Broken Ankles & Baby Blankets



I haven't been online much the past couple days because I have been busy on a few things. First off Sunday night Seth injured himself playing basketball. He was in a lot of pain when he got home but was sure he could make it through the night and go to the doctor on Monday instead of going to the ER. So we iced his ankle up, which had swollen pretty big. Then yesterday we got in to the doctor and they took xrays of his ankle. Turns out he has a chip fracture so they gave him this boot so he could walk around. Let me tell you, Seth is hard to keep up with with that on. I keep telling him I will help him out, get things for him, etc but he insists he can do it all himself. So he was up & down, up & down all day yesterday. Stressing me out! I want him to sit and rest up and he is always wanting to move around. Silly!

I started on a baby blanket that Seth's uncle asked me to make for his grand daughter. I am using a "bubble-like" stitch (I don't know what it is really called haha! :) ) which I think is turning out so pretty! I am about 1/3 to 1/4 finished with it. It is the perfect movie watching project!
