It’s Been A Long Few Weeks

These past few weeks have been long for me. I have slept most of the past 2 weeks. If you don’t know I have the photosensitivity side effect of Lupus. if I am in the sun it makes me tired enough to take very long naps. It’s usually the morning sun that gets to me. It hasn’t been this bad in almost a year. It was especially bad last week when I went out at around 7am to do laundry & got home around 10. I slept all day & that night & most of the next day. There is more to it then sleeping. I’m just glad I slept through most of the other parts of what happens when i’m in the sun.

This has made it so I can’t read & do book reviews. Today is the first day I haven’t been out in the sun for a few days so I am hoping I can stay awake today. I got up & decided to try to stay up. So far so good. I have 3 books on netgalley.com to read & review. I will get to that. I feel bad because I like to read books & review them. It is fun. I haven’t even been able to read fanfiction. Before you mention it – yes I was up enough to knit. I told Grace I would make her gloves for her work & I thought it was more important then reading. They where sent off to her yesterday. I also haven’t posted the FO post I said I would do every other month. If I can stay up today I will get that out too. I don’t think I have many things to show but I will keep that up.

If you really want to know how bad it is I haven’t been able to play WOW much. I log on & just fall asleep at my desk. This is the longest I have been up where I could fall asleep & not fallen asleep.

Mom: If you read this I am still going places with you in the morning. I don’t mind. The only time I venture out in public is when I go with you. Even if I just sit in the car while you do your stuff I still want to go. And we need to do laundry still – just maybe not when they open.

The entire pattern – with pictures for free patterns are now available on the site here as well as in PDF from Ravelry. The link to purchase paid patterns are on one page with a link to ravelry to purchase right away. Link to the free and paid patterns is above in the navigation.

I have also made a page with retired patterns listed on it. They are patterns I no longer felt was worth my time updating or they got put in with another pattern.


All squares have been tested an updated to version 2. This does not include any of the potholders, hot pads, scrubbies, wearables, etc.

Important Pattern Update – Blooming Hearts

I felt it was important to post about my update of Blooming Hearts. It was horribly written. Here is a list of what has been updated.

  • bphdc was added to keep the petals from fall through the holes behind them.
  • Listed what CA, CB, & CC where on the square.
  • Properly named a st (fptrtr was really a fpdtr).
  • All rounds now have stitch counts.
  • round 2 had sts missing – they are now added.
  • Round 12 had a few things missing – they have been added.
  • Round 13 has had tapestry crochet added to it – you can always use 1 color if you prefer. Photos added as well as a list on how I changed the colors.
  • Round 11 & 14 have been totally rewritten.
  • Round 15 – 17 had counts wrong to a degree. I wanted the corners to be where the’leaves’ where. However no matter how many times I redid those rounds how I had them written it did not work so I moved a few stitches around and it worked how I wanted it to. The counts effected are the first few stitches at the beginning and end of the rounds.
  • Removed round 21 & 22. My square ends up being 12 after round 20. If yours doesn’t there are plenty of ways to add rounds or change the size of your square online.
  • Gauge has been added.

If you would like an updated pattern please contact me on Ravelry or here. If you contact me here make sure you add your Ravelry name so I can gift it to the correct person.
