Happy Mother's Day...


Filet crochet
 I hope you all are having a wonderful Mother's day. Mine has been quiet but I did hear from both kids and got chocolate from Hubby so I'm happy. I've been learning Filet Crochet. It is so much easier then I thought it would be. Doing a wall hanging that says Home Sweet Home, I'm just now starting on the word sweet.  It takes awhile because I'm not fast but it is relaxing to work on.
Mini sal
 I am also doing the new Lakeside Needlecraft & Durene Jones SAL you can find the group by clicking on the name if you would like to join in. They just released the border part.

Sunflower

Made a crochet sunflower, need to finish the other flower I'm making also, didn't think it would end up this big though. I do like it.
Cheap Thrills part 2
Still working on Cheap Thrills and Moonshine BOM's.
I also started working again on my oldest wip my Fall afghan. One day I will finish it.

Oh and I'm going to be a grandmum again sometime in late Sept or early October. So another baby blanket to make soon. Well that is all for now. Hope you have a Blessed week!

It's already March...

Moonshine step 4
 Last month just flew by, was really busy getting some of my UFO's part way done. Working on Moonshine Bom got part 4 ready to sew, all 96 parts of it. Taking my time and sewing when I can as the weather has been raining a bunch and my hip and RA has not been good.
Santa Village
 I'm also getting some done on Santa Village hope to have this first chart done by the end of March. I got a "To Do" list with dates that is helping my rotation of crafts I want to work on.
Lily pond step 2
 Almost done with part 2 of Lily Pond the yarn and colors of this one are so nice to work with. First time I've used Stylecraft DK. I really love it. Would love to get more someday.
Cheap Thrills Bom step1
 Also started an new BOM Cheap Thrills by Sharon Blackmore in our PQM Group. I hope I can keep up with this one and not let it become a UFO like the others she has done. Still need to finish Plenty of Fish and MLV BOM's.
St. Patrick's Day Hat Cal step 1
 A new mini cal by Snappy Tot's for St. Patrick's day. I got part one done doing it in Green and orange I think. I may add a bit of black to it also.
PQM Solid Swap fabrics?
Picked out my fabrics for a new swap at PQM. You can only use solids and I don't have to many but luckily what I do have is the right colors my partner likes :-) I have a good idea of what I'm going to make but can't show it til after she gets it in April.
I also have a couple of April plastic canvas swaps to do this month. More on them when they are done. I did get my swaps from March in the mail and received mine a bookmark and coaster
P.C. coaster
