Some Pretty Pillows

Hi everyone, I hope you all are having a lovely weekend ~ the sun has actually been shining here in West Michigan, but it is still very cold out. Below are a couple of pillows that I worked on this weekend, and they are both now listed over on Ebay ~ You will find a link to my Ebay listings over on my right sidebar. The first pillow showcases one of my very favorite Images by Francis Brundage, which I actually own the litho print of ~ the second pillow is a total departure from what I usually create, as there is not one hint of pink on it, lol :) This one showcases a wonderful French Graphic. It really is quite beautiful.

A few posts back I mentioned that I have finally starting working on crocheting a blacket for my son Austin, and below is a photo of where I am at so far. The finished blanket will measure 81" wide x about 78" long ~ there will be a total of 122 rows ~ and so far I have completed 45 rows. The colors that I am working with are Urban Camo, which consists of the colors black, dark gray and light gray, and the other is a dark blue. There will be altnerating rows of the Urban Camo and the dark blue (23 of the Urban Camo, and 10 of the dark blue) and when these are all completed, I will be doing a border of 2 rows of the dark blue. I told him I will do my best to have this all finished before he graduates High School, which won't be for another 2 years, so I have plenty of time :) Besides, in a couple of months or so, I will be having to get busy on making a sweet little afhgan for my new Grandchild that will be born in September, once we find out what our daughter is having :)

Well, time for me to go "veg' out" in front of the tv for a while and watch a movie...just relax for a change :) Until next time sweet friends.
