Crochet mood blanket

It's Monday again! How quickly is time going! Scary really! I have had a pretty busy week, preparing for a baby shower (will post soon), continuing to desperately finish the baby ripple blanket in time, trying new play group with William, family weekend time and...

 I actually went for a run lastnight! If you know me at all you will know I do not normally do this! But one of my goals for the year was to get more active. So when I heard about some ladies in our complex who want to meet up for walks and jogs I thought it was too good to pass up. We had a laugh, got hot and tired and had an hour without kids, some mums will do anything for some 'me' time! Ha ha. 

Anyway, here are a few pics of my blanket to date. Still pleased with it. I found some stitches on Pinterest so am going to give them a go next. 

I like that this blanket is making me learn and try new stitches. It is giving me ideas of other blankets I could make too using just a few of the stitches. 

I have not been in Dubai long but now that we are settled I considering taking custom orders for blankets. The postal service is not great here so would have to just stick to orders within Dubai to start with. All food for thought though!
