Weekend Projects

I've finished up these churn dash blocks that I started quite awhile ago. I hope to get them sewn into a quilt top by the end of the weekend.
I'm crocheting another baby afghan from the basketweave blanket pattern that I got at Knitting Today up in Wolcotville in northern Indiana.
Here is a close up of the blanket. Looks like I'm in a pink mood.And, I've started to crochet this baby afghan. The picture doesn't do the colors justice, but it is aqua, green, pink blue and off white variegated yarn.

I'm trying to use up some of the fabric and yarn I have here and finish up some of my UFOs. I haven't bought much so far this year. But, then there is the retreat up in Shipshewana. There is some good shopping to be done there.

The weather here is gorgeous. I know there won't be any more snow this season because we spent a lot of time looking for a new snow shovel - one of the plastic type ones that is lighter weight. We found one after we had all of the big snows, and it hasn't snowed since. It will look pretty just sitting there in the garage. That's just fine with me. I'm ready for spring. Hope you are all stitching, knitting or crocheting this weekend.

I love your churn dash blocks! I saw several quilts at the Lancaster show using the same colors...makes me think that I need to make a pink and brown quilt too!

Luann: LouAnne here. Your baby "basketweave" afghan looks a lot like the pattern I got in the book The Shop On blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. I'm about half done with mine in mint green. Never having looked at it from a distance, I'm not sure if it gives the same look. It was called Baby Blocks, but there were no pictures in the book, so I just HAD to try it while I was in my winter knitting mood. The slow progress has made me vow to never knit a baby blanket again - it will always be crochet from now on!
