Some WIPs...

Well here is some of the things I am still working on, but will take forever, I think. This is the 'Between Meals Centerpiece' doily I am working on for February. (Still) I am on round 38 now.
And this is the scrap granny ghan I was talking about a while back. What do you think? I'm not very good at getting colors that 'go' together. I just try to do colors that don't clash. If the row I'm working on is green, the next color I'll try to 'coordinate'.
I still haven't started the Barbie poncho yet. I got the thread out, and I made one out of paper to see how wide and long, etc to make it... It's just a matter of doing it. I finally have a car again Woo Hoo! Now I can go somewhere during the day. And not be stuck home (unless I *feel* like walking down town with three kids.....) We also signed a lease on a new place, we won't be moving in for another month though. My husbands' mother is coming back here then and I told my husband, I want to be out of here before she even gets here!!!

I think the scrap afghan looks great! I have made them before and my husband loves them. :)

Thanks, Rachel. They are easy too and you use up all your scraps. Sometimes you have to go buy more lol. I was going to say, that poncho is really easy to make especially if you've never made one before. It is basically just two rectangles sewn together. Super easy.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

The doily is really turning out pretty, Tina! As for the afghan, I'm sure its nice and colorful, but I have the same trouble with colors. I just copy color combinations...

The doily is beautiful, Tina! If this is the same one you were working on a few posts down, I'm so glad you didn't rip it out (bet you are,too!).

Your granny is great. I'm working on something somewhat similar right now but I have gotta say, yours is so much nicer and much more colour coordinated. Great job!

Tina said...

Thanks Mimi. I don't know how the afghan will turn out but I have been trying to work on the doily more.
Thanks for stopping by, Jaye. I don't think my color combos are great, but it works for now. I would like a few more colors to add in there, but don't have anything right now.

Hi, Tina! Long time no talk!!
I've been VERY busy at work and in life at home too.
I love your granny! I'm a COLOR GIRL! I LOVE COLOR!! You're doing a GREAT job! Don't let it stress you out too much - decision making always zaps me right out too. LOL
I started a striped scrap ghan a while ago - it's sitting in a WIP pile somewhere in my house....LOL....but what I did was simply use colored stripe and then a cream/white/ecru stripe then colored stripe again then black or dark brown stripe so I didn't get dark and light "patches" in it. Make sense?
I should really pick that one up again. My girl is going away to college in the Fall (not very far from us) but I'd like her to have a fun afghan to take with her.
Thanks for the inspiration!!! :)
Take Care!! Hope everything is well with you!

Hi Cristin- Thanks for stopping by! And thanks for the encouragement on the afghan. I haven't worked on it for about a week now. Only because I am trying to get the things I have to crochet out of the way or at least a dent in, know what I mean? Preemie projects, and a toy swap I'm in... ;p
