A finish and some photos

Another finish for me! I loved this freebie from Daffycat and knew I had to stitch it as soon as she posted it. I love it. I was planning on finishing it for Christmas, but that may not happen, but I do have everything I need, so I may be able to.

I'm putting this back into my rotation, I decided.

It's an afghan I'm making of Diane Graebner designs. I've been messing around with it for a while, but it's time to buckle down.

And, lastly, a goofy picture of the dog. Proof that, in this house, if you sit still too long, someone is going to decorate you. I am very fortunate that he is so patient with me, but pitbulls were once called "the nanny dog" because they were so good with kids, and he must just view me as the big kid who must be humored. Yes, he will get handsomely rewarded by Santa, LOL

LOL, love the pic of the dog.

Congrats on your Believe finish. Good luck on your afghan WIP. I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on mine, and I'm so excited about finishing it! 13 years in the making, LOL.

Love the shot of Beazer ... he must be well-supplied with the virtue of patience ...

Love the start on your afghan! I am thinking that the exceptionally cold weather has got a lot of stitchers thinking about afghans. I just pulled out a UFO using a pair of Jacobean charts from an old Celebrations magazine. I'll make a deal with you: I'll encourage you to make progress on yours if you'll do the same for me.

Hey, maybe we should start an Afghan SAL ... with it's own blog to post photos ... it might be fun to see all the different designs people choose. And maybe, just maybe, by next winter there'll be a lot of people cuddling under cozy afghans.

Cute little finish. That afghan sounds interesting so I'm in favor of it returning to your rotation!

And your doggie looks so cute and tolerant!

What a cute pup! Congrats on the finish! I hope you had a good Christmas.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
