Rugs, reading and blogging tears

By PaisleyJade - Monday, June 29, 2009

This post is a bit of a fruit salad post... a few different things to mention:

Firstly, this is the ugly giant granny square blanket I am making while feeling a bit under the weather! It totally clashes with everything and everyone in our house... and is already being fought over for a reading rug or t.v. blanket. It's very addictive to make, and I keep telling myself, "just one more round".
It totally reminds me of fruit salad... maybe it will be named the 'fruit salad rug'.

And speaking of reading, I have just finished an amazing novel by Anne Rice... review coming on Flannelgraph soon!

I have also just finished a short story written by fellow blogging friend Stephen (aka Jon Dylan). This guy is amazing... among other things, he writes his own music, cracks me up and also makes me think with his blog post, and writes very thought provoking and impacting short stories and essays. Equitable is the latest one I have just read... excellent! Check out his blog here.

And lastly, regarding blogging tears, my heart has gone out to a fellow blogger friend who has just lost her mum. Please keep Sew-funky and her family in your thoughts and prayers at this time.
