Children being bored!
Today I read in our city and state newspapers, a report from a learned educator. She said that it was actually good for children to be BORED and that parents don't need to constantly be their entertainers!
As an mother, early childhood educator, aunty and great-aunty, I have said this for a LONG time. What do you think?

Mistake in C2C graph afghan
I discovered a mistake waaaaaay back at the beginning. This is the British Flag and I have a white square that should have been blue.

Blankets from the center out.
I purchased a not so nice blanket, and from that blanket I made the one with the green edging, and the second one up to the last green stripe. Pretty good for a 50 cent purchase.

They are both 36 inches square.
