Wow it's been a long time since I last posted! I haven't done much crochet or knitting this week. Just mostly reading. I did play around with the squares that DD wants me to make her an afghan out of. I was thinking of doing a plain black in between each daisy square, with one row of pink around the outside to join to the other squares. What do you think? Or would it look better to just do all daisys?

I am very much into making potholders and dishcloths, so this will be used up soon! Thanks again, Bron!

We have had a long lazy weekend so far, and plan to go see the movie "Stardust" tonight.
I haven't crocheted much this weekend, but I bought this new leaflet for making potholders, and I am thinking of starting a "fat bottom bag" out of the book "The Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller.

|Your Pirate Name Is...|
We went out of town this weekend to visit my ds, dd, and dgs. (Hence the reason for finding my Pirate name above). :)
DH and I went thrifting before we left town, and found this jewel:
Then, before we came back home yesterday, we went to a water park with our kids & grandson for the *very hot* afternoon, where we ran into some former co-workers, who caught me up on the "office gossip" from my former workplace. Very juicy, of course! :) All in all, a pretty good weekend!

Meet Playtime Chicken. She is made from the colorway "Playtime", with her wattle, comb and feathers out of "hot green", both by Sugar n Cream, and her pattern is from The Ultimate Book of Potholders. So far, she is my favorite color to date.

I only have to do about 5 more rows to finish this other baby blanket that I started last year:
It is a pattern from a leaflet by Terry Kimbrough called: Heirloom Afghans for Baby, shown
on the cover of the book and named "Exquisite".
One thing I HAVE managed to start AND finish recently: Another fish for the kitchen potholder animal farm, using the "cool breeze ombre" colorway by Sugar n Cream. I will probably be giving *some* of these away for gifts. Although the "selfish" part of me wants to keep them ALL! ........................................ Mwahahahahaha!
