Small Progress

Good Saturday morning all.  Weather is starting to brighten each day, despite the April rain showers I had on my vacation week last week.  I did get beautiful weather on the weekends though.  I even took time for crochet.

For this project i carried on with a light beige and then went to the Bernat Pop yarn. 
I don't think it's too much of a change at all.  Just different shades of browns.
I got a new owl mug from a day trip we went on last weekend.

I added more squares to this project.  Not sure yet what it'll be, most likely another blanket.

We went to an Antique store and I found this fun coloured quilt for my bed and 
I knew my girl would look pretty on it. 

I got myself my favorite flower. Sadly now they are all wilted.

 We went to a butterfly conservatory last weekend.  I've never been to one before, my honey had and he said this one had a lot more butterflies flying around but the place was smaller. 
Still it was an interesting experience.

And a few Antique shops and others while in a small Mennonite area.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Leap Into Spring

I've been doing a bit more crochet lately.  Mostly on the weekends.  The weeks just fly by, gym, work, house chores, pet attention, hubby attention. Finally come the weekend i pull out my projects and unwind crocheting while usually watching Hockey Saturday nights. I had boughten a Caron Cake yarn skein in buttercream a while back and started making this star shaped throw.

I only bought one skein, my bad, to go back to Michael's craft store to find they haven't had this color in quite some time.  I've search online with no luck for the buttercream. I popped into Walmart one day and they had these by Bernat.  It's a similar colorway just has some darker brown shades.

Sadly, I think I will have to continue with that. I think it'll be a complementary color scheme to what I have already started. What do you think?

And on the trip to Michael's to see if they had the buttercream in, these small skeins of fun colours caught my eye and envisioned a project in my head. They were only a $1.25 each.  Then I had a coupon for the big skein of white for joining. 

Work in Progress.

Just a few pics of the fur babies.

Keegan is turning 15 this month.  Also my birthday this weekend. Honey and I going out for a romantic birthday dinner.  And for dessert, a week off of work. 

Happy Weekend All!!!
