Hello October!!

Wow, almost a month went by without a word from me, huh? Must have been super busy. I was so busy and stressed out that last weekend I ended up in the hospital, UGH! I am okay though, but am in the process of making serious lifestyle changes now. Turns out I was having little TIA's which are like little mini strokes that cause no damage but are big warning signs that a big stroke is coming. I have quit smoking now, am on blood pressure meds and cholesterol meds as well. Fun times here at Aunt Weens. Really though I am okay, finally getting this blood pressure thing under control and the quit smoking was not really hard at all, which amazes me.

Anyways, onto crafty news, as you can see below, another hat with ear flaps was knitted up this last month. Here is my good friend, Captain Jack, and his new hat for the winter. It was his birthday last Monday but he got his hat a little earlier.

I also made this quilt for him, got it finished today and it is now in the washer. Before washing it measured 50" x 71", so a good size for a throw I think. I don't know why, but I kept procratinating on getting this one done, probably because of the aforementioned medical issue maybe? And I just thought I was being lazy and tired all the time.
Can't wait to see how it crinkles up!! This is a close up of it before it went into the washer. Will post later about the results.

The weather here is cooler and windy today. I think winter is going to be here before we know. I better get busy on hand washing all those hats I made last winter. For now, keep on crafting my friends.
