I was so happy yesterday, the temperature here was almost 70 and my granddaughter Amanda and I sat on the front porch swing and had an enjoyable talk. :hugs It was so nice and it isn't too often anymore that we get quality time. Her being a teenager with a boyfriend and always on the go... and not always wanting to spend time with "grandma". Anyway, we were talking about going for a long walk together today, but this morning it is raining and they are talking about freezing rain tonight and 4-8" of snow tomorrow. What happened to spring?

 

Cara - Your Gingham quilt looks really nice. You are doing a great job!

 

I know it is only Thursday, but here is a picture of 2 of my 3 Ohio Star squares. I still have the blue one packed away and haven't happened on the box yet.

Since I am doing it in different colors, I am assembling each square and then when I have enough squares done, I will decide which squares to put together for the best color combination. I am making this for a friend who really things colorful and figured she will enjoy it.

Good morning ladies :flower

 

Judi - Love that bright ghan! I bet that's a fun challenge to make an entire piece out of packages of squares made by different folks and never knowing what colors will appear :yes

 

Jackie - What a great idea using different colored squares! Can't wait to see it all together :cheer

 

Jap - Long time no see! Welcome back :manyheart

 

I was on crochet auto-pilot or something yesterday. Before I knew it I had another Roundabout block complete and 2 more strips on the Pretty Gingham. I haven't worked that fast in years :faint Paying for it a bit today though :blush Don't know if I'm really loving the greens for the gingham :no Today is my day out...may have to try finding some yellows....really had my heart set on yellow. I'm definately gonna try Rachel's idea of creams and a yellow. That one just might work :yes Brilliant!

 

Wishing everyone a great day :manyheart

Cara--Good luck with your outing! If you are successful I want to see a picture of the yarn you got!

 

Athba--Good luck with the wedding preparations. It's easy to get overwhelmed so try not to focus so much on all the details!

 

Judi and Jackie--Love the progress you've both made!

 

I'm plodding along on my second block. I would have gotten more done but took time out (45 min) to talk to my girlfriend who moved to Florida! Ooops. But it was worth it :)

Good Afternoon All! :manyheart

 

I am ashamed to say I haven't crocheted since noon time yesterday & I only did a few small pieces to a stuffed bunny yesterday. :eek I was exhausted that I wanted to do it but couldn't even lift myself up to get it. :lol Then this a.m. I had pre-school with Jaden. It is raining cats & dogs today so I hope to get more accomplished. I'm hoping to get to the store tonight to pick up colors for the pretty gingham.

 

Jap~Welcome Back! :)

 

Jackie~Those are beautiful & I love the different colors together, great idea. :cheer:clap

 

Cara~Good Luck finding that yellow. I hope to find some pretty colors for it myself. ;)

Cara, you're right about the challenge of putting together the colors - but it's been fun! The next one (nearly done) is being put together a little differently...I'm always experimenting! My Secret Pal even sent me more varigated bright squares today - just when I needed them!!:clap

Judi~Your latest ghan is very color & pretty. I love the square placement also. Great job! :clap:cheer:clap

 

 

I went & bought some yarn today since we're suppose to get 10-16" of snow tomorrow. :eek After 50's & 60 degree temps. all week, what is going on?? :think Geesh, I really hope they're yanking my chain & it doesn't drop a flake here but somehow I doubt it. Anyways, I couldn't decide on colors for my ghan so I got a couple combos. :lol I found yellow & after everyone talking about the yellows I couldn't help myself. They looked so cheery & pretty. I also went with purples, so i'll really have to get rolling here with some squares. :yes:hook

Hello Everybody, thank you for the warm welcome back!!! These lil squares have proven to be very addictive!!!! I can not stop myself either!!! And my lil guy thinks they are fun to play with. He says they are crabby patties! ha ha ha. The colors I was going to do for the Do Si Do, were Black, white and grey. But I decided instead of grey, i would use jeweltone fiesta by Redheart! Very pretty, and I have lots in my secret STASH!!!! It looks very striking up against the black and white yarn. As soon as I get a square completed I will give you a sneak peak picture. Until then, keep on crocheting and showing those beautiful photos of your work! Absolutely beautiful jobs done by all!!!! hugs jeni

Life is meant to be enjoyed:yes

Hi everyone! I wanted to post my pictures for foto Friday hehe. :) I've been working on this about 3 weeks I guess, off and on, but I haven't put a picture up yet. The first two pictures are the block with burgandy then navy squares. They're not joined, but I wanted to show you what kind of idea it is. I have a lot more squares made, but not enough of all the colors to put out more at a time. The third picture is a graph of what I'm going for, as this is a quilt square modified for crochet. I'm having so much fun with these! I'm going to give this to one of my sisters for Christmas. I'm making a few (hopefully) and will let them choose which they like best for their present. I know it's early to do this, but it'll take a while, so I'd better start early.

Thanks for looking!

Victoria

Good Morning!

 

Mary~I don't think the yellows I bought will work after all. :angry I bought two different brands of baby yarn in order to get a darker & lighter but they are two completely different weights, ugghhh. I knew that at the store but thought I could work it out. I'll just have to make a yellow baby ghan. :D I decided to use the purples for the baby gingham. :)

 

Cara~I love the cornmeal too, I have a couple skeins laying around waiting for me to use them. This is how I get stash. :lol Good Luck with all of your ghans.

 

Judi~I live south of Albany in Columbia County. Do you know where that is?? I can only hope the weatherman changed his mind & we'll get little to nothing. It would make great crochet weather if I wouldn't be forced to go sledding. :eek Kidddsssss, gotta love them. :manyheart

 

Wendy~It's almost spring, March 21st. Jack Frost doesn't seem to care that it's too close to spring to be cold & snow. GRRRR.........

 

Vickie~That is beautiful, good luck with it. :cheer
