the colors didn't really translate well, but here are my choices for the background of my next quilt. think the colors of twilight .... deep marine blues with either a hint of teal or purple. this is all i had time for today at mary jo's. i'm going back to mary jo's tomorrow, to figure out my colors for the flower stems and leaves. but i don't know what colors to be shopping for ! any suggestions? oh! i have more pictures, including close ups, of my fabrics over here !




i've also been crocheting ... i've added a few blocks to my slow-growing blanket. i crocheted some this morning, and in the car to and from gastonia to mary jo's, and last night while watching a really scary movie ! i barely crocheted a stitch, as i couldn't keep my eyes off the tv screen, though i really wanted to hide behind my wee square.

I have always wanted to make a granny square afghan like that. It looks beautiful. Do you have instructions for a bunch of different squares or you just making it up as you go?

i'm not making them up ...they're from a book, _200 crochet blocks/squares (?)_ by jan eaton. i'm trying to use a different design for each square w/o repeating.

That is going to be an absolutely kickass blanket! I love how each square is unique.
