Hello my dear readers! How is your 2020 going so far? I thought I'd give you an update on how my 2nd Dune blanket is coming along for my granddaughter Paige. There will be 4 color repeats and I've just finished 2, so I'm half done! Yay! I just love how the pattern makes rows of sweet little shells.
This is one section of colors, the bottom is the sandy beach, then the ocean colors of aqua, then pinks and purples of a sunset then 4 shades of blue for the sky. :-)
I changed out some of the colors in Lucy's original color collection for this one. This is the whole thing so far, it will be twice this big with a border of two rows of shells. Today I'm going to start on my new Dahlia blanket as I want to see how it will look. But I'll still be working on this one too. Think I will? :-)
Our kitchen area rugs were getting old and ragged so we just got these new ones and I'm loving how they brighten up the space!
The flowers Dayle gifted me with are still doing beautifully! Look at this amazing Stargazer Lily bloom.
Part of eating healthier is making good choices when you go out lunch, we usually do that when running errands. I got this crab salad at Elmer's restaurant. It was DELISH!
I promised to show you the flowers on my Snake Plant aka Mother-in-law's Tongue plant and so here they are as of now. All the buds aren't open but I'd say 1/3 are. Neat, huh?
I'll make sure and take another photo when all the buds are open, that will be something.
I want to thank those of you who shared your environmental saving ideas in your comments on my last post. I've ordered 2 wool dryer balls and we'll not buy fabric softeners any longer, thanks Tonya! We also ordered an EcoBall for doing laundry and won't buy chemically loaded detergent any longer, thanks Michelle. I'm glad we're all thinking of ways to Reuse, Recyle and Repurpose!! And say no to more plastic.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
