My Latest Finished Afghan...For Me! ♥️


I finally got this finished up earlier in the week...

It needed a border...and I added PomPoms this time, instead of the tassels... 

I am really pleased with the way it turned out...One continuous Granny Square, changing colours whenever I felt like it. It is a great size for the couch, and I have been snuggling under it nearly every night!! 

It would be really nice if the Sun would shine!!

I can't remember...Oh I guess it was Friday early afternoon...haven't seen it since!

We are expecting a lot of rain this week, as our temps are back on the rise.

 



I whipped up this little cutie the other afternoon!!

No pattern..just a square sewn together...with the cutest pompoms... 

It is similar to the pink one Miss V has been wearing, but it kept falling over her eyes, as I made it a bit too long. I made the body of this one shorter....I have not seen her in this, but her Mom tells me that she loves it!! I'll bet she looks like a doll in it! 
 

Hope you are all well, and having a wonderful weekend...

I have another blanket on the go...something different this time!!

           Enjoy the rest of your day...

                      Cheers!  :o)

  2. That is so sweet, Linda--the afghan and the little hat. You have to get a picture of her in it though! I really need to learn to crochet and knit one of these days. I have always meant to do that. I would love to be able to do something like that. xo Diana

    1. Crochet is much easier than knitting...to me anyway!
      I am sure there are videos on YouTube, where you could pick it up!
      your grandkids would look great in some crocheted hats! hahaha!!

  3. Love the finished afghan Linda, you really inspire me to get cracking & learn to crochet. A little voice inside my head keeps reminding me to finish all my knitting/ sewing projects before embarking on another craft; so many things to make & only one pair of hands ha!!!

  15. I'm probably repeating myself, you're such a creative, talented lady. Nice to see you this a.m. You'll be so fit before you head down south. Just made a shepherd's pie to bring to my daughter's tomorrow. And chocolate chip cookies, of course. I'll wave at you as you finish your class tomorrow morning. Have fun.:)
