my granny square afghan


Here is my small granny square afghan finish, it's going to be a gift to one of my sister-n-laws' for Christmas. I made it with leftover yarn from other projects, mostly red heart and some I Love This Yarn from hobby lobby. It was really easy and fun to do, especially picking out the colors. I could not help but try to match them up in color families. It's the x-stitcher in me, must have some semblance of pattern/and or order in my projects! It's not very big, more of a lapghan but just the right size for a person and a kitty to snuggle up in!

dark cherry update

Here she is, almost 2 pages down. lol, 4 to go. I've decided not to join next years freebie sal on the haed bb, I'm so far behind on this one. And I need to get some ink for hubby's printer-somebody used it all (not me, no way, nuh uh, wasn't me!) so I can print the next 4 pages out or I'll never finish! Sorry the pic is so dark. It is dreary and cold here today, I guess the beautiful Indian summer we were having is over. Oh well, knew it was coming, one can't stop the season's from doing their thing~;0)

Happy Friday!

Yayy! It's Friday and hubby has the weekend off, double yayy!! He's the man, let me tell you, my computer went kablooy last week. It was baaaad. Apparantly my antivirus software was, well, nowhere to be found. lol, how that happened I just don't know. Anyways, he completely redid my computer and, icing on the cake, got us Cricket wireless internet! Wahoo! No more crawling along with dial-up! I can see all the lovely pics on everyone's blogs without refreshing the pages over and over, it's awesome! And boy do all you stitcher's have some of the most beautiful finishing techniques. I am inspired to get busy and try out new and interesting ways to finish things off. Must go shopping! lol I need fabric, and trim, and buttons and ribbons and....the list goes on! lol
Well I'm off to blog-hop, later! ;0)
