One square at a time...


Hello my Chickadees..
How have you all been doing this week?

My week has been nice and relaxing and the
weather has been just about perfect for this time of year. 
The hubby and I have been able to sit outside with our morning 
coffee without breaking out in a sweat..



I don't know if you remember this


This is a baby blanket that I have been crocheting. 
and crocheting and crocheting..  For a very long time.


Well I am so happy to tell you I have finally finished 
all 265 squares..  Whew.. I thought I was never going to finish..


My next project will definitely be something much smaller.. 


I am thinking mittens approves of my crocheting skills. 
She jumped right on it the minute I put it down to take some 
photos of it..



Thanks so much my friends for stopping in.
I appreciate you being here.. 

Hugs~
