Over Indulging: Part I

Yes, I am confessing my over spending to everyone. And I must confess that I loved every minute of it.


 I found this beautiful bowl at Michael's at quite a good price and I just had to purchase it.

  
Over the weekend, my husband and I visited a local Russian store. I love Russian candy and couldn't refuse myself a few morsels. It is quite pricey, but well worth it, occasionally.


 Well, I had to purchase a couple crochet books at our local craft store. After all, I was over indulging.


 And yes, there is a Part II to my over indulging. As soon, as I can figure out how I am going to take the pictures, I will post.


Thank You for Visiting!

Thank you, Debi!

Forever Learning:


My blog is still  very new to me or I should say that I am still so very new to my blog. I just discovered how to add pictures of my afghans to the  side bars.  I also discovered  how to link them back to my blog. So, if you click on any image to the right of my blog  under the heading "Photo Gallery", it will take you directly to it's link on my blog. I just love it when I learn something new. Makes me feel good!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Progress Underway: Sunburst Granny Squares!

I just could not resist posting my progress on these lovely squares. I must admit, it is taking  longer than expected to finish this project. With three more rows waiting to be connected, a few more squares to make, some loose ends to tie, and a lovely border to add: I will finally be able to say TA DA! I know it's not the next post I promised, but I just couldn't resist!

Treasures From the Heart:

 I named this post, Treasures From the Heart, because  these boxes hold another  passion which comes from my heart. I would like to open my boxes and share them with you. My  hope is that  you will enjoy these hidden treasures as much as I do!

More Ripples:

Pumpkin Patch is what I called this one!

 Pinocchio is what I called this one!

Last year we had an exchange student from Germany who came to live with us for 10 months. I made these two afghans for her as gifts. I chose a simple ripple pattern, took three strands of yarn for the Pumpkin Patch afghan, and two strands for the Pinocchio afghan. By doing so, I created my own designs. Enjoy! Any ripple pattern will do.This is an older post that I am re posting because you couldn't see the second afghan in my former post without clicking on read more.  I wasn't pleased with how the post was initially set up, so I re posted it.

STAR BURST GRANNY SQUARES:

These squares have also been on my crochet hook for quite some time now. I have already made 80 squares and have 20 more to go. It's count down time for these precious squares. I can't wait until it is all finished, so I can post a picture of the afghan.It has been such a wonderful way to get rid of scrap thread. I probably have enough thread to made 1,000 or more squares.

 New Projects!


This is what's on my sewing machine!  It's a project which I started last year, think it's time to finish it. This is another one of my favorite pastimes.




 I have so many quilts in my craft room waiting to be quilted. So, I guess it's time for me to get busy and quilt them.
