Hi blogging friends. Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post. They are greatly appreciated. I decided a month ago to work on a WIP doing one strand a day and one day a week. I picked The Library by LHN. That lasted for two weeks. I realized that the county fair was only 2 months away and I better get with the program. Here is a pic of The Library.
I have also decided not to do Anniversaries of the Heart series by Blackbird Designs. Its just way to big and has a lot of over 1 stitching that don't work on 14 ct fabric. I have the first 9 charts if anybody is interested in purchasing them. I started another picture in its place. Here is a pic.
Neighborhood Row - Bent Creek - 14 ct lt. fiddler
So, I decided I want to crochet at least 6 afghans, a shawl and a doll dress for a 13" doll to enter in the fair. I have until July 23 to complete them. But, I also decided that I want to enter America, Land That We Love in it also. There is a square for your name and Completed On. How neat would it be to complete it on July 4? As you can see, I still need to bs around the squares and I am also going to bs around the letters and stars. (You can click on any picture to enlarge and click on the enlargement to enlarge more.)
Here are the color changes I made:
America - 666
Stars between - 798
State names and Dates - 796 and 817
Border around ea state - 321 and 995
Outside squares on first row - 798 and 321
The bottom saying will be blue with red hearts. I also put the stitched by and completed on in one square. The other square will say: All American - Baseball - Hot Dogs - Apple Pie. I will be either hearts or stars or both on the bottom of eash one.
I'm down to about 7 weeks so I better get with the program.
