Crochet blanket

Here’s my update on the crochet blanket. I have been working on this since early this year. I am using a single crochet stitch.

I wish I made it just a little bit wider. But it’s looking good. I don’t feel I’m the best at crochet. But my stitches are getting more precise as I practice.

A Little Update

I have been taking my time with this blanket. I am using a single crochet stitch in three colors. I chose these colors because they will blend in with my decor in my bedroom.

I haven’t been writing much on this blog because I have been busy balancing work and exercising and just trying to take care of myself.

I’ve been diagnosed with lymphedema and lipedema and heaven trying to incorporate more exercises for my lymphatic system. So my exercise usually takes 30 minutes to 40 minutes in the morning as well in the evening. So I have not had much time to be creative in my art journal. But I have been able to finish an oil painting that I posted on my YouTube channel. But it did take me longer to paint it than I expected.


Here’s the latest YouTube video please like and subscribe as it helps me to continue showing my art process and anything creative that I’ve been doing.

I have every intention to blog more often but I lose track of time with work and exercising and other things I need to do. But that’s a little update on what’s going on in my life and an update on my artwork and my stitching.

It’s Been Hard Lately

I’m exhausted, my legs are swollen, they look like elephant legs and I’m in pain.

It’s all because I have an autoimmune illness, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have had this since I was 2 years old.

The lymphedema and lipedema was diagnosed last year.

So I’m sitting on my sofa, watching a comedy show ready to fall asleep at 5:40pm. I had a late lunch. It was delicious, mushroom stroganoff and green beans.

Anyway, I’m just relaxing and decided to crochet my blanket tonight.

I really should do some art examples for my art therapy practice. But I don’t feel like putting my legs down.

Here’s what I have done

Crochet blanket

I closed my Etsy shop recently. I might be back later this year to reopen it. I have to figure out my counseling practice and I need to work more. Things are just too expensive right now. Everyone is feeling it. We will get through it because we have to.
