YOTA and thoughts and prayers

I have kept to my plan of spending a week on each project and managed to fit other things in as well.
This little hanging is for my friend who had a massive stroke last year.
She is trying valiantly to make progress, but it is very slow.
I wanted her to know that I am thinking and praying for her everyday, so made her this, so she could look at it and know how dear she is to me.

This is the design I have chosen for my YOTA.. and hope to make as much progress on it this next month as I have this..
This is where I was last month.....
 

 


 
 
And as you can see I have stitched 5 more squares, which I am very pleased with.
All my other projects have made progress too and I knitted the back of my cardigan, that I have had on the go for a while, so now only need to do the last sleeve. I think I can see that as my March finish.
Hope you are all keeping busy and happy in this brrrrr weather. At least to me it is stitching weather so I don't feel I have to do anything else.
Happy days!!
