I had some questions about the afghan I’m crocheting. It’s from the book called Candy Blankets (all crochet) and the pattern is called Petal Pretty. I’m teaching my sister to crochet and this is the pattern she chose. Since it was also on my to do list I decided to make it too. The body of the afghan is half double crochet and I’m using two shades of pink for my afghan rather than white and pink like the one shown in the book.
Still working on this little crochet afghan. The body is simple but a border and some added flowers will dress it up a bit.
By the way, see my PJ’s in the photo? I stayed in them all day. How great is it to have a work day at home in my pajama’s?!
I try to complete 12 UFO’s each year and since I’m coming down to the last few days of 2013 with 2 left to complete, that’s my focus for the next 2-3 days.
One is halfway bound and the second is loaded on the longarm and I’ve started the quilting.
The kids left this morning and I volunteered at the library this afternoon but I did get one quilty thing done this evening…. I trimmed my November UFO and got it ready for binding tomorrow. Most of the time I crawl around on the floor to trim quilts and with the fractured ankle and aircast it would have been a bit of a challenge so I decided to wait until I was out of it. My ankle still feels a bit fragile and I’m being careful walking around in the snow and ice but I’m very happy to be out of the cast.
My goals for the end of the year … Bind two, quilt two. Keith is off through New Year’s Day so I’ll work around spending time with him but I should be able to find time to get these done.
Thanks for stopping by today and all year long.
Brunch this morning and then our traditional picnic by the fire for dinner.
I cooked, we ate …
Keith cleaned up …
And then Rae had her bath and went to bed so Santa could come.
I hope your holiday season is as much fun as mine.
I finished knitting Rae’s blanket. She’s using it for story time with Pop.
I’m the one who takes most of the photos in the family but today while we were waiting for Chris and Becky I passed the camera to Keith and asked him to snap one of me with Rae … 10 photos later and with me taking the camera from him twice to “show” him he finally got one decent one … Of course my favorite was the ONE I snapped of him.
Mom and Dad
She loved it and didn’t even mind the cold!
