Progress, but not finished.

Remember this project

Every Saturday I get together with a good friend and we crochet.  When we started this almost two months ago, she pulled out a granny square blanket, that she had started 25 years ago.  Seeing her working on her blanket and watching it come together has drawn me towards my own "six year blanket". 

At this point all the flowers are finished, and they are all attached to each other. 

I am finding the biggest challenge with this blanket is the shape of the flowers.  They are Pentagons, so attaching them together has created large gaps, but I think I have finally found the solution to this.  I am determined to finish this blanket!

That time of the year...

This is the time of year I hate, April 15th, taxes, deadlines, cranky accountants.....ugh!  As you can see the last post was on March 6th, this means I have been overworked and any free time is being devoted to chores at home, and rest.

About a month ago I did some cleaning out of my craft room, and when I did I came across a counted cross stitch kit my mother in law gave me.  It has been sitting unopened for a long time so I thought I would work on it here and there when I wanted to relax but keep my hands busy.

Will post this project periodically so show the progress...Can you guess what it might be?

Peace at the Poker Table

Every Friday night is Poker night at my house, and has been for the last five years.  As of late there has been a bad egg in the group that has created lots of drama.  Poker night is supposed to be a fun night.  It is not a place for getting picked on, yelled at or any negativity!

My husband asked me to create a sign for the shop/poker room.  He wanted it to say, "No getting mad at how others play cards."

This is my interpretation.
