beautiful :-D
Total number of squares to make-126 (63/63)
Brown edged granny squares-28 made. 35 to go!
Special Square Motifs-63 to go!
