Finishes, progress, and stash

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great holiday season!

First, my 2 crochet finishes
A baby blanket, trimmed in dark blue.  Sorry about the pics.
A shawl in dark blue with a variegated blue thrown in.
My progress on my new year start, It's Cold Outside by Blue Ribbon Designs.  This is a fun piece!

My stash from Michael's

Caron Cakes in Blueberry Shortcake (bottom left), Red Heart in dark blue (2), Caron Cakes in Cherry Chip and Bumbleberry.  The last looks gray, but is really pretty purples.

See you soon!

Overdue thanks, a finish, and a rescue

Kim over at Wisdom with Needle and Thread celebrated her 60th birthday this year by sending out 60 RAKS and I was lucky enough to get one.  This is what she sent me.

The top photo is a cute pattern with the pre-finished bag and the bottom is a pincushion she made.  I love the "brooch" on it.  Thanks, Kim, and sorry it took me so long to publicly thank you!

Went to our local Goodwill store and found this for only $4!
It is a beautiful tray with a Hardanger insert done in gold mettalic on a cream and gold mettalic fabric.  It is gorgeous!

My stitching Mojo has abandoned me, but I have been crocheting and beading.  I finished a lapghan last night, just need to weave in the ends.  Red and cream yarn in a granny stripe pattern with a shell stitch border.  I am on a quest to use up most, if not all of my I can get more, lol!
If I  don't get back here before, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year!

Boxes, blanket, and apples!

Found these at a local consignment shop and antique store.

This brings my collection to 9.

Went to Michigan a couple weeks ago and got apples.  Yum!

Finished this granny stripe afghan a week or so ago.  I am ready for cold weather!
Trimmed it in white, which you can't see.

Just stuff

Hello!  I have been very busy lately and just hadn't felt like blogging.  And my mom had back surgery yesterday and she is home today, so I have my hands full.

Here are a few things...

My version of the Diamond O Chain by Bead Origami, with a matching bracelet.
Some new beads.  15/0 beads in silver and gold, diamond duo beads in gold and silver, crystal Capri O beads, 3 mm white and rose Swarovski pearls, and some chatons in crystal ab.
And a new start.  Happy Halloween by Kit and Bixby.

We bought a new couch a couple weeks ago and we love it!  It is a light gray and both ends are power recliners.  It is SO comfortable!  This picture was taken at the furniture store.
I have a couple stitch finishes that I will post soon.

I hope everyone is well!  Bye!~~~
