Lotus and Tiger in the snow playing. 7 sided doily in white DMC thread
First attempt at Diagonal Box Stitch. Finally figured out how to decrease to make it square, this is about 7 inches.
This is a 12 inch Diagonal Box Stitch square for an exchange on one of my groups. I have to make 20 - 12 inch squares, but don't like doing the same for any. I hope I can find enough different type of squares, or make them up myself like I did with this one. I love it though.
Snow again. There are several pics of the front lawn (yeah right) and the back yard. We have a tree house in the backyard that the people before us built. Well, it was here when we moved in anyway. It has tons of snow on it. We have a good size backyard here for the dogs.

Hello all. Just a little update. I thought it was Spring but here in Colorado it is still Winter. It has been snowing and sometime snowing hard for the whole day and afternoon. At 6 p.m. we already had 10 inches and we are expecting about 6 more over night, so the roads are a mess. Just wanted to show y'all the pictures of the front and back yard.
I finished the blanket I was working on for my niece, but have to still weave all the ends before I can add the photos, wash it and send it on it's way. I love the way it turned out and then I learned how to do the Diagonal Box Stitch last night. I will add the square that I made. It came out cool too.

Long time, I know I am behind on posts.

My heart belongs to baby afghan. This is a close up of the progress, I have 9 pattern repeats so far. Using two colors of Variegated yarn from Hobby Lobby brand, Yarn Bee. Pattern can be found here, there are a few errors, but here is the link:

6 Flower scrubbies from a pattern that a friend gave me. They are super quick to make. I made these while talking to my niece on the phone.

This is the color for Prostate Cancer I believe. I made this 14 inch square with Red Heart Super Saver and did the border in Reverse single crochet, this is the same pattern as the thread doily above.
Okay, I am behind on posts I know. I have lots of pics to add of things that I have been making lately. Sorry. I was sick and so I didn't go online all the time, plus I have been on Facebook, and that takes alot of time too. So, here goes a bunch of stuff I have been doing. I am still in the process of the "My Heart belongs to Baby" afghan. It is so pretty I think. I like the pattern idea, but there are some errors in the pattern. I need to sign on to let the original pattern writer know. Just have to remember what my password and user name are for that site. LOL
Today is my birthday , so I have to get some sleep before I have to get up. LOL It is after 1:30 am. Will post more later. Have to decide where I want to go to dinner.
