Friday's Fancy ...

Its a working Friday and shortly will be heading out the door to begin the day but had to let you know that I finally finished a blanket.  All it needs now is a spin in the dryer and a sweet little one to wrap itself around.  It was good to be crocheting again after a bit of a break, due in part to my new found cross stitch fascination as well as the heat wave of the past week. The break in weather was just enough to happily spend the past few days with hook moving!

Having said that, the weather break is about to be broken and another heat wave is on the way (so they say).  So looks like my autumn cross stitch  will be reappearing and maybe get completed over the weekend.  This will be my third Fall design.  I would like to have a few more and then start on Christmas and winter charts. 

In true addiction fashion I am building my cross stitch stash.  I pick up a handful of floss each week, the goal to have each color available.  I figure this way I'll have whatever I may need for a new design readily available.

Time to get moving here ...
                          ya all have a great day, ya hear!
