W.I.P. (Work In Progress) Wednesday

Since today is Wednesday I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been working on this week. Oh, and in case you don’t know already, I mean crochet projects! I learned to crochet when I was 8 years old. My grandmother taught me and I’ve been doing it ever since!

This gray block is just one of (probably) 16 blocks in various colors, joined together for a baby or small child. I’m thinking gray and shades of purple! It’s one of several blankets/throws I’ve made using the popcorn stitch. I just love the stitch, what can I say!

This mango block will be part of a large blanket that reads, “I Love You to the Moon and Back.” It will be only 2 colors: mango and white.


This is the little guy that’s giving me some problems! This is the photo from the pattern and because it’s written differently than all the other popcorn stitch patterns, I’m having a hard time with it. It doesn’t have a graph of the block like the others and there are a few other differences that are driving me to drink this evening!


So that’s what I’ve been working on for the past few days. I get tired of one pattern or one set of colors and I move on to the next! Oh! And I just finished this beauty! It’s a lapghan; just the right size to lay on the lap of an elderly Veteran!

Thanks for looking!

To New Projects and New Beginnings!

I finished my last 2 crochet projects and am currently taking on a few more! My 4th grandbaby is due in September and I still have a few things left to make! I’m starting a stroller blanket, a nursing shawl, and a car seat cover. You can see the lovely afghan I finished in time for the baby shower here!

I get so excited when a new project has been completed. It’s such a wonderful feeling to see the end result of so many hours of work. There are so many items on my list of things to make…. Holy cow, you should see my Pinterest board! Hahaha!

I’m looking forward to having a 4th grandchild. I think this grandbaby will stay close, as I don’t think my dear daughter-in-law will want to go too far from her family. I love all of my grandkids so much but things aren’t as I’d like them to be. One lives hundreds of miles away, another is being raised JW, and the oldest was adopted by his other grandparents, due to circumstances beyond my control. That was a long and painful story….and the reason I started blogging.

I’m looking forward to this new beginning, not only for myself but for my son and his wife and their little one who will be here very soon!

…….And as soon as I finish my projects for #4 I want to start some projects to sell for the holidays. So many ideas and so little time!!

Peace be with you, my friends!
