So here is what I have done so far, still quite a ways to go, but I am getting there.
It was hard to start all over again after having so much done on the other one, but I wanted to be perfectly happy with it, so it was worth it!
I made this afghan wider than the other one, I like that better. Plus, being a first time crocheter, I noticed my other afghan was getting wider as I went on, oops, a rookie mistake, so I am being careful with this one that it doesn't do that, so far so good!
Also, I made the stripes on this one two rows of double crochet instead of three, I like that better. I am really happy with it, I just smile when I see those colors together!
So on to the hot pink, green and turquoise pig, LOL! This pig is a piggy bank, my Mom said she thinks it was mine as a kid, but she can't remember! It does look like it's from the 70's about. I love it so much, it's such a cute happy pig, and she even has eyelashes! She has one ear broken off, but hey, we all have had a hard life right?? ;O)
Here is a close up of her, isn't she pretty?! What a happy piggy! She reminds me of my childhood, the 70's, and summer.
That candle, the Our Lady of Guadelupe candle, I got that at Big Lots believe it or not!
So that's what's been going on with me, sorry I haven't posted in a while, I have some medical and chronic pain problems, so sometimes I just am not up to posting, but I will always be back to post later!
Coming up soon, some kitty pictures for my friend Elaine, a dish of pretty goodies I am working on, and a photo frame I am going to decorate ~ but not sure how yet ~ paint, rick rack and vintage flowers? Ribbons? Shells? Hmmm.......
Have a great day! :O)
