Friday Funday!

Hello Friends,

This week has been super duper busy. I was planning to post early in the week and time just slipped away far too fast. First, I need to remind you about my giveaway. To enter the giveaway just post on a comment on my last post (here). I had to travel to Orlando, FL (yes, home to Disney World) for a conference and we had an surprise guest speaker, the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden.

I am here with three of my colleagues who have been a real treat both in travel and attending the conference together. Great food and great laughs over the last two days. We head back to Fort Myers tomorrow and hope to miss any rain from the tropical storm (if we are still calling it a storm).

Since I never showed you my final photos of the latest baby blanket, here they are:

I love this blanket and still love the pattern too. My mom wants a large one with all of the yarn colors so I have more of these in my future. I was much more careful about my zip zag connecting, so it is not uneven in places like my last one. I need to thank Angie again at Le Monde de Sucrette for this pattern and connecting method. This looks so great when it is complete, I just can't get enough (obviously!).
Hope you had a fabulous Friday,
xoxo Susan

  2. I bet Joe Biden was very fun to hear, he is a very interesting man, and as for Dr. Biden she is so passionate about education. i love the blanket and I am totally fascinated with the chain connecting the squares. Thanks for sharing the link.
    Happy weekend,

  3. Seems you had a great time in Orlando!!.
    I love the blanket you did, and this chain to join the squares for is really amazing. I'd never seen it before. I'll go for a look at Angie's place to learn!
    Happe week
