I haven't made it any farther on that same old Fire Blanket, but for good reason. Yesterday, a girlfriend and I loaded the Munchkins and her little ones all up in her good old Jeep, and took off for the beach. Completely spontaneous, so much fun. The Munchkins loved playing in the water, even though it was still quite cold, and my friend E and I sat on a picnic bench with a cooler full of food and cold soda, just kicking back in the summer sun. All in all, it was a wonderful day, and we're definitely planning more day trips like this to happen on a regular basis. Summer is definitely here.
I also started another project. I've been following along with several blogger's latest obssession with doll quilts, and I believe I've caught the bug. I started a crocheted doll afghan with leftovers from the CCCD blankies, and I really like it so far. Doll afghans are small by nature, therefore perfect for summer crocheting, in my opinion. We'll just see how far I can go with this new inspiration.
