Miles of Ripples

Virginia really outdid herself this year for Valentine’s Day. Her gift to me was an afghan suitable to someone my height.

This lovely blanket measures a generous 80 inches long by 60 inches wide, or in her words “really freakin’ long.” I can securely wrap myself (and feet!) in all of its wooly goodness.

Crocheted using 13 different colors of Cascade 220, she used Attic24’s Neat Ripple Pattern as inspiration.

Speaking of inspiration, I thought I’d share a photo that I took this morning of some spring cleaning in action (to help spur us on):

Clean Curtains

With last year’s chaos, and almost spending as much time at the hospital as we did at home, we’ve finally gotten around to cleaning our windows. It’s truly astounding how much crud can accumulate in only a year’s (or two) time. Of course, clean windows need clean curtains.

There’s a bright, sunny spring day ahead of us. So, off the computer and on to brightening up the house. Oh, happy spring!
