A small crochet finish

Good afternoon everyone.  I hope those of us celebrating Memorial Day weekend have a fun time.  Those of you who don't, I want to wish you a wonderful weekend as well.

I do have a small cross stitch finish, however, it needs "finishing" and I have been lazy.  I will try to get it done so I can post it.

I picked up this rug/polyester yarn at the thrift shop.  I decided to make my dog Buddy something to lay on.  He is always trying to eat my yarn and cross stitch floss.  I hope to keep him away from it.  Haha.

It isn't perfect but since it is for my dog I won't worry about that.  He looks happy.

I am going to concentrate on some cross stitch this weekend.  I hope I have something to show you next week.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend.

My Crochet Afghan finish

Good afternoon everyone.  I just couldn't contain my excitement and had to show you my finished afghan.  My neighbor Cari came over and we watched some of the North and South mini series that she had on DVD.  It allowed me to finish this to surprise my son when he comes home from school.

Thank you for looking.
Hugs,
Mary

A small finish

Good morning,

Can you believe that there is only 3-1/2 weeks left of school?  My boys are so excited for the break. 
It is going to be hard for me to get a lot of crafting done but I will try to sneak it in.

As a belated Mother's Day present I get to order a fluorescent lamp for the living room.  I have one in my bedroom by my stitching chair but when I want to hang out in the living room I don't have adequate lighting.  Can't wait to order it tomorrow.

Well I stitched this pansy and put it in a teacup.  I gave it to my friend Cari for a early birthday present.  She really loved it.

I am currently working on a chart for the monthly freebie challenge on 123stitch message board.  It is really fun.  I hope to finish it in a few days and I will post the finish.

Crochet:  I decided to add one more group of stitches to make it longer.  So I have a total of 6-1/2 stripes left plus the border.  I can't wait to finish and post a finish.

Knitting:  I am learning how to knit. I ordered some beautiful chunky yarn and bamboo needles as part on my Mother's Day gift. I have started on a simple knit stitch scarf. 

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
