... This will probably have a Green Trim with Red Berries embroidered into it by using a yarn needle. (I'm still brain storming of how I want it to look.) The stores show a lot of Embroidery for trimmings of the blanket or afghan. And that stuff is $$$$$$... But I digress... I'm using Simply Soft by Caron.... It looks Orange here, but it's a TRUE RED... It's much bigger now. I worked on it all last night while watching the game with hubby...:-) I'll have to put another picture of it soon.
Oh yes... This one is for us!!! I already know where it will got for Christmas... On the Living Room Sofa... It's a Dark Country Blue. ... Speaking of the living room... I better make a White Tree Skirt for our Christmas Tree in the Bay Window also... *** Susan's To Do List... Finish Christmas afghan... Start White Tree Skirt for Living Room... Crochet Pocket Scarves for siblings... Sure I'll think of more later.... I ALWAYS think of more at night while TRYING to sleep. ***

...Over the weekend we went to a fireworks show... And here are a few pictures I captured... The show took place near Lawrencebug, Ind.
They were GREAT! When I tried to take pictures of the Finale... It was just a huge BLUR of flashing... I think we need a video camera..;-)

... Something I have been thinking about is this... "What am I going to make for Christmas ? " I have been making something that I saw on one of our excursions we took while in Alaska. A lady next to me was COLD. It was a very windy & cold day. So she drew her scarf around her and PUT HER HANDS IN IT!!! She had a pocket on the ends of her scarf!!! I asked to see it and she showed me... I thought, " That Looks Easy To Make... Just Fold Over enough of the scarf to make pockets and sew the sides." So I have been making those...;-) * It's not a pattern... but it's easy to do.* I have made one and working on the next one.
... After all, there is only around 3 months til Christmas. I bet you really love me for reminding you of how many days you have til the gift giving day!!! *** Christmas *** So get your Hooks and Needles moving...:-)

...I started this afghan on the Pearl ( NCL Cruise Ship) It started out as little Granny Square that kept growing. I used a Hand Dyed Cotton Yarn that I bought on E-bay from Mary Ann ... Her store's name is LOTUSBLOSSOM.... Her prices are great. Yarn is very good. This is yarn is called Black Rose... She is very nice to work with.
Here it is...
I did 3 Rounds of Single Crochet on the edges, then a round of Shells.
