Wow, gorgeous afghan, Kristina! Love those colors!
Working on crocheting a case for an iPad today. Got distracted from my granny square a day project, lol...but I'll be crocheting clear thru the game tonight, so I'm sure I'll catch up!

Hi Lainy Lou - I am glad you like my boxes. I am working on another picture and there are pics on my blog of it in process if you haven't looked at them yet. Everyone's work is so beautiful and I really enjoy seeing it.

Blessings, Sheri

Thank you all for your kind comments on the blanket. It's going camping with us this spring or for late fall camping.

I am digging out my tatted hankie today. I started it a year ago, and barely made a dent in it. I'll have to learn tatting all over again, but will give it a whirl this week.....along with other projects.

Today is "cleaning" day so I better get off here and go get my laundry on the clothesline...and clean the master bathroom....and vacuum....water the plants.....dust....

Thank you Jennifer!

I'm crocheting a smaller lap blanket now, for a Christmas present, amongst many, many other projects.

Woo-hoo! I finished the Mister's embroidered handkerchiefs. Now I just have to wait until I give them to him so I can take pictures.

I've been working on the St. Patrick's Day ATC swap. My son saw the first 2 I did and asked if I would make him one. How could I refuse??? He asked for a picture of him and his green house on it. :)The circles at the top are our house number. He was pretty excited about it. I think I will make an ATC folder for him with some cards depicting things that go on during the year.

Kim I like you idea. I keep a little book of all the ATCs I make for the year. I keep a big book of all the ATCs I get from the swap. I love looking at them all. They are so creative. Right now I am working on the apron for the apron swap. I just finished 2 Dotee dolls for friends. One just had an operation and one has a birthday. I will post pictures tomorrow. Have my sewing group today so have to rush off.

Hi farmsisters, Today I trying to work on a Mixer cover. It is a large one, for a kitchen aid stand mixer for a friend. I will put a pocket on it for a Cook book. I made her one about 10 years ago and she says finally she needs another one. What is going on in your world. Needy, Farmsister #1020

thanks so much ladies, i am feeling so great and i really think getting back to my crafting has helped so much.
and also come back here. my cancer diagnosis was about 3 years ago, and i got so tired of it sometimes, i was just sick and tired of being sick and tired.
i finally feel that i am on the journey back to health.
i am so dingy, peg , but i thought you lived in texas.
also kim what part of texas are you in?
thanks so much for responding to my post!

love

Kim, cute piece for a swap
Frannie, love the pin cushions and apron!

Today we cut wood, baked pumpkin muffins and did laundry. I hope to get some crocheting done later tonight.

Hi Frannie, Glad you're feeling better. Creating things seems to help during recovery. I did a lot of cross stitch and hand stitching in general when I broke my leg several years ago.

I'm just north of Houston in Humble area.

I SO have to get some pictures posted! Last night I finished the hat I was making (the Mister is thrilled because he wants to take me out for Valentine's Day). The glue should be dry by the time I get home from work, and then I can photograph it.
