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.

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!
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!
