WIP – 05/15/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Beaver Applique

Well, I received the crochet vacation I was wanting a little early. My 6 year old daughter was home sick all last week. I haven’t picked up a crochet hook since the beginning of the month. Ugh. So the last applique I finished was this little beaver. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been… Continue reading WIP – 05/15/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Beaver Applique

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!… Continue reading WIP – 05/05/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Campfire Applique

WIP – 05/03/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Whitetail Fawn Applique

The weather is finally getting nice and making it hard to sit and crochet rather than be out and enjoying it. Actually, I’ve been making it a point to get out and walk a mile a day… it’s a nice break from all this concentration. I’m thinking I may take a little crochet vacation after… Continue reading WIP – 05/03/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Whitetail Fawn Applique

WIP – 04/30/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Bald Eagle Applique

It seems like it’s taking f..o..r..e..v..e..r to finish this blanket! But it’s my fault. I got the crazy notion to create my own patterns for appliques to put on it. I have never created anything doing freeform crochet before… but I am suprised (and proud!) of how well my appliques turn out! Some days creating… Continue reading WIP – 04/30/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Bald Eagle Applique

WIP – 4/13/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Hiker Applique

I’m still plugging away at creating my own applique patterns for my crochet woodland themed afghan. I actually have so many cute ideas that I am considering enlarging my blanket from afghan size to twin size, or even bigger! Here is my latest pattern: Crochet Hiker Applique Measures approximately 5” tall by 4.5” wide. Supplies medium worsted… Continue reading WIP – 4/13/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Hiker Applique

WIP – 4/6/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Fish Applique

Not much done this week, again, on my woodland afghan. My daughter was off on Spring Break last week and this week she has been sick with tonsillitis. I did manage to get a few more solid blocks made and I finished another of my own appliques! A fish! Here is my pattern: Crochet Fish… Continue reading WIP – 4/6/17 Woodland Themed Afghan My New Fish Applique
