Pixel Block set 5

Another set done. Now to prep the next set. Wish they would whip up on their own. Not, where would be the challenge. They remind me of those picture puzzles, where you slid the tiles around until the picture was there to see.

I've been doing plenty of reading. I borrowed from the library and read, 'Stash Envy' by Lisa Boyer. I was laughing so mucb, I had to buy the book. I also bought her first book, 'The Dorky Homemade Look'.  Which arrived in the mail today and am looking forward to sitting down and reading.

I also finished a cross stitch design into a mini quilt wall hanging. Think it turned out pretty well.

Got side tracked...

Was crocheting my shawl when Buck came home with a Swiffer mop and pads

...he said he was throwing out a HINT...hahaha jokes on him because I just made one of these I found on Pinterest.
Now I've made 2 of these and have started a third one,  Save money and I'm using yarn stash.

Stash Envy by L. Boyer

My dear daughter told me abut this book.  After listening to her speak about it I wanted it.  I told her I'd wait until she let me borrow it from her but I'll admit I'm a bit impatient.  

If you know me then you'll have to admit I'm getting to be an old lady and set in my ways and I made up  my mind and followed through...(I got my book).
Now the hard part comes because I'm forced to WAIT 6 days until it is delivered.

New Colors

Well I started my shawl in a pink color but didn't have enough yarn to finish sooooo I took it all apart.  Then I went in search through all my bins for a color I had enough in. I ended up with 3 skeins of Navy Blue and 2 skeins of Turqua.  Wasn't too happy with my choices but I tried and it has begun to grow on me.
I'm only a quarter way through with it but I believe it may be a pretty one once I'm finished.

UFO Humor

Just working on the many UFO's I have underfoot. Hoping to finish a few this year.

The F-word being 'finish it' of course.

Oh, how I wish!!!

Found 3 skeins of yarn so now I have enough yarn to make my shawl.  My only problem is I really don't want to use this color. Dark Navy......I'm wanting to get away from dark colors. I think I'll try to intergrate some turqua into it.  Won't know till I try.
