It’s not usually like me to wait so long in between posts, but the week has seemed to just fly by. I haven’t had the energy to write or the time. I think summertime is just busier for me and probably for everyone. I’d rather be outside enjoying this wonderful heat and working on my tan!
I started working on my first afghan. The darn thing took forever to start, but I’m getting used to the pattern and it’s turning out lovely. It’s called a Vintage Ripple Fan Afghan and I found the pattern on Ravelry, but it was posted by one of my favorite crochet bloggers, Marinke Slump at A Creative Being. She is just so inspiring and makes beautiful works of art. She specializes in mandala patterns and I envy her for being so creative with them! They’re gorgeous. I’m pretty certain I won’t ever be able to make my own patterns just because I don’t have that type of mind, but I appreciate anyone who can make them. It’s quite a task.
Anyway, I’m glad to be working on my crochet bucket list. It will probably take me forever to finish it, but it’s something that will help me work on my skills and patience 🙂 I must work on patience! I have very little of it.
Summer has kept me busy. I’ve been enjoying going outdoors for walks and just being active in general. One a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst, my OCD symptoms are about a 3 or 5 at most. It’s been wonderful and I think much of it has to do with the amount of sunshine I’m getting. I just don’t get that in the winter.
So, that’s a bit of an update from me. I hope you all had a good weekend and are enjoying this weather if it’s been nice where you are 🙂
Thanks for reading!
