Here is a new project that is calling my name!!


SANQ is a huge inspiration to me.  I almost always love something in this magazine.

I will be getting my supplies when my tax return comes.

A new update

I haven't been posting because I have been stitching.  I finished a exchange project (I don't want to put up a picture of it here until after the exchange), I made my first Granny Square baby blanket, and started a second Granny Square baby Blanket.  Phew!!

Here is the completed Granny Square baby blanket.

This is the Red Heart yarn.  It was so pretty, but I really like Caron much better.  So I am using Caron Simply Soft in Country Peach and Off White for the next blanket.  I have about half of the squares done. 

I am thinking about making some crafts and getting a table at a craft show in the Fall.  I could use some extra money for my homeschool.  I figured a couple baby blankets, and lots of small things like ornaments, coasters, and the like.  What do you suggest??

Finally!!! An Update

Ok.  I know that I am behind.  But here goes:

This is the Granny Squares for a baby blanket.  It is Red Heart White and Calliope.  Love this color!!  Just happened to see it at JoAnn's and got the last skeins.

Current cross stitch project.  Using Ivory Aida and DMC 498.  I like a darker red.  This pops on Ivory.

This is Granny A Day.  I know, there is only seven.  But I was busy over the weekend.  I think the baby Grannies count too.  LOL

My Margaret Jane sampler.  Not much of a start, but it is a start.

Have a wonderful day.

Gathering my supplies

I am getting ready to start working on Granny Squares for the Square a day.  I doubt I will get a square a day done, but I think it will be a great way to keep busy.  I plan to leave a hook and some yarn in the truck so I can do this while waiting for Rooster to get off work.

Here is a link to a great free pattern:  http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/free/granny_squares/f101005juliesgranny.shtml
