Due to how poorly he feels he is spending eight or more hours a day asleep or being sick. This has meant I haven't wanted to leave his side.
To pass this worrying time I have had him tucked up in his buggy next to me on the sofa and I have been quietly crocheting away next to him, working on a little project I have had in mind for ages.
In our front window we have a fairly wide ledge. We always end up sitting next to the window and putting our cups of tea on the ledge and it gets all grotty and tea-stained. Not nice. Also, all the candles we have up there burning have left marks. This has been bugging me for about six months, I am forever cleaning the ledge and it is never quite clean!
After thinking again, how much I can't stand it, I finally gave in. So the day before yesterday I decided I would measure the area in question and come up with a 'crochet window warmer' A kind of giant coaster to make the ledge more colourful and keep it clean. I chose some blues and greens to bring the outside in.
I got the measurements and began making my granny chain.
Then took it over to the window for a quick check - just to make sure it fit.
A bit wibbly, but ok so far.
And a few more rows..
Until eventually it was finished!
I took it over to the window and laid it all out, decided it could look a little happier really but that could also be because it is a horrible dull day.
I'm quite pleased with my funny little creation.
It's helped to cheer up a very boring old window.
