A few of you have requested to see a photo of the finished afghan. . . . . the one I switched from primarily black to dominate cream coloring. It turned out beautiful using Vanna's Choice that I picked up at Michael's. It's throw size. . . . .just perfect for little 'ole me when chilly nights arrive (if they ever do).
There isn't a pattern for the color scheme but you can see I simply alternated two blocks, swapping the cream and green with each other in the centers but then keeping the black and gold consistent in all of the blocks. Instructions for granny squares can be found for free on the internet.
Yes, I know summer is officially over but in the southwest, it isn't over until the temperatures go down and the butterflies go home. So I guess it's still summer here because the butterflies are out in abundance! Or are those moths? Pretty creatures whatever they are. And oh do they love our lantana bushes! Remember Molly our last Golden Retriever? She would have pounced all over these winged beauties. Gracie acts like she doesn't even know they're here!
I know some of you have seen snow and felt cold temperatures already. Looks like we're hanging on to summer just a little bit longer. . . . . .
