awww--cute froggy!

I have a lot of magazines from the 70's and 80's...and probably some yarn from then as well Cheesy

A lot of the yarn was stiff, sparkley, and pilled a lot...

I have this goal of making at least one afghan from each of my magazines from that time period--last year I made one for charity that was baby blue, rust and cream...sounds hideous, but I liked it...it was straight from a book from the 70's!

I have the same book.  I want to try the jute vases, but am a little intimidated by them.  Maybe after crocheting for a few months more.  I actually like the color combination on your afghan.  It's beautiful!

definitly keep playing in the clay, momcuellar!!  And definitly more froggies!! Don't they just make ya smile!!  =]

I like the blankie you made, too, alwaysinmyroom...nice color combo as well.  Why mess w/it if it looks that good in a book-it's bound to look even better holding it!  What size is it??  baby blanket size? the stitches look tiny.

I have to come clean about my "only buying cat eyes" comment.  It is not true...I just finished a project that I had to buy a skein of yarn for AnD I know for a fact I've bought two scraps of fabric while I've been out...and one for no good reason!! Well, it had tigger on it...but w/no project in mind!! *Doh*

What pretty blankets!  I have been contemplating a "stashgan" as well . . . I have so many leftover bits of worsted wool.  But first I have some jammie pants to make for DD and myself.  I bought an awesome sleeping owl fabric a year or so ago and I need to get cracking on them!
