    2014 Stashbusting CAL

    Went shopping yesterday and came home with 22 skeins of yarn. So this week, I'm again in the negative with -44. I'm hoping to have some used this week so that I can knock a few of those points down. Gotta love adding to stash. Have a great day! We're in the 90's again today. Suppose to be that way for most of the week.

    Thanks ladies! I can usually crochet one block during the day and the next day I can cross-stitch on the block. If my kids don't need me to much. Thanks again. Have a great day!

    I'm starting the week with a -6, would have been more if I could have gotten my hands on more Petal Pink and white. Hopefully, I can get that later in the week. We shall see. Have a great day!

    2014 Any Afghan CAL

    I'm going to be joining you all this year. I have some afghans that need to get done, especially for Christmas gifts. I have 4 that I would like to see completed. Right now I'm working on Sunbonnet Sue for my daughter. I'm crocheting each block, then cross-stitching Sue and for the border of each block, I work a round of HDC and a round of DC. So far I have 8 blocks put together and 4 blocks ready to cross-stitch on. This post is going to have several pictures. I'm trying to make each block a different color, except the corners. Below is the first panel put together. Below is the second panel. Below is the first 2 panels put together. Happy Mother's Day!

    2014 Stashbusting CAL

    I've been crocheting almost daily. Seems everyone I know wants one of my hats, so I've been busy making a few of those. And also working on Christmas gifts, mainly an afghan for my daughter and a wall-hanging for my son. I know that next week I'll be in negative score as I need more yarn for work on my daughter's gift. I finished off a skein and a ball late last night. Here is my score for this week! WTD: +5 Hope all of you Mom's have a beautiful day tomorrow enjoy it! Happy Mother's Day!

    2014 Stashbusting CAL

    I haven't been around at all. We were having internet issues, finally got that resolved. I've been crocheting a lot of late. I know that I will be in the negative in the next week or so. I need more Petal Pink yarn to finish up this blanket I'm working on. And more white for a few more hats. I will update my counts but I won't count those towards this weeks total. I hope everyone is enjoying this hot weather, I'm not. We were at 86 degrees yesterday. Suppose to be 88 today. Hope all of you are having a great week!
