Knitting Baby Blanket, Cross Stitching, and Reading On

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I had a great long weekend spending time with Liam for Valentine's. Day, setting up more furniture in our home, and chatting with family and my friend. It was back to work for me on Tuesday, and it has been busy. We got a lot of snow yesterday and I went out and did a bit of shoveling. I am grateful this winter that I don't have to drive to the office in bad weather. I like how my workplace handles bad weather, they always let us go home early to work from home or choose to work from home if we know in advance if there is a snowstorm. It is just nice not to have to go to the office at all during these Winter months. I am enjoying working from home and feel like I can do my job well at home. Which is a blessing during this time.

I am still knitting the baby blanket using the pattern Simple Lines Baby Blankets by Heather Tucker. I am liking how the blanket is turning out so far. I want to finish it for the beginning of March, so I have been knitting every day lately to make more progress.



I have finished more of the first part of the cross stich of the lettering of the I can't adult today cross stitch. I just need to do the t on the end of can't and the "today" part under adult in the middle. It has been fun so far learning this new skill and I have enjoyed the new challenge.



I am reading Didn't See That Coming by Rachel Hollis and Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg. I am really enjoying these books.  

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you are having a good week too. Some restrictions are lifting this week for Covid in the GTA, but not in Toronto yet. This virus and lockdown feels like it is never ending. I am hoping it starts getting better in the Summer months again like last year. Be safe!


Have a good day!
