April on my Instagram account featured a lot of crochet granny squares and for a good reason. Life has recently thrown our family a curve ball as my daughter’s scoliosis has reached a level that will require spinal surgery later this month. I have been madly making granny squares to finish my Random Granny Square Blanket so she will have something cosy and handmade to comfort her in hospital. While the fear of trusting a stranger to perform surgery on my daughter has been overwhelming at times, i still feel incredibly grateful for the health and happiness that all of my children exude. We never take that for granted.
I also spent some time in April just staring into the wide countryside that surrounds our home. Autumn is a magical time of the year, both at home and in Millthorpe. The pre sunset glow of golden hour makes everything feel okay again.
