Nothing Like a Wet Weekend,,

Well this past weekend was a very wet and windy weekend, that put all our BBQ plans to wash. We got hit with Tropical Storm Beryl. But all was not lost, I got alot of crafting done and it was a perfect weekend to do just that. I did a little of this and little of that, and it made my fingers oh so happy to be moving again. We watched a couple of movies, order pizza and just sat around chilling out. And this morning it is still here, raining like its never rained before. We definitely need this rain and my flowers and plants are loving it, but I really need it to leave by tomorrow as I have running around today and don't feel like getting soak doing it..So enough about that, I am back to stitching,crocheting,sewing and reading and I am back in my element, and with a bang, well enough talking about it lets me show you..

First up is my granddaughter 4th of July outfit I made her,,I am having a matching bow made for her to..

 Next up is my stitching I am working on and loving it. It is "Marys Best" by With thy Needle and Thread, there is a little sheep down by the girl, you can barely see it. I am stitching it on the recommended fabric 30ct, and using DMC threads.
 And this beauty I call my African violet afghan, I am crocheting it in the larkspur/teardrop pattern and I LOVE this pattern with these colors, I ran out of yarn so it is off to Hobby Lobby to get some more of their I Love This Yarn,,
 And last but not least, I crochet around this blanket, I will be putting this cutie in my Etsy Shop.

Well there you have it,, as I said I think I am back in my element. I hope you all have an awesome week, and I will be looking for what you all are working on. Also thanks for all who played in my giveaway, keep coming back as I have another giveaway in the making for next month..till then keep those fingers moving.

Wow, you've been busy! I haven't touched my sewing machine in months, but I've been feeling the urge lately!

You can stitch AND crochet?!! You talented lady! I received 2 books on how to crochet for my birthday but I haven't got around to trying it yet.
The outfit you've made for your grandaughter is great - she'll look fabulous on July 4th!

Your afghan is beautiful!

Love the little dress for your granddaughter. You'll have to post a picture of her IN her dress.
