Covid-19 is still impacting us, and we continue to be in lockdown, but that could be changing next Monday but will see what really happens.
Mini Forget Me Not - here is the project that I worked on again this week. What I decided to try and do was to work on some larger sections of colour and see how much of it I could get done. I am liking the progress that I have been able to make and think I will be continuing to work up the side of the pattern for a while. I know that there is going to be a lot of sections that I need to do later but at least getting some larger sections done and some the areas that aren't as interesting does help some. There are some colours that when you are siting you can't see much of a difference so that doesn't help.
Socks - I continue to move a couple of my socks forward and that is making me happy as well. I don't have a lot of progress on either of the socks but at least they are slowly moving forward. I love having projects that I can pick up and work on while I am relaxing in the evening.
I hope everyone is staying safe and if you are in lockdown like we are you follow all the rules. If your area is opened up a bit please also remember to be extremely careful as we all would like to get back to doing the things that we did in the past.
This week I hope that you will find a bit of time each day to do the things that you love doing. It doesn't matter how much time you can find it is just important that you remember that you need to ensure that you take a bit of time for yourself each day.

I have been trying to work on some larger sections of colour so that it is easier to have spots where I can start and ends threads when I have the sections that only have a few stitches of one colour.
I decided that after my dad passed away that I was going to work on making a throw for my mom using some of his shirts. I felt that at least then she would have something to keep her warm, and it would also be a reminder of my dad. I have started this project and one thing I did realize that a lot of his shirts were plaid or versions of plaid. We have had some good laughs while going through all of his shirts looking at them and remembering. I am happy with the progress that I have made on this as I just started putting the motifs together yesterday, and now I am looking forward to seeing how many more that I can get done.
I continue to try and make progress on some of my other projects a bit at a time and now to see what this week is like. I hope everyone has a good week, and you find some time each day to do something that you enjoy. It doesn't matter how long you do one of your favourite things as long as you take that time for yourself. Hope the weather is good where you are, and you aren't dealing with lots of snow or other storms. Take care, and we will try and be back next week with some more progress on things.
