Sorry, readers of my blog-

I've moved over to Instagram, where I don't have to write much, and it's easier to post photos! And I crochet now.
On Instagram, my name is:
Thank you all, for following my blog. Hope I see you on Instagram, and I wish you all the best :)

                      The End.

Summer Afghan

I finished the Summer afghan, using the patches from June, July, and August.
I crocheted a simple black border around the edge, and sewed flannel to the back to hide the yarn ends. Then I put yarn ties all through it, to add support. 
And now I've entered it in the California State Fair....wish me luck! 
The fair isn't until July, but I might find out this month if I've won. 
Sorry about the time delay! I won Honorable Mention; hooray!

Knitting Spot

The last patch of this project! This is me, sitting on my grey living room sofa, with the basket of yarn at my side. It's where I've been every day for a whole year! I will show pictures in a few weeks of the finished blankets. So check back occasionally. Thanks for following along with me on this knitting journey ;)

Mardi Gras

 King Cake is a special treat during Mardi Gras. It's a doughnut-shaped, praline-filled cake with purple, green and yellow sprinkles on the icing. A tiny baby is hidden inside, and whomever gets the piece with the baby will have good luck. Next Tuesday is the official Fat Tuesday, but I love king cake so much that I bought 2 cake kits this year!

This teapot used to belong to my great grandmother. When the tea is poured, it plays music!
