Mid month update

Walaaaa...it's all done.  I do love the colors of this and it's super soft and snuggly and perfect size for a car blanket.  The girl is quite pleased as well.
hard to photograph with animals around
I had to fold it up because the dogs kept walking across it while I was trying to straighten it properly and get a good picture.  Colors are truer in the above photo.  Now that's off my hook I shall have to find a new project!

Surprise mail day!  Brooke sent me a present, I do love getting surprises in the mail! 

oh yeah!
So since I finished up the Spectrum blanket, having nothing really pressing to work on, I looked through my wips.  My Water Lily blanket has been sitting around for ages, so I grabbed the basket and sat myself down to see about finishing up the green round on the balance of the flowers.  

such a delightful basket of things!
Kid sat next to me while I worked on the squares.  I had bunny garland up for Easter but while cleaning the house I figured it was time to change it out.  Since there are no holidays upon us right now, I went with simple flowers in red and turquoise attached to a white chain.  I realized I have no other photos of the garland other then this when I saw this picture.  I will have to get something a smidge closer!

My new hobby....succulents!  I love them and when visiting up North, my son has an odd little plant he showed me called Living Stone.  I decided to look for one of my own and went to Lowe's and Home Depot.  Didn't find it but came home with all these guys!  I am having so much fun with these plants.  I have a Jade plant that I have had forever out on my balcony and decided it was time to do something with it since it's just a leggy mess.  I took cuttings from it and from 2 other plants I've had for awhile and have them resting up before repotting them as well.  

3 repotted, 2 waiting to be repotted

So plants and crochet!  I love my hobbies!  My Sister is in the process of moving and gave me 2 big plastic bins of yarn, yes more yarn sorting for me.  Good thing I have a new grandchild on the way!  Managed between the plantings and reading to get the green done on all the rest of the flowers.  On to the blue!

all the green done
One last photo to show off the grow out progress of my grey.  I am pretty darn pleased with it (most of the time) and really love how it sparkles in the sunshine!

coming along nicely
I think that about wraps up for now, I have many other things going on right now so there will be another update fairly soon...hopefully less scattered about.  I'm going up North this weekend for a gender reveal party to found out what color blankets I can start making!
