Going Frog Wild

So, I finished what has to be my favorite of
I give you Mr. Fitzwilliam Frog

Isn't he just dashing? 
Love the fabulous mustache.

I also finished Mrs. Sheila the Sheep.
She was supposed to be knitting,
but since I am a crocheter. 
She had to change her hobby as well.

I also made the rest of the animals
that I had finished into ornaments.  
I used Moda Honeycomb Precuts for the
ornament and outlined the Aida fabric in
using Aurifil #2250 12 wt.  thread.

Here are the eight that I have completed
so far.  I am only  four behind now.  

I can't wait to see these on our tree this year.

Sophie's Universe Finished

Guess what I finished up last week?

It is a little less that six feet square.
I absolutely love this afghan and
my garden in is full bloom, so it makes
the perfect picture backdrop.

I mostly used my scraps and
stash to work it up.
I only spent $20 on this beauty.  Very gratifying!
I have a second one already

 You can find the pattern for this Sophie's Universe
It is free pattern and I really can't say enough
for the pattern and the pictures that accompany it. 
It is very crochet friendly. 
Now off to visit a few flowers in my garden.

I adore lots, and lots of color. 
The more the merrier. 
I have always been drawn to the old
cottage gardens that are full
of all types and colors of flowers. 
Maybe, I can get out tomorrow to catch a few
more photos of the flowers that
are loving all this rain
we have had.
