Not Saying Much

It's still pretty quiet in my world at the moment. 
My Doc signed me off work and said to rest. Well, home alone all day I have no one to talk with but the cat, so resting my voice is easy.  But I can't sit and do nothing, so I've gotten on with some crafty pursuits. Jiffys blanket is growing. I laid it over my bed yesterday to ensure it was wide enough. And it is. I just need to make it a lot longer now.
 I am toying with the idea of setting in some more squares, not just yet, but nearer the top. I'll keep you posted on that, meanwhile, I shall keep going with the zigs and zags.

Yesterday I got on and put the other half of the carpenters wheel together. I was planning a coloured border, but now that I see it like this, I'm happy to stop. Just a narrow cream border then a scrappy binding I think.
Yes, I see the mistake and no, I'm not fixing it. It happened back in June, if you look here you can clearly see the same mistake.  I figure that if I didn't see it until the top was finished, then it is meant to be there.
(Belle thinks we can't see her)

Remember the viking hat? 
I was worried that it was rather small.
LOL I was right. 
I'll have to play about with the pattern and see if I can make it bigger.

And because I have two grand children, here's the the other one.
Floki and Faith. Such beautiful people. 
The loves of my life.

I'm off to have another quiet day.

I had to really look to find the mistake. You don’t notice it at all when it is placed to the bottom. I’m sure you will be able to crate a larger Viking hat without any trouble. Wow, look at Faith! She has grown so much. Such a little lady now.

Sounds like you do need a lot of rest and quiet. So pleased you have plenty to do at home. Lovely work on the blanket and the quilt top.
