Hi, Ladies. I think I will have this finished by tomorrow! We'll see how it goes.

 

Melannie ~ Please show us pictures! :)

 

Julie ~ Spring fever is definitely a problem for me, too! ;)

 

Jackie ~ Two blocks is wonderful :hook ... until this week, I was doing good to get part of a block done in a week.

Hi, everyone. Only being able to check in in the evening is the pitts. But the guy who is working on our home computer system is supposed to be coming over this weekend so I have my fingers crossed that the bedroom computer upstairs will be up and running by Monday.

I know it's not quite Friday, but I thought I'd get my progress documented now instead of late tomorrow night. I have finished the first block of my pinwheel quilt-ghan. It's for Kim, so I've included a picture of her with it.

My other accomplishment for the week is two preemie blankets and hats. The second preemie afghan is lavender with a light blue cap, but I can't seem to get it imported in the right size, so no picture.

I look forward to seeing everyone else's progress tomorrow night. Have a great day.

I was just wondering what size hook your using as your block is huge. Your preemie ghan looks wonderful as well.

:c9 Beautiful work, Linda!:clap

 

And Tabby, my DH knows about women being in charge and the stronger sex - he has confessed that if anything happened to me that he and the dogs would be laying out on the front lawn, dying:lol

 

When I had the cast on my wrist a few months ago and he had to do virtually EVERYTHING he was getting frazzled...it was beyond funny to watch his reactions...:rofl:laughroll

Hi and thank you everyone. :) I'm using a size H crochet hook to get squares that are 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 inches square. It's going to come out only slightly larger than the pattern says it will. The pattern is only 2 blocks wide by 3 blocks long. I am thinking that this one will be just 2 blocks by 2 blocks though, since it is for use in her chair instead of on a bed.:hook I look forward to seeing all your work later.:yes

Linda--Your afghan is lovely! And the colors are fantastic! I hear ya on altering the pattern. My pattern calls for 12 blocks...but I'm not sure I can endure that long!!!

 

I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures! Hopefully I'll have one soon too. I've got one more row on my first block in order to have a worthy accomplishment to show!

Hey guys, everything is looking great :clap

 

I won't have any pictures to share because I hardly crocheted at all this week; I was getting over a cold still, and I just wasn't in the mood. (I know, not in the mood?!?!?! I think I was just getting burned out by all my projects) Hopefully next week I'll be a lot better and I'll have a picture to share.

Evening ladies :D

 

Welcome to another episode of My Mouth Writes Checks My Body Can't Cash. If you'll remember in our last episode, I boasted that I would probably have 2 blocks to show this week. Alas, I had a little too much musem and big city lights and didn't get them stitched together :blush 90% of the squares are done, just not sewn together. Therefore today's episode will be pre-empted and, hopefully, shown tomorrow :yes Plus, my camera cord is still in the bags somewhere :think

 

 

Linda - I love that color scheme and I think the bigger blocks in 4x4 is a fantastic idea! That might actually suit that pattern more, imo :clap

 

Kathy - Wish I'd come up with that deco color scheme! I love it more and more with every row :manyheart

 

Mary - Oh my goodness that is absolutely gorgeous! You did a fantastic job :clap:woo:clap Now, you know what I'm gonna ask, right? May I pretty please use your photo on the site? I think I'd like to use the one with Zoe in it doing her Vanna White :lol I'm really impressed with how it came out. Great to see it as something other than a chart :yes
