Back to the old "grind"!!!

So I am thinking I will get out my fabrics today!
This makes me smile!
I haven't had my stash out in about 8 months and I am looking forward to seeing all those great fabrics once again.
I know it's going to lead to trouble though...
the need (want) to buy new fabric/craft supplies
late nights staying up crafting away
oh well...I will manage!

One thing I found the past couple years is to always have a crochet project going.  It's easy to cart around all over the place because all you need is yarn and a hook!  Easy enough!
So this has been my latest project...!

Our neighbors are having a baby in March (obviously a girl!) and I wanted to make them a little baby afghan for the car seat/stroller.  It's turning out nice.

As you see, I have 3 more squares to do plus I am thinking of doing a few with white on the outside...I just think it needs to be a bit bigger still.  Those 3 sticky notes are the 3 I still need to do and the order I want them in.  Funny story: One of my kiddos picked these notes up and brought them over to me and said "Mom, what are these?".  I over-reacted just a bit...only a bit.  It's not like I spent an hour setting these up in the correct order and figuring out what I was missing.  I "nicely" said "PUT THEM BACK and STAY AWAY!"  Nice and calm!  Ha!

These colors make me happy!  I LOVE them so much, especially that green and turquoise. 

I also need to figure out how I want to finish it off.  When I do I will share the masterpiece!

What are you working on?  Link up and share!

Wow. You've got a lot done & it looks so pretty. Was it fun to play with the fabrics? I've been mentally doing some sewing too.
