Do you remember my crochet squares? I've been working away on them on and off. These are the ones, Happy honed his grab and run act on. I suppose we both thought it funny, because otherwise I would have removed them from the coffee table.
The whole blanket is made up of 86 squares. I found the most delicious Jumbo Rainier Cherries! Don't they looks scrumptious amongst the squares? And they tasted as good as they looked. Of course now I've to think of those every time I look at the blanket. So here it will be named "Jumbo Rainier Cherries Blanket".
It's not quite done yet, but I'm close. I'm already working on the border. I'm liking it a lot...
I would have finished it already, but my arm hurts up to the ellbow. Crocheting is harder on my hands and arms than knitting is.
Of course it's not a proper post without a Happy story:
The picture has nothing to do with the story though. I just had to say Thank you! to Ulrike, who sent me this cute little Teddy Bear in Lederhosen with an Edelweiss on it! It's a genuine Steirerbua from Styria, Austria. The empty bedside next is filling up fast. I think the Steirerbua looks a little scared. He saw what Happy did to his cousin. (Don't you just love Happy's light brown eyes?)
Now to the actual story. Happy and I were up VERY early in the morning, a couple of days ago. I took him outside first thing, and while he played around in the hallway, I sat (cough) at the computer (cough), totally forgetting he was there. About an hour later I heard the bells I put on the doorknob jingle, and my first thought was, that Biko has come downstairs (which was nonsense, she gets up late). Then I saw my little snuggle bug sitting prettily in front of the door, waiting for the door magically to open, since HE rang the bells! He really had to go desperately, as it turned out. I can't tell you how proud I was at that moment, that he'd figured this one out so soon. :o)
