  As the saying goes, "Long time, no see." I know I have been MIA for a long time. I promised some friends that I would post pictures of my latest finished projects. Below are pictures of a very soft chenille baby blanket that I made for my new great grandson last fall. He was born in early January 2019 and so adorable!

 I had a hard time showing just how nice it is. I made up my own pattern, a very simple single crochet, chain one, single crochet throughout the whole thing. This yarn is bulky and I just wanted something warm and cuddly for the baby to enjoy feeling the softness.

The next one is a two-tone green heart stripes afghan. It looks like strips but is made as one piece so there was no sewing together and that is what I like! When I am finished crocheting I want it done! This is a large afghan and really warm. If I didn't already have many afghans I would make this one for myself.

The hearts are made with raised cluster stitches. These pictures also do not do it justice and for some reason wasn't able to edit them. They also don't show the colors very well but you get the idea.

 This afghan has gone to the church for the annual auction coming up February 6.

Below is a poncho. This was really hard to get good pictures without a model wearing it. The long points are center front and back. The sides are shorter and slightly shaped to fit elbows, which is really unusual and I had not seen that before. It is an easy pattern and sort of lacy, which does not show well here.

Below shows a close-up of the neckline. The yarn is a brown/white twist.

I need to spend some time with the camera program. It is coming up so different than I am used to and is frustrating.

I will try to let you know what they sell for at the auction, providing I get that information since I won't be there to see them sold.


  1. Welcome back!
    Congratulations on the new great-grandson : )
    Your handiwork is so very beautiful. It should make some good money at the church auction!

  2. I have missed you. Beautiful work. I love to crochet just don't have time.

    1. Thank you! I hope you will be able to get back to crocheting soon. I bet if you just find a project and buy the yarn you will find the time to work on it, even if for only a few minutes at a time. I know some women keep their project with them wherever they go in case they have to wait awhile, such as a doctor or dentist visit. One young lady brought her's along to the court house where we spent a lot of time waiting during jury selection. I could have gotten several dish cloths made since we were there all day, and my name was never called.

  3. Nice to see a post from you again. I love crocheting and kitting and always enjoy seeing your wonderful blankets


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
