Textured Afghan Planked!

Happy Sunday to everyone!
Well I did it again!
I started a new project before I finished my old one!
But I couldn't resist, the afghan was just to cute
and I really wanted to try out the pattern!
And best of all, I found the pattern book on our
Libraries bargain table, 25 cents,
now who could resist that?!
 Originally called "Pale Green Textured Blanked"
but after taking inventory of my yarn stash 
I decided on a bit different color theme.
The new color line up.  
 The bargain book.
"Crocheted Afghans" by Melody Griffiths.
Just love how the classic waffle stitch gives the 
afghan that wonderful texture.
I'm hoping to get the blanket done before the weather turns cooler,
oh yes, and my fall cowl too! 
Looks like I'm going to be busy 
knitting and crocheting the next few weeks!

Thank you so much for stopping in!
Hope you all have a great week 
maybe I got you inspired to start a new project!

Believe in your Dreams!

Hello everyone!
Hope your weekend is going well!
I been busy in my stamp-room 
creating cards for upcoming 
Birthdays and other occasions
on top of trying to keep up with our crazy yard.
The grass is growing faster then we can mow it,
it's August, it supposed to be brown and dead,
not so this year, we are at it twice a week, 

But I was able to squeeze in some playtime
and made a card for a sweet 
friend and co-worker who is leaving us to
follow her dream in becoming self-employed!
 "Believe in your Dreams"
is for her!
 Sentiment from Inkadinkado stamp set
Flower from Stampin'Up! set "Friends".
 One of my crocheted flowers.
Pattern for Daisy flower here.

 Butterflies were leftovers from previous projects. 
I hope she liked the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Wishing you a great weekend 
a wonderful week!
