Yes, I have been stitching and stitching on my crocheted blanket and my Mermaid Trio and I am making great progress. First, here is my Spice of Life blanket:
It’s getting quite long and keeps me nice and warm while I am crocheting on it. I have about 20 rows to complete on section 5 and then I can start the border which was released yesterday. So I am not too far behind.
I have learned so much stitching on this blanket and have felt so close to my Step Mom who taught me to crochet when I was 12 years old. She taught me to do the basic stitches and the ripple afghan. I never really learned how to read a pattern or do complicated stitches. So I am doing this in honor of her. She passed away 4 years ago and I miss her dearly. The Spice of Life blanket reminds me of the “scrapghans” she would make from her left over yarns. If you would like to create this beautiful blanket, you can get the pattern at Sandra’s Cherry Heart Blog here. Sandra did a wonderful job.
I have also been stitching on Mermaid Trio. Hubby says if I get it finished by Friday, we can take it in to be framed on our way out of town on Saturday. I finished beading Mermaid Verde last week and she turned out so sweet!
I love how she turned out. Now I am working on beading Coral Charms and she has so many beads! I am hoping to finish her today so that I can get started on the last mermaid and get her finished by Friday night. I will keep you posted on my progress. For those that are not familiar with the patterns, they are La Petite Mermaids by Nora Corbett. I am stitching them on 16ct Aida Summer Showers by Sunny Dyes fabrics.
That is my update for today. What is on your needles today?
