Today's the first day of our two weeks summer vacations, yippie! Actually it will rather be a working vacation, because we want to renovate the balcony and the bathroom and buy new furniture. So today we started our "vacations" with a trip to the DIY store and this afternoon John has already painted the wood panelling on the balcony. There's still a lot to do though, but maybe we can still go on a few days vacation to Austria - depending on how much time and money is left after the renovating :)
But now back to the Magic Blanket Ride - it's getting more and more colorful, look:
To tell you the truth, in the beginning I was a little worried, that the blanket might not turn out the way I had it in mind, but now I like it better every day!
It looks so happy with all those different colors, and there are still seven colors left that I haven't used yet!
Here are both sides in a direct comparison, I also love the way the dark side turns out:
Width: 1,50m (~59 in) (still the same)
Length: 42cm (~16.5 in)
Colored Stripes: 9
Days actually worked on the blanket: 13 (today was my first day off)
And now I've got to leave you for today - Thursday night is poker night :)
