|A MILLION squares which need to get pieced together!|
After crocheting a million squares, it took me about a year to finally piece it together! No joke! It was pretty slow tedious work! But it turned out so nicely!
Do you see the afghan in this advertisement? The commercial and posters were shot in my house, and thats my daughters bedroom. THAT is my afghan! It was quite flattering that in this series of commercials the Art Director didn't change ANYTHING in my home! She said her work was done for her! Those are even my daughters Holly Hobby plates, pink frames, and butterfly wings! Anyway, enough bragging!
Needless to say after my year long crochet project, I've only picked up my crochet needle a few more times since. I had a real amigurami stint! That was quite fun. However, not too much crocheting after that.
I wanted to make myself fingerless gloves, but just didn't get around to it, so when I saw these at our local mega bookstore on sale for half price I bought them:
They are knitted, not crocheted, but they are wool and quite pretty. However when do we ever leave anything alone?
I selected a bunch of pastel buttons from my HUGE button collection.
That green button was from a cape my mom had made for me when I was 7 years old...oh the '70s!
I had to beat off my 28 year old and my 9 year old daughters! Mines all mines! Precious says its mines!!! (That was my Gollum impersonation btw).
