Just a Little Something

I am trying to post at least once a week and here it is the end of the week and I was sitting here wondering what can I share.  I don't have much.  We have another big snow storm coming our way tomorrow.  Cannot say I am excited about that though.

I did finish the pin keep I was working on last week.  I found some butterfly pins that I thought would look cute stuck in it.  It does make me smile.

I know you are all probably done talking about Christmas.  But I joined a CAL (Crochet Along) on Facebook to get a head start on next year.  I have managed to keep up.  Tamera of the All About Moogly blog is hosting and every two weeks sharing a new square for us to work on.  You can go here for the first block if you are interested.  This is my first block.

And this is the second block.  I have not blocked them yet and they are 12" blocks.

 And this week I decided to make one more of each block using these colors and by next December I will have a gift for my Mom and my Mom-in-Love.

 Hope you are all staying safe in all these winter storms and am so glad that you have stopped by for a visit!
Blessings from our home in the woods.

You are such an accomplished seamstress! I only wish that I could sew. crochet half as well as you! I still use my needle keeper that you made me. It is always on my side table for a quick mend. We did not have school after Wednesday this week. You probably saw what happened to Atlanta, it was not that bad here but they waiting way toooooo long to dismiss us and I had to creep home. At least I made it home! Jeff has had the flu for the last week so it was good that I could take care of him. Tomorrow is his 60th birthday and I only wish he felt better! Have a wonderful weekend!

I don't know how you do it...I feel so lazy and sluggish after I see all that you get done!
Sorry you're having more snow. I wish we'd get at least a little bit. Have only had a few inches and it all melted the next day. I think we're going to have a "buggy" summer.
Getting ready for the BIG GAME on Sunday...GO HAWKS!!!!

Very cute pin keep! Like your blocks too. I am working on a sweater blanket right now.
We are snowed in again too!

Hi Brenda!!! Love your little pincushion, that is really darling and the butterfly pins are perfect for it. Your crochet blocks make me homesick for crocheting again - but it hurts my wrist too bad - still need to give knitting a try again. Hope you're keeping well and that you're ready for yet ANOTHER snowstorm, lol. Glad I'm not working til Friday!
