A rest day

I usually stay pretty focused on my goals but I’m on track to meet the ones I set in March so I’ve given myself a break today. After not sleeping last night, I was up early and got my first COVID shot. I feel fine but just not in the mood to work when I got home so I read a while, took a very short nap, enjoyed the evening with Keith and after he went to bed, picked up the Afghan I started last night. I finished the blue blanket stitch Afghan but set it aside without weaving the ends in and immediately started a new one. Tomorrow, I’ll need to try and finish up the quilt on the longarm and I’ll get back to weaving those ends in soon, in the next few days.

  1. Yay for your first Covid shot! We have our first ones on 7 April. And thanks SO much for helping my sister get herself sorted out with WordPress. She really appreciated your help,. (And are you impressed that I can finally actually comment on your blog? turns out, I’d created a WordPress account ages ago, when I thought about trying to migrate my Blogger one. Came across the p/w to my WP account, and voila, here I am, able to comment!)

  2. Your day of rest is a busy day for lots of us. Glad you relaxed a little after the shot. So much accomplished this month . Since Florida is going to 40. Or over eligibility on Monday does Keith have an appointment? I have forgotten.

  3. Glad you got your first shot. I love your shell blanket. I made about 6 of these back in 1974, mine hade just two colors with a definite color arrangement. They were so pretty with the pastel colors and white. Hope Keith is doing better now.

  4. So glad you got your first shot and are doing well. Hope Keith is also on the mend from having shingles.
    Love the colors of this afghan… so soft and peaceful looking. Nice restful work.
    Take care!

  5. Everyone deserves a day of rest – mental and physical. Glad you are feeling fine after your Covid shot.
