Since I found out a baby is on the way this coming Spring, I wanted to see if I could remember how to crochet again. Because a new baby needs a blanket from grandma! So with some help from my niece, I got going again. It's been a fun diversion.
The yarn is really soft, just what you think it should be for a baby's blanket!
There may be a few mistakes, but at least I've gotten the rhythm of it again. I will need to get some more yarn this weekend. I got it at Michaels.
Then I've been working on the Tortoise and the Hare...
Here's where I left off last night. I always forget how much time it takes to do these Prairie Schooler charts. I guess I'm just impatient to get it done. I am thinking ahead to some Christmas ornaments that I want to do.... I haven't made final choices yet, but it's time to do some final choices.
Then besides the crocheting, the cross stitching, my niece and I each started a patchwork and appliqué square! Again, I was having to stretch out of my comfort zone.
We worked hard two evenings to get this far. The designer is Bonnie Sullivan from 'all through the night '.
So, that about catches you up on stitching projects around here!
But then I hosted our Rural Library Directors group at our library last Friday morning. That entails coffee and breakfast foods, and after the meeting taking them to a local restaurant for lunch! So, that is a full day since I finish off the day by working through the afternoon as well.
But, that wasn't the end of the entertaining! I hosted our stitching group at our house this past Monday evening. I made applesauce cake from scratch with my Mom's recipe for caramel frosting. It's perfect for Fall! We had a fun evening stitching together as always. We have a great group of women.
I better close for now. Hope you are all finding some quality stitching time!
