Blankie Crazy!!!!!

Ok Nesa surgery went fine still no differents with her veins. Right now they want to keep her on the liver transplanet list but, she's not in the top of the list due that she isn't in danger right now. So still have to keep doing her month injections to help keep her veins from bleeding. So hoping that all goes well like it did today. Glad to be home after I am done updating my blog I am off to sleep. Been at the hosptial since 6 am and I am tried.

But, this will be the last time you all see this blanket. Totally now done with Nesa blanket.

Here go Nesa at the hospital waiting to go to surgery. See look at how long this blanket is. This is how I wanted it to be able to fit the hosptial bed.


Here go Nesa after her surgery sleeping like a little baby. You only can see her hair she wasn't ready to get up yet, to the left is her dad just waiting her is little girl to wake up.:) awwww


So there you have it you got to see the finish project of this blanket. Thanks to all the lovely ladies that sent all the pretty squares to make this blanket for my baby girl.

For all the squares that was to big or I got after the 20th of July I will still use them to do Nesa a pillow to go with her blanket.:) Thanks ladies.

Now on to another project. A blogger friend of mines name Katrina had her 4th child a little girl by the name of Kalynn Jai, congrats Katrina. Well while I was waiting for some yarn that I got off of ebay to come hoping to get it before Katrina popped lol but, it was to late she popped before I got my yarn. One reason was because I wanted to make her new baby girl Kalynn something. T the time I didn't know what to make her baby girl but, after getting my yarn I had finally figured out to make her a little baby blanket. I went on Ravelry and a couple other websites to get inspired to figure out how I wanted the blanket done. So I figured out I will do this.

See so cute

No pattern followed sorry. I did get inspired by Mary Jane Merry Go Round Blanket, I think that is what it is called but, I didn't do it like that. I made folds in the blanket as it goes around I increased to have fold creses in the blanket. It took me awhile to figure out how to do this but, after awhile I got the hang of it and whipped it up in no time.

WOW didn't take long at all

Cute aint it.

Ok while due that blanket my sister just loved it and wanted me to do her a blanket. But, I didn't want to do the same blanket.

I remember looking around on Ravelry I noticed that the starghans was very well known. So I decided to do one but, my own way to the star. So here is how it looks so far not done yet.


I decided to do more of a 3D kind of star. Not done but, I made it so that this can also have folds but, higher up folds where that after I am done it will be pushed down and sewn into the blanket where it would look like a star inside of a star but, also on top of a star. Different huh?

Close up

Started on July 19
Took a brake on July 20, 21 and 22 Start back on 23th

Give you all another update when I am totally done with this.:)

I don't know if you all remember that I was trying to do a Sudoku blanket awhile ago. I gave up on it due to that I just didn't want to do it lol. But, I decided to give it a try again but, this time I am doing it totally different then before. Before I crochet the numbers in but, this time decided to stitch in the numbers. It save time for me I thought that would go quickier have to say I has went quick. To complete the whole unsolve Sudoku puzzle I need to do 36 white squares and 45 black squares. With black numbers on the white squaures and white numbers on the black squares with grey border around all the squares. Then I have to put them all together then work the outter part of the blanket in grey, blanket and white. So this will take some time but, have to say so far it has went quick see.

See so far got all the white squares done. I hope those numbers look right what you all think?


What I had plan after this blanket is due I wanted to post it on my blog as a contest. So for those that know how to play Sudoku or for those that want to give it a try you can solve my blanket and the first one that can solve the whole puzzle will get a gift box from me with some goodies in it. So for those that want to give it a try hoping to be done with this blanket by the middle of August keeping my fingers cross.:)

Ok no more crochet update sorry not sewing update haven't got back to my sewing yet. But, that's all for now my latest.
