What I haven't had time to do today is look into photo editing/sizing as suggested by Susan. I think I need a week off to be able to wrap my little pea brain around that issue, so we will just have to look at pictures that are a little bit wonky until then :-)
As you can see, I have manged to get two more blocks done and one cut out ready to work on. I am a tad bit behind schedule so I need to finish two more blocks by Sunday to catch up. I need to finish my grandbaby's Alphabet book by April 12th in order to get it in the mail in time for her birthday. I long for more time to complete all of the gifts I want to send her for her big day - but alas, I work until 4:00 pm - 5 days out of the week so it doesn't give me much down time to work on things.
I have finally finished the edging on one of my pillowcases that I cross-stitched and showed you earlier. When I get tired of working on blanket stitches, I take a break and pick something else up. It has taken me awhile to finish this because being fairly new at crochet and self taught, I sometimes find the patterns overwhelming. I had to take out two rows and start over - I found an easier pattern online and I can call this one done! I am currently in the process of completing the cross stitch on the other pillowcase to make it a matching set. I won't completely call this project done until they are both finished!
During my blof surfing one morning I happened across Dawn's blog. She has been making the cutest little valentine hearts - as you will see if you look at her header and this post. I now realize that if I start my spring craft projects in the winter, and my winter projects in the Spring, that I just may have something to show for it with my work schedule the way it is! Nevertheless, I just couldn't resist trying to make one to tie onto my granddaughter's valentine gift. It is my first attempt, but I am hooked - and hope to make more next year when I have more time.
This is the cheater way to make Yo Yo's. I can't remember what blog I read about these on, but this tool is so easy even a five year old could use it! I am planning eventually to make a Yo Yo quilt (one of my many dreams - I have so many- it would take three lifetimes to finish them all)This is a craft that you could sit and do while watching television. Great little tool!
