I am still working on my RAINBOW LOLLIPOPS QUILT – and this may be on my Design Floor for MONTHS……..LOL. I have quite a few flowers made – but there are more to do on the horizon – - – so I will keep plugging away!
TA DA….but I do have a couple of SHOW AND TELLS……
First – here is a project that Grandangel Leanna and I made – a sock monster that she named SHELDON. It took us one ENTIRE DAY…..but turned out to be pretty cute! (Sheldon is a character on THE BIG BANG THEORY – I have never seen this, but now I am curious, so I may check it out. I mean, Sheldon must be funny .. or cool .. or weird to be distinguished as the namesake for this sock monster!! :))
It turned out to be really cute but it was NOT EASY and there was SIGNIFICANT RIPPING OUT OF STITCHES GOING ON!!! I am sort of hoping that Sheldon won’t be requesting any “FRIENDS” in the future!!!
AND my second SHOW AND TELL is my pineapple afghan that I crocheted. It took TWO YEARS – but I was working on other things as well! This was what I took to Grandangel Sarah’s Dance Lesson each week – I crocheted for one hour while she danced. I love how it turned out – it is a pretty shade of baby blue – even though in the picture the PRETTY BABY BLUE looks a tad bit pale!
This will one day belong to my first Great-Grandangel; however I don’t have any Grandangels who are married yet – so this may be ON HOLD for awhile. Now I am going to start a pink one. …in case my first Great-Grandangel is a girl. I KNOW I KNOW…..these colors are sexist…..but it’s my party so I will go with traditional colors! It was so funny because when some of my California Grandangels were visiting last summer, they were PREDICTING who would have the first baby and get the afghan! It was interesting for me to easedrop and hear their REASONS for choosing who would be a parent first … and who would NOT BE A CANDIDATE AT ALL!
Unfortunately I didn’t get the binding on Jannae’s art quilt – so THAT is still on my Design Floor too. Sometimes our best intentions get preempted by other projects that just pop out and demand attention! :) AND we all know how much that I LOVE binding. I do it better when I am with OTHER PEOPLE – so I decided that I would take it to my next VIRGINIA SCRAPPERS GROUP. OH NO….I can’t go this Saturday because I will be at the FIRST ANNUAL SWIFT CREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GATOR 5K. I am working as a volunteer with the children in the FUN RUN first .. and then I will actually be IN the 5K (am I crazy or what!?)
