Crochet Afgan

I started this Afghan in November, not sure when. It was going to be a small throw. LOL. Yes I passed that point rather quickly with 6 skeins of yarn. I'm not exactly sure how many, but at least 18 skeins later. Taadaa a couch length afghan appeared. It's called a "Drop in the Pond Afghan". It is a free pattern and has step by step videos to start and finish it. The vids are awesome. The pattern and the vids are....just unbelievable and the lady that did them is a GREAT teacher. She has lots out there. Need to know how to do a stitch, she can show you expertly!!!
YouTube ...search Bethintx1 or google drop in the pond. The pattern is on www.raverly.com.

Fall is on my Door

My mesh wreath looks great! Fall is definitely in the air. Weather is in the low 80's this week. It's my  time of the year. The cooler the better!!!!

Fall is in the Air

I made my former mother-in-law a couple wreaths this past weekend. One, of course, was for fall. The 2nd was more for everyday. She brought all the stuff with her except for a swag and couple picks with pumpkins. They came from Cary Carolina Pottery. It was the first time she visited me in a year. It was great to see her.
