WIP – 05/05/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Campfire Applique

Well, after my 5th day of counting calories and working out (walking between 2 – 3 miles a day) I have lost 2 pounds! Hoping to keep this trend up and I don’t fizzle out! 🙂 Crochet certainly isn’t the most aerobic thing to do but it is satisfying when you get your projects finished! Like this little project that slipped off my hook this morning… your very own little campfire! Here is my pattern.

Campfire
