4 GAD's and my latest afghan

First of all, here are my latest 4 GAD's. Yes there are 2 different size squares, but I'm doing 2 different afghans and I need different sizes for each of them. :) I can't do just one project at a time, never have been able to do that. lol But that way I don't get bored with the one I'm working on. It just takes a little longer to get it done. LOL
I got this done a few days ago and since my work hours have been a little crazy I haven't had much time to get online, so anyway here is my latest afghan and you guessed it, Miss Daisy is in the picture again. LOL She loves that spot on the couch and she just wasn't about to move....
I did the border in a blue and peach. Since I put the squares together with black I didn't want to do the border with black. But I think it adds character.
I have started putting my GAD's together and I using burgundy for that. I'm actually adding another round and doing the join as you go method. I haven't decided what color the border will be but I might do green, since burgundy and green go good together.
My Squaring the Big Circle afghan is coming along nicely, I've gotten a couple of rows done. I also using the join as you go method for that one too. I'll post a pic of that one in my next post.
Have a happy crocheting day,

crochet/other, a set on Flickr.

Some finished projects

I came across some pics of some finished projects and thought I'd share them.
This afghan was made for a friend and co-worker, it is a diagonal stitch made from the bottom corner to the top corner.
This project is a mole. It was a homework project for my youngest son, a few years ago, and yes it was legal for me to make it, but it had to be his idea. His teacher wanted a mole, it could be made anyway and it could be made by anyone, it just had to be the childs idea. So armed with a picture of a mole, this is what I came up with. And I must say it was the first crocheted mole she had ever gotten. So I let her keep it (since my son got a 100 for it) :)
This project is a circular shawl
Hope you have enjoyed these. Now it time to go crochet.
Happy Crocheting,

Square 18 and other Crochet

Today's square is.....
I've also been working on this today, I found it in my yarn stash and it is something I started about 2 years ago and it got put away for some reason or another, so I have been putting all the squares together.
See that bump in the bottom right corner? Well here is what that is....
That is Daisy. :) She was not about to move when I put the afghan on the couch to take a picture. lol
I also found a few more finished projects but I'll just show one of them today and show more tomorrow....
Well that's all for today. I'll be back tomorrow with more and probably have a finished photo of my afghan.
Happy Crocheting,

week 2 of GAD and my next project

Hello everyone,
Well I got my week 2 squares done. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with them, probably add another round of white and do the join as you go method and make an afghan. :) But anyway here is a pic.
Well now thats funny. It put the pic ahead of my post. lol

Now on to my next project. I found this last night while I was blog surfing. It can be found

It is beautiful. And I got the first square finished last night.

I also got some more squares started. :) I dug out my soft yarn for this afghan. I am going to do the join as you go method with this one, and each square is going to be different colors. I think it is going to be very pretty.

It's done!!

Yeah!! It's done! Well I've taken pictures but none of them seem to do it justice. Could be that my camera's not the best. Anyway here are a few pics so you can see it.
This is my crochet chair covered with the afghan. I love sitting here and crocheting.
I love that it is colorful.
And here are my squares so far for this week in granny a day.
Time to go and get something else finished. What are you working on? I think I'm going to finish one of my UFO's before I start something new, but there is lots of things I want to work on. :)

grannies and afghan

Well I've been working hard on my afghan and should have it finished today. Yeah! (and a photo) Stay tuned. I've also been working on my granny a day. They are turning out nice. I will also post a photo of what I have later.

First week of Grannies done

Here is my first week of grannies yeah!!!! :)
I also got square 3 done of my rainbow blocks.
I even got square 4 started. I've been working on my craft area, trying to get things more organized. It does look alot better now. During one of my breaks I even crocheted a scarf......
Another one of my goals this year is to downsize my yarn stash. I really do have to much yarn, (Did I just say that!!!????) lol, OK maybe I really don't have to much but hubby and my boys say I do. I do tell them that it is multi-purpose. It acts as insulation too!! And of course they just shake their heads at me.
I would really like to make as many things possible as I can. I want to make some afghans, and I haven't decided on what else I'm going to make yet. It just depends on what I see and say hey I'd like to make one of those. Have you ever done that? I do have a "To Do List" but who knows.

So as I am catching up on the "Granny a Day" and working, cleaning house, and of course my family duties, and my other crochet projects, I did manage to get some pictures taken. And I've already decided on my next project. I really like the Heidi Bears: African Flowers here is the link. As I continue with my Granny's I may just go ahead and do one of the hexagons.

This is the first 2 squares of my Granny's. I did manage to get 3 more done during lunch today. So tomorrow I will get the next 3 done and I'll be caught up. :)

This is the first block of my rainbow block afghan that I'm working on. My camera doesn't do them justice. And now the second....
I really like the colors I've chosen and I hope when I'm finished that the finished product looks as good as the vision in my head. And now a look at the third one. It's not finished but I thought I'd go ahead and put a pic of it up too.
I have so many more projects going on right now but these are the main ones at the moment. Now for a look at my boys. I love you two!!!!
These are my 2 sons!! I'm very proud of both of them.

new year, new me!

A friend of mine says that this is the year of the dragon, but for me it is the year of CROCHET!!! 
I have been crocheting everyday this year, and I plan on it everyday. Right now I'm working on an afghan. I think I'm going to call it "Rainbow Blocks". When you see it you'll understand. As I get more of it done I'll get some pics posted. 
I did my projects done for last year, I just didn't post about it or get pics. 
My second goal for this year is to be a better blogger.
I decided to set goals instead of resolutions I think I can keep that better.
