A small finish, and 2 WIPS

Good afternoon everyone,
Are you happy it is the weekend?  I hope you had a great week.  Last week was Spring break for the kids so I didn't get a lot of crafting done.  It was nice to have them home.  This week was great to get back into my routine. 

I finished this pillow.  It is a freebie from Mosey n' Me.  I have decided to participate in the Monthly freebie challenge on the 123 Stitch! message board.  This was picked for the April challenge.  I love making pillows they are so fun and look great in my basket.

I used some hand-dyed Lugana from Sassy's Fabby and some varigated thread, beads and buttons.  My son wants it and while I am flattered, if falls on the ground and my dogs decide to destroy them.  It hurts too much so I had to tell him no. 

But, I am crocheting him this blanket.  This is my first big crochet project and it is going very smoothly.  He really likes it and wants to use it now,  but it isn't long enough.  So I am trying to concentrate on this.



 

It is zigzag gold, burgandy, lime green, navy, red and black.

I am also trying to finish this project from Christmas.  I will get it done, I will get it done.  I love seasonal stitching and I love Christmas just not stitching Christmas.  I love Halloween, Valentines Day and Easter stitching the best.

Well that is all for now.  Thanks for looking.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :) I still have 3 or 4 teacups not shown because they didn't fit on my shelf :( They're all china cups made in Japan and England.

    I really like your Christmas sampler. It's really cute!
