Lil's Granny Squares Blanket. I decided to use some other yarn to make another Granny Squares Blanket for us. I think that I am super excited about using the yellow as a border. I think that it will make it match the Kaffe quilt and pillows I made last year. What do you think? I love the Kaffe colors. I am hoping to have a little more time in February to make a Kaffe quilt. I have been working a lot recently and I am hoping to get more time off soon. I really need two days back to back in order to get a quilt rolling. I have been working 6 days a week. I think that my new Nikon does an awesome job at capturing true color. It makes me happy!

So my great aunt taught me the basics of crochet when I was a little girl. I called her Sister, everyone called her Sister. Sister was a very creative woman! She is the inspiration for a lot of things that I make. My Little sister's birthday is two days after Christmas. She slept on my couch one night last week, I had crocheted her this lap blanket. I thought about our great aunt a lot while I worked on this project. I laid it on Lil' and woke her up taking pictures of the the Granny Square blanket. Lil' seemed to like it a lot. I loved making this and will make another very soon.
Here is a Christmas Bowl. It is made with scraps from Christmas tree skirt I made last year for my mom. It took me like 1 1/2 hours to sew the strips together and crochet. I think ill make more. I made it for family dirty santa. My Dad got it. He loved it!

Well In 2011 I would like to be a more on point person, I guess keep up with the things that I do and follow through with the things that need to be done. I don't feel as though I am spelling this out very well. I want to stop slacking, sleeping in, and being lazy in the evenings. I want to create and do a lot more. Be more productive. Hopefully this will include blogging more than 100 times in 2011. I think it took me a year and a half to get to 100.
Here is my list of things to do:
2 baby toys- -1 done
