My First Afghan

This was the very first afghan I ever made. I've had it boxed up, waiting for a baby to use it. I decided a while back to get it out and put it on the back of the rocking chair in my craft room. I thought I'd share a picture of it.
That baby should be coming in a couple of years. We've decided to go to China and adopt a little girl. Right now we are trying to finish up some remodeling on our house. As soon as that's done, we'll be contacting an agency!

Both fair entries and their ribbons.

Little Witch

My little witch doll. She is done in Red Heart's Sage Mary. I just loved the green and purple together. This was my other fair entry this year. I won a blue ribbon for her as well. In addition she placed Third for Best in Show! So I got two ribbons for her!! Pretty good for my second year in the fair!

Allana's Poncho

Here is a another little girl's poncho. I made this one using Chris Simon's Esther's Square. You can get the pattern for her square here

I made two half squares (triangle) then did 2dc ch1 2dc shells along the straight egde of each triangle. I did slip stitches instead of shells in the middle (about 8 inches) of each edge for the neck line. Then wove white ribbon through the chain 1 spaces on both the front and back, working from the bottom up.

This was one of two entries in this year's County Fair. I got a Blue Ribbon for it!
