Finally......An FO!!!!!!

It's finished. I finally have a finished piece to blog about. I finished Jellybean's blanket last night and both Abby and I are pleased with it. Now I have to get it in the mail to her. I loved this project. It is really an easy pattern and really shouldn't have taken me so long to finish, but life gets in the way sometimes.

Now I think I'll take a little break before starting on some cross stitch. My hands have so wanted to pick up some cross stitch the last few months.

I have yarn stashed to make a blanket for my bed using this pattern and to make this afghan, but those are for the new year.

I bought materials to do a canvas stitching and I have Elijah's birth sampler to work on so I will be happily stitching for the new few weeks, or longer.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you might be.



  1. Beautiful and such lovely, bright colors!!!!!

  2. Gorgeous! I love the stitch pattern. Your New Year projects sound great too. Enjoy the holidays!

  3. Bravo, Sharon! I can imagine Jellybean treasuring the beautiful blanket you made. Your new projects sound very ambitious and I look forward to your progress reports :) I am treasuring life as you are...loss is so difficult. xx from Gracie

  4. Thank you for showing us your beautiful blanket. Thank you for keeping-on-keeping-on, at this time. We must. We really must.

    For any of us, so far removed from the latest horror-in-the-news, to let Sadness envelop us, and spoil our family's Christmas... Does no goooood, to/for the grieving in Conn. And needlessly hurts our own little Sphere Of Influence.


  5. Dear Sharon,
    That is one gorgeous looking blanket. Great work!!

  6. Hey Sharon, well done on finishing the blanket for looks lovely and warm and great colours too.
    Sounds like your fingers are 'itchin' to be stitchin' and they certainly will be in the new year.
    I think it's great to have a crafty goal and new projects to look forward to.

  7. Gorgeous colours in that....really like it. It. Is a problem, isn't it, when you are enjoying what your hands are doing but y our head is so anticipating the next project. Enjoy your cross stitch! I did some in the past but find it difficult to see to do now. I love looking at w hat others do though! Still can't get over the colour blends in that blanket.....lovely! Joan
