:: Colorful Ripple Happiness ::

Good morning me darlins!!!!!

In one of my previous posts I mentioned how I got myself into a big mess by starting a ripple afghan.

Well, by now the mess is about 49" wide by about 43" in length!!!!
And I'm loving every minute of crocheting it. :). Mind you, I have other things that need to be done by a certain date, but this baby just keeps me going back for more.

The colors are all happy- make- me -smile-colors and the ripples never bore me. The best part is trying to figure out which color is next.

How big will it get? Well, let's just say I still have a whole lot of yarn left.

So for now, I'll put it down for a day or two, you know, obligations and responsibilities. :-/
It doesn't help that our weather has been above 100 for the past week.

Well, back to baby booties and fundraiser potholders.

Have a great rest of your day, and for those here in the states, enjoy this last long warm weather holiday weekend!!!!

Happy Labor Day!!!!!

:: Baby Booties for Deanne ::

Hello Darlins!!!!
One of my daughters friends requested baby booties for her best friend who will soon give birth to a baby girl.

So naturally I got on the ball, and I'm actually enjoying crocheting as many as I can before next week. I will also make a hat or two. And who knows what else I'll come up with!!!

Embellishing these little treasures will be even more fun.

Bye for now, and have a great evening. :)

Monday morning blahs :-/

So the wedding is over, everything was very pretty.

My big, loud, wonderful,  family all flew back to Chicago.  So here I am in my big empty house again.
  I have some nice wedding pics but am too lazy to post them right now. 

And my next crochet project will be potholders and kitchen goodies for Luli and Milla's school fundraiser.

So as soon as I pick myself up again, (I miss my family terribly) I will once again post pics of whatever I'm working on. But for now, I think I'll drive down to Mr. Blues, my local donut shop and spoil myself with a chocolate bar and a large coffee.  I can always work it off later.  Nothing like a chocolate drenched donut to make a girl feel better.

Bye for now, and have a fantastic rest of your day!!!!
