Four seasons and a progress report

Hello Again!

Such strange weather we're having!!! Beautiful sunsets, gusty winds, rolling thunder, heavy rain and a sudden hail storm!!!
All in one single day!!!!!

It started with a really crisp, clear Autumn morning with not a cloud in sight.....

... the birds stayed a little later and the game, well, they also came just a little later than usual for a drink...(usually they dead on time)


The rest of the day was warm, lazy and windless,  'till early afternoon when suddenly and without the usual built up to a storm warnings....
... this monster came rolling in!!!  Just look at the sky above this monster, no real storm clouds!!! But it got D-a-r-k really quickly and we could actually hear the hail coming.....
... The sound was deafening!!! You can actually see the size of the hailstones in these photo's!!!  Luckily we suffered just a little wind damage, but this same storm caused huge damage and flash flooding elsewhere in the country!!! ...
....And about 2 hours later we were blessed with this incredible sunset!!! Unreal!!!!...
...You can still see some rain in the background....
...I think the moisture in the air washed....
...all the sunset colors together....
...to make these beautiful soft and washed....
                     ....  sunset colors....!!!!!!!!
         ... as if there hadn't been a storm with rain,                                                winds, hail or thunder!!!!!
....and that night it got really cold, not wintery cold, just crispy cold!!! Cold enough to grab a blanket....
And this is the reason for my progress report...
This blanket is making me so happy at the moment!!!!! It's so nice to cosy up in front of the telly and just work it....

I love the way the colors fit together......
...Soft, easy and flow-y....I love crocheting the blocks together into long strips of color....
   ...and then crocheting the strips together......
...and with a warm fuzzy feeling, you watch and feel your blanket grow...
...Slowly but surely!!!! But it's still a way to go!!!  For now though, I'm just loving this blanket!!!   And I love to look at it and think "I made it !!!!!!!!"

Are you loving what you're making?

See you again soon, dear Bloggy friends!!!
Love
