I was so so SO hoping be able to report that I had finished my 11 pattern repeats. But no, I am halfway through number 11. And I actually have 2 skeins left. If I can, I will be doing a 12th repeat as well. Especially seeing as the blanket is a touch small. Then on to the edging!
I made a big push this week, I want to get this done! So, there had been very little happening in the way of sewing or quilting or (ahem) cleaning. I have another baby gift to get started on too—I have not decided if it will be an afghan or a quilt.
Reading-wise, I managed to finish Beautiful Creatures, which had bogged me down. The story was good, but the writing not my still (too Victorian and stiff!). I then started and finished The Children of Willesden Lane within a 24-hour period. I thought it was good, but only if considered a young adult book—too simplistic for an adult book, but great for 10-year-olds, and with an appropriate vocabulary.
Now I am on to February (fiction). I really need soemthing good to happen in this book soon. I just started A History of the World in Six Glasses (nonfiction) today.
I also just cannot seem to kick the dregs of the 2-week cold I had 3 weeks ago, nor can the boys. We are just tired and still having sinus issues. Don't you just hate that?!
