"Tree" 33 x 38

Thank you for all your kind comments on my afghan project & the squares.

This has been in my closet a long time & is a perfect thing to stitch during the Winter weather. I'm especially enjoying the sampler motifs. Guess I'm itching for some repro sampler stitching. : )

This is "tree" block. Which makes seven completed blocks. The tree stitched up quickly. Next, I'll either stitch a corner block or the house block
Acorn Sampler Afghan


Such pretty flowers from DMIL. They brighten up the whole room. (The Valentine dog & Ground hog were gifts to my children from DMIL)

I'm waiting for my next selection to arrive at the public library. It should be an Alice Munro book. I finished the Thirteenth Tale ... enjoyed every chapter, enjoyed the weaving together of all the details, enjoyed the characters -- and what an awesome ending.

I'm really liking the blocks on your afghan. They are stitching up great!

I'm going to check at the library for The Thirteenth Tale. I'll let you know...

Your afghan is going to be such a treasure, Lelia! Your daffodils are so cheery - can't wait to see them out in the garden. :D

Love the progress on your afghan. You'll be done before you know it. Your flowers are so pretty! I had some just like that for Christmas and they were a delight.

Oh, I think the tree is my favorite so far, can't wait to see the next square. I will have to look for the book you've recommended, I'm always up for a good book. The flowers are just beautiful, I can't wait for spring to arrive here and those are the next best thing =D

You are progressing along on the afghan quite nicely! I have an afghan I should probably break out and work on it, but there's no spare time to be found for me right now. :)

Michelle said...

Your afghan squares are coming along great!

I really enjoyed your post today. I got to see a new square (it looks great), see some fun spring stuff (I need to find one of those groundhogs, to cute), and I have a new book to put on my must read list (thanks for the review). Looking forward to seeing what the next square you do looks like, they are all so pretty.
