a few spring finishes

Good afternoon everybody.  Sorry it has been a few weeks since my last post.  I slowed down on my stitching but it is now full speed ahead.  I finished this freebie from The Sisterhood called Spring.  I also finished the biscornu and put some cute egg buttons in the center.

Here is my handsome son Brentley modeling off a scarf I crochet him.  The yarn is soft but a little too chunky.  It is too heavy for him to wear right now.  At least he really likes it.

Today my wonderful neighbor Yvonne taught my friend Cari and I how to crochet a granny square.  I will post a finish once I complete the edge.  I am also working on a Blanket for my son Brentley.  On the cross stitching side,  I am rotating a Ink Circles ornament and the Novalee SAL from christmas.  Hope to get them done soon.  Will post some pictures next time (when I have more to show).

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.

An ornament finish

Hi everyone,  Hope you are having a great day.  I am getting ready to go on vacation to visit family in Florida.  My husband is taking a few days off from work to stay home with the kids.  I just hope with all this bad weather, my flight wont be cancelled; keep your fingers crossed.

Anyway, I have 2 finished projects to show you.  The first is an ornament I made yesterday to hang on my ornament tree.  It is from Blueladie Designs Jan 2013 newsletter. The beads were from a broken Mardi Gras necklace.  This has to be one of my favorite smalls, I guess because I love green.

The second is another crochet scarf.  I love this chunky yarn but it makes things really heavy.  This scarf weighs alot, but it is very soft.  I used Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Black and Las Vegas Gold.  My son loves it and puts it near his New Orleans Saints helmet in his room. 

I think it is really sweet.  I am sure if it snows he will use it then.

Well I hope you guys have a wonderful week.

Small Valentine's Pillow Finish

Good afternoon everyone.  I just finished stitching and finishing this pillow on Monday. It is from the Blueladie Design newsletter.  I love how this little pillow turned out.

I also got done stitching the one from her January newsletter.  I will try to finish it next week for my St. Patricks basket.  Been kind of slow lately but I am crocheting my son a scarf and I am over 1/2 way done. 

Well that is all for now.  I hope you have a great weekend.
