Bunting and flowers

I finished making myself a lovely granny triangle bunting.  

I've also been doing some african flowers that I've been wanting to try the pattern to turn them into squares out for a while.  I think they make wonder squares.  Now what to do with them, hmmm......

I acquired a half started blanket from a co-worker who knew someone who was getting rid of yarn and such. It's a lovely pale yellow that may just make a nice baby blanket for my cousin who is expecting. 
Who actually got married today.  It was a lovely day for a wedding. First wedding   I've been to on a Friday.

Me, cousin Sarah and my other cousin Savanah. Lovely ladies and glad we're getting closer as the years go on.

Bunting and Stripes

I finished the bunting I made for my friend's daughters birthday. Got to use some of my fun buttons.
Also made this granny stripe scarf.  I might just give it to her as well. I've been trying to take it easy. 
I've been getting a bit sore in the right shoulder, elbow and hand.  
No fun, but hate when I can't crochet. 

Happy Hump Day!

Ripple Cushions

Finished my first cushion.  It's just a small couch cushion but still warm and lovely.  Working on the second one, a bit bigger and I'm going to join it a different way with a buttoned closure on the back.

It's been a busy week with overtime at work and co-workers birthdays.  I started a bunting for my friend's daughter's birthday next week.  I should get it done this weekend and will post it then. 

Some new yarns I got on sale.  Hoping to make something for my cousin's baby boy she's going to have. She just found out.  I'm excited.  Other than that a pretty slow week crafting. 

Happy Weekend All!

Ups and downs

Well since Easter I've since turned 40. I had a few days off.  I went to visit a friend and her little one.  On the way home I had a stupid incident with the car.
I drove over the edge of a median in a parking lot.  It didn't sound good after that and I noticed the engine mount cracked. I had to get it towed to a garage.  Honey, was needless to say pleased, NOT. I had plans to go to dinner with my cousin and still did that. But, nonetheless it put a damper on my day. 
I've been crocheting ripple cushions in efforts to stash bust. 

And I had since made one more bunny.  The cat seemed to like it. 

Happy weekend all!
