Winter Project Link No. 2

At 5:50 a.m. this morning I was out on the balcony taking these pictures; watching as the sky went from grayish, to golden with the rising sun and then it turned to blue.  
The bottom picture is of this evening's sunset.  Still warm during the day right now, but the approaching winter season is when we get the most colorful skies.
I'm happy to report that I completed the baby blanket I posted about last month for Jennifer's Winter Project Link Party.  
And also finished a second one, both of which are being donated to The Palestine Committee of Kuwait that will be taking donations of winter warmth items to a refugee camp at the end of the month.  (I still have a week to work on donations so next up is scarves.)

Happy Tuesday!

I know how much you enjoy the cooler weather.. I'm happy it's coming for you. I am so impressed with that big granny baby blanket! I've never made one like that and yours inspires me. I'm still working on my shell blanket for a friends expected arrival before xmas. I plan to work on it this afternoon.. I've put it aside for 7 hats I've made for my granddaughters, grandsons, nephew and husband. But they're all set now! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Lovely blankets Tammy, I love how the first one has the same colours as the beautiful sunrise photo's you have taken. :) xx

Tammy - those look to be massive baby blankets. I am sure the recipients will be ecstatic to receive them. The color combo in the first one is pleasing to the eye; nice choices! Have a super week!

Dearest Tammy,
Happy to read that you have tackled two large projects of crochet work; look at you where you have ended already!
Being very proud of you because you are a self taught person in many ways and it all turns out so lovely.
We had a lovely dinner with our best friends on Saturday.
Tuesday's performance with the choir went very well and it was such a joy to do, even if I had practiced very little... could not concentrate.
But our friend urged us to get a 2ns opinion for Pieter and we did. On Monday I went with Pieter to see our primary care doctor for a referral and wishing a couple of hours we had an appointment with said cardiologist for Wednesday morning. I was so happy.
Turned out that after doing an echo and studying all the reports the future looks a lot better than what I had been told by that rude radiologist. Pieter only on Wednesday morning told me that he'd also had such a rude remark from said radiologist when he'd come out of the Operating Room and was put in his bed on the hallway, saying that there was nothing he could do for him... How awful that must have been for Pieter to hear! And later finding me so distraught because of the very bad verdict.
We both blame the PA from said cardiologist as Pieter has not seen the cardiologist in maybe 2.5 years, he let her do the work and obviously she's not up to it.
So happy that now we're on the right track, change of meds and hoping it will help. Sure the heart is very weak but there is still hope, when his lifestyle is adjusted accordingly. Biking only in flat areas, no hills and not heavy lifting e.g. yard work.
Sending you hugs and enjoy finishing your next project!
Mariette

Nice blankets! And the sky images look great.

Lovely and enchanting sunrise and sunset at your corner of the world Tammy! Thank you for sharing these photos with us! Images like those always lift my spirits up :)
The blanket is gorgeous and such a sweet gift! I wonder when I will finish mine???

Kit said...

I so love peeking into your world with your photos. Thank you! Your blankets are wonderful. I love the colors. I know a lot of folks are into quilts but I have always had a soft spot for afghans and any thing knitted or crocheted. Have a great weekend! :) Kit

I love the blankets and the sunrise/sunset photos. I've been slowly getting caught up on my blog reading and getting back into the swing of writing posts myself. That's certainly so good looking compost and I'm sure the plants love it.
Hugs,
Sharon

Dearest Tammy,
wonderful, those morning-and evening-views! And your baby-blankets are so nice and cosy - I hope they will warm the babies in the refugee camp and the hearts of their parents <3
So many hugs to you,
Traude

PS: How funny that you spoke with your husband about a cruise to Iceland! It's beautyful there, but you will need some warm cloths, too ;-))

Beautiful imagesof blue skies and blue blanket. I love the way the creamy yellow and apricot beige play up the deep blues. It makes me sad to think of the millions of people languishing in refugee camps all around the world. The human touch of a crocheted blanket is bound to be appreciated and treasured.

Savor these beautiful skies and remember them when you get those horrid dust storms. Lovely afghans and Bless you dear for your donating them for such a good cause. Crochet Bliss...<3
