Under Construction

 I pulled all of the blocks (lanterns) I had made last year 
and decided today was the day to put the all together!
I arranged them on my bed in their general positions,
 and began to crochet them in rows.
The interesting twist to their construction is that the row of single crochet is done on the wrong side,
as in 'right sides together' when you are seaming.
 This results in a beautifully even row of 'stitches' on the right side which looks very delicate!
After I did a few rows, I placed all of the pieces into piles so that I could go to sleep 
yet keep things ordered for another day of stitching!
Now if only the cats respect the piles!


  1. That's going to be a real show stopper!!!

  2. Oh my! That will be beautiful (it already is). Such pretty colors. All that seaming would drive me bonkers though!

  3. You'll have to let us know how that goes. Giroux has been into EVERYTHING lately. EVERYTHING must go in the cupboard or he runs off with parts. LOL

    That blanket is going to be lovely with that perfect green border.

  4. I bought that same pattern and did about three rows before I absolutely hated the colors I had chosen. I need to try again with a different color pallette because yours is stunning. I hope your kitties stayed out and respected the piles. HA!

  5. Yippee! It will be gorgeous, and I bet the cats didn't respect your piles?

  6. Oh boy. My favorite post of yours of the YEAR SO FAR!!!
    I have to send it to Sue mrs. Mcawber! and to my friend Regina so she can see your construction! WOW

  7. Oooh, I love how it's coming together!

  8. Wow, it's look fantastic!!! I think the cats would have a ball with all those piles!! xx

  9. I love a good scrappy afghan! That's going to be wonderful!

  10. It is going to be stunning. Good luck with the finish!

I dug out several pairs of light weight summer pants that fint when I had the 25lb weight gain last Spring and decided to do some alteration...
