Where have I been and what have I been doing

OMG, can't believe it's been so long since I last posted.  I've got to come up with a better game plan to stay on top of things.  I have been very busy crochetting away.  I love to crochet :)  It calms me and provides the creative outlet I seem to need....every day!

Here's what I've completed while away:
First up, my very first QUILT!  I am so excited!  I used the applique I purchased at the Sewing Expo from Hawaiin Applique.  I can't believe I actually made a quilt with a backing and hand sewn border. This will be a Christmas wall hanging that I seriously thinking of giving to my sister-in-law as a present.  She is my quilt sewing buddy in that she inspires me :)

Next up, a baby blanket (afghan) and matching hat.  This is to replace the hat I made for my nephew's new baby, but was way too small.    I had a small problem with counting....I didn't... so its not exectly square, but I'm hoping the baby won't notice.  The pattern is my own, one row of double crochet, a row of single crochet, a row of bubbles, a row of single crochet, repeat until reaches desired length.  I love how the back side came out smooth and consistant :)

And third,  a large afghan for my hubby!  Yeah, I'm pretty proud 'cause afghans take like forever to make and that's usually way past my attention span, so for me to actually FINISH a project that I started months ago, was pretty awesome :)  And hubby loves it!  He is so happy I made him an afghan.  Apparently it's the first and only one he has that he can call his own.  Kids...not so happy, they were looking forward to it as well.  So on to more afghans!
