Happy Weekend

Here is another scrappy potholder. I love making these with my scrap cotton. Each one gets its own unique look. :)

Here is the Purple afghan again. :) It sure has grown. I am now close to the halfway point on it. :)


Back to School

It's that time again! The kids are back to school. Today was their first day.
Kyra is a Freshman this year and Sean is a Junior. I can't believe that Kyra is starting High School.
Will be a busy year for both of them. Sean needs to work on scholarships this year.
And Kyra wants to join a couple of clubs at school. (Art club and the Pep club)
Then there will be softball coming up. I think I will be running around a lot......

Here is my latest project I am working on. It will be a solid purple afghan. I had a request from someone to make this one. :) I just love this purple color that she picked out.

And here is a project I finished  awhile ago. :) Some old fashioned potholders. I used up some of my scrap cotton to make these ones up.  I have plans to make more when I have enough scraps and time.

I hope that everyone had a great summer! I know that ours was busy with many different activities happening.


Hello Rainy Day!

It has been a cloudy and rainy day today. The rain has come off and on all day. A really nice day after all the high heat we have been dealing with. Was near 100 most of the week. Too hot to really be outside.

A recent project. Just a regular granny square afghan. Love making these from time to time.

I am making another one simular to this one. Only I am using grey and yellow in place of the pink/ mauve in this one.

 We have had a really hot summer so far. How about everyone else?


Stormy Friday

We had a pretty bad storm blow through last night. Ended up with us sitting in the hallway for awhile, away from all the windows.  Fortunately it passed by and we are all ok here. And today; it is storming all over again. All though so far just a normal thunderstorm. Nothing severe yet. Hoping with all this stormy weather we don't lose anymore trees. Was  really sad when the apple tree came down awhile ago. But we are glad to see that it is attempting to come back.

So with all the rain coming down outside...... I am working on this. A cute little baby dress. Sorry about the picture, but it is rather dark outside. It seems to be a really easy dress to make. I found the pattern on Ravelry. You can find the pattern here . This one is coming out bigger than I had hoped. So I think I will be making another one after this one is done. But I will be using a baby yarn instead. The pattern called for WW, aran or bulky and H or I hook. So, I think I will use an F or a G hook with the baby yarn. :)

This is a set of flower dishcloths I made a little while ago. They were super fast. :)  The pattern for this was one of those free tear off sheats at Micheals.

Hope everyone is having a great day :)
