and was inspired by that to try my own. I stayed up till the wee hours of the morning crocheting like crazy and watching episodes of Mad Men with my husband until it was finally finished. And I blocked it!!! Just like the instructions said to- which really amazed me. I still can't follow patterns, but I get the importance of blocking, and was very happy I did so.And my Mum loves it!!! Which made me happy.
It turned out nothing like the one that inspired me, but I was happy with creating it, and giving it.
Gratitude for today: I am on day two of a weeks leave, and am ridiculously happy being at home and spending time with my children and husband. Really, really enjoying it.
