The two graph blocks are for a dino blanket for Aiden. I'm not sure I like the stegosauraus. It's really the first one I have done so involved and I just don't think it looks right. I started the second one and it seems to be going much better than the stegosauraus. He was a LEARNING EXPERIENCE!!!
The green chenille blanket/throw/afghan is one I started last year. I'm going to try and finish as many WIP's and UFO's as I can. I've got lots of other things I want to make, but I have so many things unfinished. So UNLESS I need a baby gift or someone requests something I'm limiting myself to UFO's, friendship squares and charity squares, until I knock off at least 5 UFO's. This will be with the exception of the two comfortghan's that I'm gonna make for Willis and Sam. Honestly? We'll see how long this lasts!

Haven't crocheted in several days. Today did about 15 rows on my green chenille throw. Seems like it'll be very warm when it's finished. Don't have any pics of it, maybe tomorrow.
These are some pics of purses I have made. I've made lots of purses. The red one was for a purse swap on the 'ville. I absolutely loved this one and may eventually make it for myself. The blue/green variegated is a version of the Fat Bottom Purse, but was a tear-off pattern. It took me almost a year to make it, because I made one side and then put it down until almost a year later! I love my Halloween ones. The orange one I use, the black one I made to sell, but have not actually put it up for sale. Maybe I should try etsy?

This my wonderful swap package from Juli for the "Au Naturale" swap. Lots of good stuff, including some "Wool of the ANdes" which I've always wanted to try. I love the Vally Yarns Denim Blue in the front. Gorgeous yarn! Also love the Knit Picks "Quarry" What a great yarn! I've heard of Knit Picks, but never ordered from them.
This is a thank you from Maya. The comfortghan I made for her is farther down on the blog. What a nice gift. I have it hanging above my computer, makes me smile.
