This is the original card. Linked to the post, not the Pinterest page... I don't have all the special Stampin' Up stuff and I improvised. I also handwrote the "How've you bean?" sentiment. It's not as cute as the original card but I still think it's all right.

I had been making some cards recently. I am kind of burned out from doing it though, now. It all started when I got some lavender index cards, and some lavender note cards with envelopes that were an odd shape. I wanted to make a card with it all though. The cards I made are in the top right picture. Then I was into the "banner" aspect of cards, and I made a couple more. Nothing big but it's crafting. I sent seven of them to a card campaign. I would maybe have done more, but I had another death in the family; and I thought the deadline was April 19th (but it was the 29th).

With a cute photo bomber. I don't know if I posted a link to the pattern I used. It's a free Ravelry download: Tuff Rib Socks. I think I will get those green socks out today and see if I remember what I was doing... Maybe I will start the pattern all over. Whoa, weird coincidence!! I started the green socks on this day ten years ago! 😮

I have finished one of the socks. I am almost to the toe of the second sock. It seems like after the heel, the rest of the sock takes forever for some reason. I actually wore it last night over the socks I had on. 😝 My feet were cold. It's taking me all of March to finish these. And Saint Patrick's Day is over with. So it doesn't look like I will finish the green socks for March. I was looking at how much of the green yarn I have and I don't even know if I will have enough to do two whole socks. I will have to see...

this pattern. And stash yarn. I don't know what the blue is, but the grey is "Naturally Caron" Country in "Silver Service". I have "about" three skeins of the grey. After I started these, I was thinking "Where are all the other socks I knitted myself?" And I went and found them. (I need to wash them.) And I found a pair I started. Well, I found two pairs I started. The green ones, and the Earl Grey ones. The Earl Grey ones I stopped because they are complicated (for me). I hope to finish the green ones soon, too. Maybe in time for Saint Patrick's Day. 😀🍀 In case you are interested in seeing the other socks I knit for myelf, one pair is here. (The last picture, also a picture of some other socks I knit for my son..) The other pair is here.

Progress on the four color baby sweater so far. I noticed that the light grey yarn seems to be slightly thinner than all the other yarn. Even though they are all worsted weight. Hmm... I really like this sweater though and I may make more when this one is finished. 😊
And an update on the baby quilt. I had sent it to the person(s); but I kept checking the tracking number, and one day it said "return to sender in progress". What??? Apparently they moved! In one month. Ughhhh... I seriously hope the box does not get lost. This quilt has been a one step forward four steps back thing since I started it. I guess I should check before I send something, in the future.. 😞

And, I saw this one on a group I am in. Someone had done one and I loved it. So, I started one... It's the Crochet Four Color Baby Sweater. I had the same baby in mind I made the quilt for. But I'm not sure... I'll see. I'm actually almost done with one of the sleeves since I took this picture.
