Pretty excited I have so much to share with you this Friday for Finished Object Friday. Firstly cause I've not been able to blog as much of late with many things going on in the family. Many of you know my Dad was in the hospital, and his sister, my elderly aunt (91) had been moved from to a nursing home here in town from assisted living and hospital stays in Urbana and Springfield. Life's been busy. So, I've missed some FOF, WIPW, and YOP Sunday. Above is a finished object, this bright colored ghan is titled, "Rainbow Bright". It's made from donated crocheted squares through Bridge and Beyond, (thank you Cheryl S), for Project "Welcome Home". I crocheted 2 rows around each of the squares, joined them, crocheted another row around each strip, joined them and crocheted several more rows around the whole ghan before adding the decorative border.
Thank you all for the good wishes for my Dad. I'm happy to say, he's back home and doing well. My Aunt settled in nicely at the nursing home and things were going well for awhile. Sadly, that didn't last and she ended up back in the hospital (at least it was here in town this time). After a weeks stay in the hospital, I can say she's no longer in pain; she is now at peace and for that........we are very Thankful. Am hopeful life will slow down a bit, and get back to "normal".

Finished knitting this October cloth on a recent road trip to St. Louis to visit with DD., and therefore was able to give it to her. This is cloth 7 in the Cotton Cloth Calendar Challenge. Next up, need to work on November's cloth. **Editing to add name of pattern, and link for the October Cloth. Easy Squidge by Sasha. Click HERE
The Green Green Grass of home. You may remember seeing this scarf in the works. It's a scarf I started while spending time at the hospital with my Dad. It was donated to Bridge and Beyond.
