Slow progress

I made another Colette Moneta, this time in teal, but haven't taken a picture of it yet. And I've made a little progress on the pink baby blanket, but I had to spend a few days untangling the ball of yarn I'm using. I would like to start a new cardigan for myself, but I'm having a hard time deciding what to do. I really had hoped to do more crafting during Spring Break, but it didn't turn out the way I planned. Oh well.

Projects don't grow unless you work on them

The past two weeks have been rough. I had to have emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder on March 1 and I'm still recovering from it. My birthday was on March 5, and it was my first birthday post-cancer diagnosis. I was grateful for the birthday and owned up to my 34 years. 
For my birthday, I got a new serger. I haven't really gotten a chance to try it out yet, but this week is Spring Break, so I'm hopeful that I will have some time (between the doctors appointments and the spring cleaning that desperately needs to happen at my house). I have a teal Moneta cut out that needs to be made up, so that should give the new serger a great warm-up. I may even write up a mini-review of it. 
I'm working on a crochet baby blanket for a friend at church, but I have discovered that it won't grow unless I actually work on it! It's a cute pattern that I bought through Ravelry that has some filet-type hearts on it. Can you see the pattern yet?
