It Has Been So Long~Ripply Ta-Dah!!!

It has been so long since I have posted and so long since I have visited you all. The girls are keeping me busy. I am still searching for a job, but I am still on the fence about that. I would love to stay home for a while longer. I used to work in child care and I hesitate to put them in the care of others. Don't get me wrong, some child cares are great, but I have heard some horror stories. Well, I have finish to show you. Of the crochet kind, not the stitchy kind. I haven't put needle to thread yet this year. Soon, soon.....
Here is my ripply Tah-Da!!! I am so pleased with this blanket. It is done with Vanna's Choice Acrylic yarn which for acrylic, is so soft. I have to tell you that I got this yarn at the discount store for half off. $2.50 per 340 yard skein. I really should have bought them out for that price. I have also been at my whits end trying to keep the dog off it!!!! But, we have been snuggling up in it every night. I have also started something else, perhaps another afghan.


On to the Happy Dance!!!

Such wonderful, colorful fun. The blanket measures, 45 inches by 65 inches. Plenty big enough for the couch. My original plan was to keep going and to make it fit a twin sized bed, but that bed is a couple of years off, so I'll have to plan another one.



And for a nice warm nap......

It doesn't get much better than this.
Hope everyone is doing well out there in blogland. I'll be visiting soon. I have more pics to show.
Thanks for stopping by,
Hillery
