Brickyard and Corona Virus


Have made some headway on my current project.  This afghan named Brickyard.  You can see some are edged, some are connect.  I named it Brickyard because of the red and yellow bricks that the Indianapolis Race track had originally been made of.
I intended to blog after taking the first picture several days ago, but never got that far.  So since then, you can see further progress has been made.  The colors in the first photo are a bit more accurate.  Natural day light vs the light on in the evening in the 2nd picture.

I've not worked on my scarf now for quite awhile, but perhaps I'll work on it again after getting this afghan finished.  If you've visited my blog before you know I donate the afghans through my Charity Blog, Bridge and Beyond, that benefits the homeless.

I know we're all dealing with a lot of changes in our lives due to the Corona Virus.  Most of us are under stay at home orders.  There are only 11 states that have yet to join the rest of us.  I don't understand why they haven't.  To be successful it seems to me everyone needs to be on board.  

Thought this was food for thought.  There seem to be too many people who think somehow their are magically protected and fail to understand it's not just about them, but about their friends, their neighbors, their family, and perhaps people they don't know.  We really all need to fight this.

Thought this was cool, spotted it on Facebook the other day.


PLEASE, stay home and wash your hands.  Stay safe.  Do your part.

  1. LOVE that skittle analogy.
    We are indeed all in this together. World wide. When I dreamt of world unity this was not what I had in mind.
    Stay well, stay safe - and, as always, thank you for your support of the homeless.

  2. Dear Sandy
    The Brickyard afghan is coming together so well - you are so clever! Somebody will be so pleased to have it. I really like the skittles analogy too - people do need to realise that this is serious and they need to take all sensible precautions.
    Keep safe
    Best wishes

  4. Your blanket is coming along really well. No matter how many times you tell people what is best, they will only listen when rules are enforced. We saw that here in the UK, we'd all been told how better off we'd all be if we stayed home and yet we got some good weather and the beaches were packed. Now we're all on lockdown and we have to stay home.

  5. You are right. Everyone needs to be on board and that will be the problem. I think the US will suffer far greater from this virus than anyone else because of how we are structured (States have local power not the Federal government) and because Americans are pretty hard headed about some stuff.

  7. It's a wonderful thing for you to be donating your afghans to those in need.

    It sounds like both you and I are lucky that we live in states that have been a bit more proactive in their responses to Covid 19.
