Foggy, rainy and dark today!

A good day to stay in and lounge around or try and get some work done around here!  I spent a good deal of time on Instagram this morning mainly looking at posts from lauramattox89.  If you like quilts, especially little ones, you will love her IG posts!  She has darling quilts, accessories, and decorating inspiration.  I always get inspired after viewing her IG account.
 Speaking of,  I posted my first photo on IG!!!  I used my camera on my tablet and it was easy peasy!  IG is actually much easier to post to and stay up to date with others and it doesn't take nearly the time that blogging does but I do like my blog and my friend's blogs so I'll probably end up doing both.  I have people following me on IG and I never post! LOL!  So, now I have posted and
we'll see if I get any feedback.
Remember this blanket?  Well, it's been frogged but it has also been restarted.  one of the sides was increasing and this has happened before to me.  I evidently get messed up when I turn the corners.  So, I have made it wider....121 chains to start to make the blanket 32" by 32"....hopefully.
I have the first row done and please wish me luck!  Speaking of luck, here are some recipes designed to bring you some............I always forget to make them but maybe this year I won't!
 Here's the link

I am already thinking of gifts to make for this coming year!  I have all those birthdays in July and one the end of January too.  I saw this and thought it would be great for the grands for "hauling all their cash".  Here are the directions and tutorial

and to end on a funny note...........there's this.............I should have seen it coming but I didn't..........

That's all for today!
 Happy Trails!!!

  1. I can't find you on Instagram! The button does not work for me. What is your instagram "name"? I love the photos on instagram, but I like reading blogs even more.

  2. Your little cartoon gave me a laugh. It was so bad, it was almost good. I, too, should have seen it coming. But didn't. :o] Ah yes, it's the little things in life . . .

  3. I saw your IG post today and was very happy to see you there. I do not use it as often as others do but still enjoy it. Doesn't take as much time keeping up with folks as reading blogs or FB. Like you, I still love my blog and my blogging buddies and refuse to give that up.

  5. I also post some on IG, but kind of come and go. It is fast and easy. So many bloggers have switched over because of that. I'll see if I can find you!

  6. Second time is the charm for your baby blanket! All of us have to rip out. I did it three times with that toddler sweater in the past few days, but I finished it this afternoon! Hallelujah!
    I have an instagram account but I forget to check it. I seriously go weeks without even looking at it. I much prefer blogs as it seems a lot more personal for some reason. I sure hope you do keep on blogging my friend.
    Blessings and love,
    Betsy

  7. I agree, I love instagram as it is quick and easy. Full of inspiration as well. I do love my blog though for different reasons, and like to do a bit of both!

    1. That would probably sell well in your craft shows. Boys can be hard to buy for and it would be a great gift for girls too.
