My Parched Inspiration

so it has been cold for the last one month or so,
but I am really glad the sun is out.
The last few months I have been feeling totally uninspired,
its like inspiration has walked out of the door.
I have been thinking a lot lately about my life so far and I have
come to a conclusion that I must stop thinking a lot about the future
all the time and start enjoying my present life that I have.
Enjoy the sun rise, the sunset, the walk in the grass as I admire the monkeys play.
Quite something
beyond everything i know that God has a purpose for me
and it is not to live an uninspired life.I speak life into my seemingly uninspired life.
I believe I am going through a phase ,everyone does, right? Where i feel like the world is closing down on me,and nothing seems to be working.I usually call it the dry spell.
so I have never done a post like this before.
Which is the a self encouragement post.
I hope I will encourage someone out there as I do the same to myself.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ  who strengthens  me.
Although nothing seems to be working right now, Christ will strengthen me through
everything that I am going through. The Bible continues to say in Isaiah 41:10
 So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
the fact that his right hand will uphold me gives me the strength to try it one more time.
I remember that nowadays before I leave the house in the morning ,I always pray that
God may guide me through the day and give me strength and victory in all I will
be handling through the day.
verse 18 of Isaiah says
I will make rivers flow on barren heights,
    and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water,
    and the parched ground into springs.
this encourages me mighty that rivers will flow and springs sprout, and
my desert will turn into  pools of water and my parched inspiration into springs.
May you be encouraged.

Color Blocking

Hi people, I hope you are well.
Its a new month full of new opportunities.
I already love the new month, but I think
its not new any more ,it being the 5th day ,right?
Anyway back to the topic of the day-colour blocking.
so it has been there for a while
 I believe its coming to diversify how we perceive colours
for instance a while back
it was deemed to be colour clashing if your outfit is not colour co-ordinated

photo from pinterest
ever thought of colour blocked I took a journey to look for some
photos  on the web -pin interest
 so this is what I found
photo from pinterest
 yellow and grey-stunning

these slippers are so cute.....
yellow and light blue or is it grey?
oh well this  colour combination is super

so in conclusion its possible to colour block crochet.
so I took up the challenge and make a blanket. Used black and red
I know its so common but I tried right?
put myself out there and came up with
this blanket

so I made huge granny squares and joined them.
 its been a long way coming but here we are ..
only the edges are remaining to finish it off.
so any ideas on what stitch I ought to use on the edges?
suggestions please ...:)
