Welcome to Gramma's Quilting Room.

In my last post, I talked about the Pokey Dot Throw and that I hadn't posted a photo of it. LuAnn (check out her blog!) wanted to see it, so here it is folded in half. Just for you, LuAnn. :0) Hiding behind the throw is daughter DeeDee who laid claim on that throw and it now resides at her house. See the border on it? That is what I am going to do on the striped throw after I put on the last 2 stipe sets that are left.

I spent lots of time Friday sitting in front of the TV with this covering me up for a while-it was kind of chilly in here. I don't know if you can see it or not, but at the bottom of the photo is a little ball of yarn. That's how much is left of the blue that I'm using for the every other stripe. Of course it isn't a color that I can just walk into a store and buy. I had to order from JoAnn's, so this will not be done by Tuesday as I had planned. But I will stalk my order status so I don't loose my finishing enthusiasm.

You all know the rule about ordering a $4 skein of yarn when the shipping is $8, you have to order other stuff, right??? So I had to order the heart die for the Go! because I had a 50% off coupon. (And I saw a photo of an adorable pillow that I want to make for some adorable girls.) It took the discount off the order page but if it doesn't work, I have a set of knitting needles it can be used on. Always cover those bases!!

Now I must make some zucchini bread before it gets too much warmer and I loose all interest in the kitchen.

I just love that afghan. The JoAnns close to me just moved into a newer, larger space. I might make a run there this afternoon....you know....just to look! If I lived closer I'd come over to see the afghan in person and have some zucchini bread and visit with you. Thanks for the post Judy.

Lovely afghan. Any reason to fill out an order is a good one. Hope you get everything finished up as soon as it comes in.

LOL.... yup, know that rule! I know someone else who has the rule....'you can't just get a gallon of milk; you have to get the oreos to go with it.' ;D

WOW! That throw is AMAZING! As a non-crochet'er, I see something like that and think.."I can't even fathom how long it takes to do a throw like that! And how does she make those circles???"
