A Good Day

Yesterday was a very good day. I finished this knee blanket for a birthday gift .I made it for an elderly gentleman who has spent 6 months in hospital . That is a big slice out of life .
He sent it back home because he has had several of his possessions stolen while in hospital. His shaver , his Roberts radio and his fan . He will use it when he eventually gets home.

Tis is his blanket parcelled and tied with crochet flowers ,

I also finished a bag I was making for bluebell .She bought the pattern a long time ago but could not quite get the instructions.
It has 4 similar sides with the handles tied at the top . The handles are pinned on , they need attaching with buttons .
I am making a colourful large bag for myself . I'd like to get that finished today .
I recently discovered King Cole knitting wool.
I am knitting cardies for the little ones . It is beautiful yarn and such a pleasure to use .
I'll show that later in the week.
In the garden daffodils to be lifted and snapdragons put in .
I'm off for a late coffee, a piece of seeded bread toast too.mmm

How shameful that people steal from the vulnerable. I know it goes on though, my son is a nurse and they have had the toaster and microwave stolen from their little room where they all take a break.
The bag is stunning and different, I love it.

What a cruel thing to do! I love King Cole yarn.
That bag is gorgeous!

That is a horrible feeling to think that one's possessions are not safe in hospital.
The blanket is lovely, very cosy.

Lovely afghan, how hateful that people steal from you in the hospital. Really like the bag.

How kind of you to make the blanket, a pity about the light fingered people.
Love the bag you made too.

Happy days.

I am sure the knee blanket will be well appreciated.

Love the purse.

how rotten to have things stolen whilst so poorly and in hospital. Do hope he is soon well enough to go home and enjoy the blanket

It's sad that items are stolen from patients in hospital. I hope your friend is able to move back home soon. Your blanket for him is so nice and it looks very warm. You bag is darling! You have fabulous flowers this year. Take care and enjoy the warmer weather. Barb O
