Sorry I have been missing a while…………..Fibromyalgia is unpredictable

I have been missing the daily interaction with my friends online.    As you know I have Fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions.   I have been pushing the limits for a while to see if I can increase my activities and my body movements.  I can do some tasks, some I cant and some I just have to keep trying.  

I found that my body started to resist and the pain increased tremendously so much so that I came to a halt.    It was difficult coping again and frustrating at not being able to get up and do my routine jobs.  My sleep patterns have been non existant, the pain to lay day on my back, hips or belly has been unbearable, so back to little but often as possible.  

Pace myself at this stage seems to be my best advise to be able to enjoy my life to the fullest and not to miss out on special days because I cant move at all.  

PROJECT UPDATE 012

Nannycheryl Blanket squares to start another bedspread

Will be finishing all projects started in September as quickly as possible to help me fingers started again, keep dropping things at the moment and finding it hard to hold crochet so started knitting for a while.

Starting knitting again for my new Barbie dolls

Starting small with nannycheryl………….continued

love making new blankets, I work a few squares, ideas, look for inspiration everywhere.   I have many books and troll through the internet and enjoy the thoughts flowing through.

I have started to make a tradition square, I then bordered with black, not unlike my others I hear you say, but this time I have made a few rounds of lace look crochet, I am not sure how it will come out but I shall add photos as I go.

I pick as many bright colours as I can they work with the dark ones well………..

 These are my 5 row squares which are multi coloured ready for border to be added

 I start my black borders making it look lacy  

These are the last pictures I left you with

I have make a square with the pattern I want to use………  this is just a model and will not be used as variations follow as I go along.   It really is make it up as you go, I start with a plan and then let my imagination take over, its fun

   On this model I have a block colour in centre, I later changed this to one colour one row until black border started

 

 

 

DSCF6878

I like the effect of the lace border look and feel it will look good when a few squares are joined……………….

DSCF6879

I joined them all together trying to make a nice join, when finished a small amount I checked and photo’s were taken, but I was not happy….

I went and had another look and decided that the lace border should be larger and the joining should be different, I have already done a few squares and will again join and look at my progress, hopefully I shall be happier this time, I do love the lace border though, just about getting it right………….. see you next time

DSCF6871

 

   I start with small rounds of colours I want to use I make many of these and put in box to use later,

 

 

 

 

I then make up larger rounds using main colours and making sure I have a even amount of rounds of specific colours which will dominate my creation

DSCF6875

This is the squares with three colours starting to look more like a blanket in the making………………….

 I decided to make these squares up of 5 rounds, I like odd numbers they seem to look better.

DSCF6876

these ones are four rounds will show further pictures when 5 rounds are finished.
