More Blankies for Boston

I wanted to share some more Blankies for Boston.  My friend Annie and I each made two blankies, these are our seconds.  She made the striped blanket, I believe it is called "Brain Dead Afghan".  It turned out beautiful.  I would like to give Annie some crochet props!  Her blanket looks perfect.  I tried to get some close ups so you can see the stitches up close.  And I love the weight of it, too!

I opted for another granny square, of course!  

I couldn't stop taking pictures of them.  They were shipped out on Friday, so hopefully they were received today and on their way to one of the bombing victims.
I am on to a new project now, which is coming along nicely.  I hope to be back this weekend with some new pictures!

Back Porch Time

Greetings from the back porch!  I've been busy sprucing up the back porch.  It seems to be a work in progress.  I want to get some more plants or maybe some flowers.  Like the granny square afghan?  Snatched it up at a thrift store.  I was going to take it apart, but now I am happy that I left it as is, because it fits perfectly.

It feels a little bit like I am in a treehouse.  Our porch is up on the second level and we are surrounded by all the trees in the back.  And it is so private.  I have been busy with my red spray paint, as you can tell.  

And Girlie keeps me company while I am out here.  Just look at those eyes!  She is such a good little doggy.  

I found this cool shelf at the thrift store.  $10!!!  Holy cow!  You can hardly buy lunch for ten bucks.  This is just what I have been looking for.  So I cleaned it up and sprayed it down

Isn't it awesome!!   I was so excited when I started painting it.  I new instantly that I would like it.  I have been keeping my eyes out for something like this and the price was right!

So now it is Sunday evening, and I realise that Monday morning is not far away.  I do have a crochet project to share, but I am blocking it right now. 

Funny, when I finish up a project I feel kind of lost. This afternoon I have been rummaging through my yarn trying to figure out what I want to do next.  

I am sure I will find something!
