First Hooky Project of 2011

Looky, looky what came in the mail today! This box of Yummy Yarn from Aunt Vada! Wow!! The kids say thank you, for the candy & goodies....Alli says thank you SO much for the BD money......and Ashley & I say thank you SOOOOOOOOO much for the box full of beautiful yarn! Hmmmmmm.........what to make, what to make.
Ok, so here's my 'Ta-Da' pictures......first crochet project of 2011 FINISHED!My Attic24 inspired pillow/cushion. I used the same colors as I'm using for my Granny stripe blanket so this will co-ordinate. Picked up the pillow from Good Will for $1.35 & just stitched front & back together once I was finished.

I'm really tickled with how it turned out. Now to continue working on my Granny Stripes & start on something else new. I do have another Good Will pillow to cover.........


Below is a random picture that I snapped of the girls in Walmart the other night......when we were out celebrating Alli's birthday.

Don't you just love those expressions.....They told me not to even ask....just to take their picture, so I did. Guess it was some inside joke between the two of them. LOL!

After I finished the stitching my 25 little squares together.....& debating on how to back this pillow.....I decided the simplest thing to do would be to whip up 25 more little squares & do the back just like the front. So, I stitched most of these up Tuesday while in the van riding to & from, here & there about town.

Kaye was asking about Alli's was CHOCOLATE, of course! Remember, she's my little chocoholic. Everyone was so full from Pizza Hut Tuesday evening that Alli decided she just wanted to wait & do cake & icecream on Wednesday. Why not continue the celebration on throughout the week?

Alli was not wanting her picture taken last night as we lit the candles & sang to her......

......but Jon was determined to make her smile!

Yum!!! Chocolate cake sounds delicious right now. I might have to make one soon even though we don't have any birthdays going on around here.
