Granny Square Throw Finished, Still Feeling The Need For Grannies

Finished the little throw last night and guess what, still feeling the need for grannies. What next? I'm not sure what my next granny project will be, but granny something it will be.

Feeling The Need for Some Granny Squares

Love Grannies. So many possibilities. That said...feeling the need to make a throw, something I can accomplish before I get the urge to move on to something else (which I always do and speaking of that...I need to create a new pattern).

Make the squares

keep making squares (really there are 25 for this little throw)

join squares and start edging

orange done, on aqua

still need, green, turquoise and brown before this little blanket is finished

This Week's Makings

Well...I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, but I did make a few things (of course I did). Some of the things I was working on didn't make the cut, but a few have.

love all my Hero Arts stamps, great to watercolor

sweet crocheted doilies help make these tags special

Some cards and tags

makings of a owl banner

Love the way these turned out. Carnation potholder, dishcloth & fridgie

Three Toed Sloth

My daughter showed me a You Tube video with Kristen Bell on Ellen and I couldn't stop laughing. Adorable. So, of course my next softie had to be a sloth. Mine is a three toed, but two toed are just as cute. 

Oh and here is a link to the You Tube Video if you want a chuckle

Indiana for the Weekend

Heading to Indiana tomorrow for a visit and some quiet. When I say quiet I mean it. Back Monday with a new pattern idea in the making. Have a great weekend.

On My Knitting Needles This Week

I always have several projects going on at once. Sometimes I wish I was one of those "get it done, before you start something new" kind of people, but I've learned I need to change it up or it won't get done at all.

Baby, by Claire Garland-Knitbabes

awesome frog by Alan Dart-look at those feet

What's New In April

What's new here...

dining room set with fun parson's chairs

summertime cut for Stewart
things are blooming

new birks and Walter's gray hair (sorry silver)

it's a treasure-State Street Market find-old pencil sharpener
pretty vintage crochet potholder-yes, I finished it and if it wasn't so pretty I might use it
great chippy distressed orange and teal candle holders-oh and a sweet prim bunny

Look what she made

I love them. A great Etsy customer shared her pictures with me. Thanks Lorraine

Black and White...Penguin Time

I know Penguins tend to hang out more during those Winter months, but I was in a black and white sort of mood. I think penguins can hang around all year. What do you think?
